What to Look For in a Trailer Tracking IoT Solution Provider
As the Internet of Things continues to grow and expand, more and more companies are turning to IoT solutions to improve efficiency and reduce downtime. IoT solutions are already being used by several industries including agriculture, oil and gas and manufacturing. The trucking industry is one of the newest industries to adopt IoT solutions.
Businesses in the trucking industry can benefit by using IoT systems to track and monitor trailers. These trailers and the contents inside often add up to a significant amount. In fact, the average value of one trailer full of merchandise is around $200,000. It’s no surprise that trucking companies are looking for new ways to locate and track their trailers.
Choosing a trailer tracking IoT solution provider can be difficult. It’s important you select a company that is able to offer the greatest value for your money. Look for the following qualities when searching for an IoT solutions provider:
Quick and Easy Installation
The installation and maintenance of IoT devices on a fleet of several hundred trailers can be a daunting process. Select a service provider that is able to offer quick and easy installation and remote monitoring of your system. This allows your fleet to get back on the road as quickly as possible. Battery life should also be considered. You can avoid a lot of future problems if you choose a solutions provider that offers a solar powered system.
Integration With Existing Systems
Many IoT solutions require companies to purchase new equipment, software and systems. Selecting an IoT provider that offers integration with existing systems can save you money and further reduce the time spent on installation.
Easy Access to Data
IoT devices collect massive amounts of data. The right IoT solution puts this data at your fingertips. All that is needed is a cell phone, laptop or computer. Choose a provider that allows you to access relevant data at any time, from any location in the world.
Variety of Options
Experienced IoT solution providers understand that different companies have different needs. Choose a provider that offers a variety of options that add value to your system.
