New functionality has been added to the popular asset-tracking software from OnAsset Intelligence.
The company’s Vision Software Platform, delivered as a Software-as-a-Service product, provides shippers with 24/7 visibility into the location and condition of high-value assets within the supply chain. Intuitive mapping capabilities and custom data overlays that visualize the real-time state and location as well as the status history combine to track high-value assets using OnAsset’s Sentry devices.
The new functionality establishes threshold limits regarding the temperature, pressure, humidity, light, motion, shock & vibration of transported assets; creates virtual perimeter geofences that track the location of cargo from origin to destination; customizes notifications - via email; SMS; or EDI exchange; in the event of an alert; incorporates third-party data feeds that include weather reports; traffic reports; surveillance cameras at points of interests, such as rest stops or gas stations; airline arrivals; sea port arrivals; crime feeds; and other data feeds; and integrates Vision data directly into the ERP systems of shippers, manufacturers, distribution centers and retail outlets - providing complete visibility for in-transit and delivery status.
“Our Sentry asset tracking devices provide a wealth of data, and the Vision platform enables customers to interpret the data, and turn it into actionable intelligence in the event of an alert during transit,” said Chris Robison, vice president of development and professional services. “The latest version of Vision incorporates functionality that’s specifically designed to work the way that shippers and logistics providers work. Much more than just ‘dots-on-a-map’, Vision is a business-centric tool that helps companies secure their supply chain, and reduce their transportation costs.”
