Numerex Announces New Flexible Location-Based Services Platform
Platform Supports Satellite and Cellular Tracking and Monitoring
ATLANTA, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Numerex Corp (NASDAQ: NMRX), a leading single source provider of secure machine-to-machine (M2M) products and services, today unveiled its new Location-Based Services (LBS) platform, which provides enterprises with secure, scalable solutions for monitoring, tracking and recovering a wide variety of mobile assets.
This new platform addresses the needs of agriculture, transportation, construction and many other industries seeking to rapidly implement cost-effective tracking and monitoring solutions for mobile or semi-mobile assets. Numerex's LBS platform provides asset visibility and control from one easy-to-use, multilingual, web-based portal. It supports highly configurable applications, integrating to several long-life battery- and vehicle-powered M2M devices connected through both cellular and satellite networks.
Numerex platform users benefit from key features such as:
- "Slap and Map" Simplicity: Tracking devices can be installed, activated and visible on a mapping application in minutes.
- Satellite and Cellular Options: Connectivity is tailored to meet budget and geographic needs.
- Motion Alert: User knows when the asset goes in motion, and can track its movement.
"Knowing where mobile assets are at any point in time, and when they move unexpectedly, is a top-of-mind issue across a number of industries. The cost of setting up and deploying a solution requiring cellular or satellite coverage used to break the business model except for very high value assets. With our new LBS platform users can show a return on investment even for assets worth only a few thousand dollars. Numerex is opening a new segment of the market with a horizontal platform approach, making economical solutions available for a broad array of needs and markets - from tracking a shipping container, to a construction site generator, to a snowmobile trailer, to almost anything," said Darren Koenig, vice president of marketing and products at Numerex.
