Whether your treasure is a vehicle, boat, bike, some real Pirates Booty or some other thing that you love and value, you want to know where it is at all times. Wouldnt it make life easy to have access to your treasure remotely? You could ping your treasures location. Ask your treasure the temperature of its surrounding area. Set a geo-fence to see if your treasure leaves its typical location. The possibilities are application and market-dependent, of course, but the need is the same: you want information from and about your treasure.
A Compass to Lead the Way
Leveraging data to help you make the right decisions about your treasure is the best way to get a good sense of direction. Think of data generated by your asset tracking devices your treasure as a compass. That data can help you increase savings by suspending and activating devices over the air, or even set thresholds to the maximum amount of information you want your treasure to send and receive. But wait! Where do you find an IoT compass for your treasure? A connectivity management portal, which gives you access to an enablement platform with real-time visibility to devices and the network will guide you on your decisions with regards to your treasure.
Use Landmarks to keep up Efficiency
Sometimes you might end up on the wrong road. Use a land mark to avoid this. In the asset tracking world, Service Level Agreements can be used in this way. They identify, target and track key metrics such as uptime, response time, severity levels, and issue resolution time. Avoid going down the wrong path, or, in our case, wasting time with technology that just doesnt work for your treasure map. Use the landmarks to stay on the right path and secure your route.
Go Cellular or go Home!
Lets be real for a minute. The best treasure maps are those that use cellular. This way, your treasure can be tracked anywhere, anytime. Get past the stigma that cellular is expensive. With a flexibility rate plan, pay per use or customized plan based on the behavior and reporting frequency of devices, you can get to a low total cost of ownership.
