Bringing the IoT to the aviation industry
Inseego, Undagrid partnership targets asset utilization for aviation managers
Inseego, a global provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and solutions for the internet of things (IoT) and Undagrid, a solution provider for non-motorized assets, have announced a global strategic partnership targeting the aviation industry.
This cooperation leverages both companies’ know-how of asset information systems throughout aviation markets, providing owners of assets across airports a complete asset utilization solution.
With the partnership, Ctrack, the asset tracking SaaS platform, and Undagrid, will connect to enable asset visibility throughout airport infrastructure. This partnership has already won a large project at Amsterdam’s Schipol airport with Dutch airline KLM, and additional projects in Germany, Hong Kong and Scandinavia are in the works.
Undagrid launched its sensor and localization-based solution a few years ago with deployments at more than 10 airports in Europe and the Middle East. Ctrack has deployed its airport solution at Schipol with both KLM Equipment Services (KES) and dnata. In addition, Ctrack has airport solutions deployed in Germany, and Asia.
Ctrack and Undagrid said they have worked to integrate the end-to-end solution to bring total visibility, security and safety for a variety of airport equipment. The integrated SaaS solution provides management a complete visibility on all deployed assets.
“We are very excited to be working with Undagrid to bring a highly differentiated asset tracking solution to the market,” said Chris Lytle, EVP of telematics and SaaS solutions at Inseego. “The combination of Ctrack and Undagrid will make our customers smarter with deeper end to end visibility into their assets.”
“We are pleased to combine forces with Inseego to serve existing and new aviation customers,” said Rolf van de Velde, CEO of Undagrid. “Inseego has a rich history of deploying fleet management solutions and we look forward to delivering great value to our customers through an integrated solution.”
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Inseego provides intelligent wireless solutions for the worldwide mobile communications market and software-as-a-service (SaaS) and solutions for the IoT. The company sells its telematics solutions under the Ctrack brand, including fleet and airport management, asset tracking and monitoring, stolen vehicle recovery, and usage-based insurance platforms.
