In today’s advanced technological era, consumers want the best of both worlds. They want solutions that are dynamic, complex and feature-rich. But they also want solutions that are convenient and easy to use. The tension between these two ideas is one of the biggest challenges in business today, but a new solution from M2M specialist Pedigree Technologies promises to provide an integrated real-time operations management solution that boasts a single software interface, truly bringing complexity and simplicity together in one package.
OneView from Pedigree is a suite of Web and tablet-based applications designed to track, monitor and diagnose equipment, along with asset and fleet vehicles from a single software interface. The single system will be tasked with monitoring all of a business’ critical resources, including people, assets, equipment, inventory and more. It will also integrate data about these physical assets with workforce information such as location, service hours and job assignments in real time to enable comprehensive operations management and increase efficiency. OneView helps companies monitor these assets remotely, allowing them to dispatch vehicles and send documents and location information to mobile workers.
The single Web interface is the key to making the OneView suite convenient and easy to use. It allows users to monitor service and support needs of mobile or remote operations, indentify available resources and assign them as needed, and prioritize critical needs to maximize these resources. Also, OneView boasts a number of applications that users can combine in order to make their operations more efficient. Examples: Companies that utilize refrigerated trucks can combine trailer monitoring capabilities with fleet management solutions to track the vehicle’s location and monitor temperatures. Companies that replenish liquid inventories can view tank levels at customers’ sites in parallel with delivery vehicle location and route details. Agricultural cooperatives keep specialized applicators in motion at critical times of the season by coordinating supply resources with multiple and remote jobs to cover more acres in less time.
There are a number of factors that make OneView stand out from other solutions in the same space. For one thing, it’s scalable platform of integrated applications helps users increase the number and types of assets they can monitor. The solution is turnkey, and Pedigree provides managed deployments, such as hardware sourcing, configuration, provisioning, installation, training and more. The platform is hardware independent, which allows for rapid integration of new CDMA-enabled network devices. It boasts SaaS (News - Alert) applications, which give a lower cost of entry for companies, and they can be accessed from anywhere at any time.
