In Motion Technology – a provider of mobile networking technologies designed to connect and manage equipment, information and people in the field more efficiently – announced that it has entered a partnership with AeroScout Inc., a provider of unified asset visibility.
The companies say the solutions will allow customers to track and manage assets in vehicles enabled with In Motion’s wireless networks. The partnership also will enable organizations to extend asset tracking and monitoring to the field, reducing the cost of lost and misplaced equipment, improving inventory management and increasing staff productivity, according to the companies.
AeroScout says its solutions use Wi-Fi Active RFID to track the location, status and condition of mobile assets and people. “We’re pleased to be working with In Motion Technology to bring our asset visibility applications, which leverage standard wireless networks, to vehicles and field personnel,” says Chuck Pledger, vice president of global channel sales for AeroScout. “This partnership takes mobile asset management to a new level and extends our operational improvement capabilities to a new set of customers.”
In Motion Technology says its patented solutions turn vehicles into high-performance wireless hotspots and provide headquarters staff with real-time information from the field to manage operations to peak efficiency. Coupling AeroScout’s UAV leadership and Wi-Fi Active RFID with In Motion’s mobile networking capabilities will provide organizations with an unprecedented capability to track and manage mobile operations, says Kirk Moir, In Motion Technology president and chief executive officer.
“In Motion Technology is focused on enabling organizations to operate their fleet vehicles as mobile branch offices,” Moir says. “We are pleased to partner with best-in-class application and systems providers like AeroScout to enable mobile organizations to maximize their efficiency and reduce operating cost by improving response times and optimizing service delivery.”
