Each year thousands of assets are being stolen. This is why solutions which help businesses to protect their valuable assets are becoming more and more important. This is when GpsGate together with Tele2 IoT decided to create an out of the box solution for system integrators, which are now able to set the asset protection up and running with minimum administration and installation required. As a result, GpsGate continues to distribute their highly popular trial kit, expanding it’s global footprint.
Simplicity is the key
Today the criminality statistics are quite shocking, as boats, motorcycles, caravans and other valuable assets are targeted by thieves. For instance, judging by MSC statistics, around 10 000 boats are stolen in Europe every year. Fortunately, these days we are able to fight criminality with IoT technology. Having been on the market for more than 10 years, a Swedish company called GpsGate spotted the need to offer an easy out of the box tracking solution. To make it even simpler, they decided to arrange a partnership with Tele2 IoT to create the best in class starter kits for system integrators, who can now easily add an IoT tracking solution to their portfolio,
GpsGate ensuring scalable software platform
GpsGate’s web-based software platform allows companies to get the most relevant information about their assets. Built with the customers in mind, it is able to tell the location of the assets, allows to send messages and alerts whenever it is required, as well as it helps to access the historical reporting data to follow common IoT deployment trends.
“Our greatest mission is to ensure peace of mind for our customer,” – says Sven Vedin from GpsGate. “The more valuable the assets are the more customer cares about their security. Our flexible approach has proven to be extremely popular with customers around the world. From banks tracking ATMs in Saudi Arabia to factories ensuring a safe access for their workers in Malaysia – our solution is appreciated across the globe and is currently used in 150 countries.” The reason behind their success is clear for Sven : “We are fast and pragmatic and we really listen to our customers business cases.”
Tele2 IoT being more than just a connectivity partner
When searching for a proper connectivity partner, GpsGate was looking for the one who will have the simplest plug and play solution on the market. Out of many options, GpsGate decided to choose Tele2 IoT not only for its simplicity but also because of the similarities in the way they do business. “Tele2 IoT is extremely flexible and straightforward when it comes to their offering. While the other operators believe they can do everything, Tele2 IoT’s horizontal approach ensures that they are not competing with us. We like that attitude!” – says Sven Vedin. Together with Tele2 IoT GpsGate was able to create a win-win solution for their customers. The customers get very easy guidelines on how to start experimenting with their solution in a few minutes. Tele2 IoT is one of the few operators who offer the SIM’s which work globally and doesn’t lock them to the device, giving the customers an opportunity to test.
“I am really proud that GpsGate and Tele2 IoT are offering such an easy and scalable solution for our customers” – says Sven. “The era of power points and billboards is over. If you don’t show a solution to the customer, you are not even close to the money. Start small, have an idea, avoid huge investments, experiment and you will not regret.”
