Aeris partners with Roambee to enhance cold chain monitoring via IoT
The combined solution will allow companies to monitor shipments and assets through IoT technologies
Internet of things company Aeris announced it is working with Roambee, an IoT supply chain and enterprise asset visibility company, to help enterprises improve their monitoring of shipments and assets through IoT-based technologies offered by both companies.
Silicon Valley-based Roambee provides IoT-based, real-time global condition monitoring and visibility services for in-transit goods and in-field assets.
Roambee said its end-to-end solution simplifies global shipment visibility across the supply chain, including the entire cold chain process for enterprises. The company provides patented hardware and software technology, combined with an array of senor data, analytics, predictive reporting and open application programming interfaces (APIs).
Meanwhile, Aeris offers end-to-end IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions through its Aeris Mobility Platform (AMP) and Aeris Connectivity Platform (ACP). These two platforms enable enterprises and original equipment manufacturers to undergo a digital transformation process.
ACP is providing Roambee with the ability to manage its global data connectivity, which in turn is being used by Roambee for its shipping, inventory, pallet, asset and fleet monitoring services. This helps Roambee advance its service delivery while improving supply chain predictability and throughput for enterprises, Aeris said.
Roambee’s monitoring solutions provide managers with live data and situational alerts, thereby mitigating risks along the cold chain before they arise, while providing actionable insights for future business improvements. By leveraging ACP and its location-based services, Roambee’s services alleviates on-time delivery risks; reduces spoilage and damage risks; lowers theft and financial risk, and improves its overall delivery of service, the company added.
“By utilizing Aeris Connectivity Platform’s data management and location capabilities, Roambee better manages our own quality of global service for enterprises at scale. This is an integral part of Roambee’s portfolio of end-to-end, real-time visibility and monitoring solutions, and we are proud to partner with Aeris in this capacity,” said Vidya Subramanian, VP of products at Roambee.
Christina Richards, VP of global marketing at Aeris, said, “Through our work with Roambee, we enable them to easily manage a host of cold chain monitoring data analytics and connectivity capabilities for global enterprises. The Aeris Connectivity Platform is built for IoT and has been globally tested at scale.”
