Asset tracking software for locating and monitoring moving objects in real time

LEAP – Monitor your locations, optimize your processes, generate business

Via our Locating Engine and Analytics Platform (LEAP), we offer companies a means of monitoring their objects using location and condition-based information. By incorporating IoT sensors, LEAP opens up ways for you to respond to the collected data flexibly and in real time, and – in turn – to optimize your processes and realize brand-new business models.

LEAP is not some complicated locating system. Rather, it can be implemented almost effortlessly within company-specific structures to accommodate business models that rely on location-based data. Our asset tracking software gives you full control over your assets at all times along with access to the related location and condition information.

What can our LEAP asset tracking system do?

LEAP (Locating Engine and Analytics Platform) is a locating and tracking platform that provides companies with sensor-based information on demand: Smart IoT sensors collect data about mobile objects and goods, and deliver useful value-added information from the process chain in real time – from logistics through to delivery – to enable complete monitoring of their current location and condition. As soon as an object reaches or leaves a predefined location (a technique known as geofencing) or when defined sensor thresholds are exceeded or undershot, the system sends corresponding notifications via email or submits them to the relevant interfaces. Not only does this allow companies to develop services for their own customers based on the data from LEAP; it can also play a major role in optimizing costs. In the area of return logistics, for example, trackers can be used much more cost effectively or can be conveniently leased as part of our Device as a Service package.

Using LEAP to unlock untapped potential

Our experience has shown that companies often lack the transparency required for efficient object management. At the same time, however, many of them balk at the effort involved in collecting and managing the necessary information. From the perspective of putting the necessary hardware and software into operation and managing these, they think that this would take up too much time and too many resources, particularly when different data sources and platforms have to be interlinked. The complexity increases even further when different use cases impose diverse requirements on the systems and when solutions from different manufacturers need to be combined with one another. For this reason, it is often the case that the potential for optimization simply remains untapped.

By contrast, our LEAP asset tracking system offers a relatively easy and cost-effective way of monitoring and managing objects via real-time tracking. Consequently, it opens up new opportunities for companies to unlock their own potential and to develop IoT business models, e.g., in the area of track and pay.

How does the LEAP asset tracking system work?

As a locating platform, LEAP is based on an integrated combination of IoT sensors, asset tracking software, and life cycle management. This makes LEAP a cost-effective and user-friendly solution that increases transparency and shows companies where there is potential for optimization.

  1. IoT sensors
    Once we have analyzed your individual use cases, we provide the appropriate sensors for collecting the required information. LEAP allows you to use IoT sensors from different manufacturers for the purpose of collecting data points such as temperature, air humidity, fill level, location, and any abrupt shocks.
  2. Asset tracking software
    The data collected from the sensors is brought together on the LEAP locating platform and is clearly presented by the software. Consequently, you get an overview of all the objects that are equipped with sensors, are able to view all the relevant information in real time, and can configure alarms for specific thresholds. The advantage for you: The tracking platform is cloud-based and so you can access it at any time and from absolutely anywhere.
  3. Life cycle management for IoT sensors
    The intelligent life cycle management feature within LEAP covers the complete hardware management for the IoT sensors – from the battery life to the duration of mobile communications contracts – thereby ensuring the seamless collection of all information. What’s more, the LEAP refurbishment process makes it easier for you to get defective hardware repaired and replaced.

Ideal application areas for our LEAP asset tracking system

LEAP is ideal for any company with a large number of moving objects whose location and/or condition play(s) a crucial role in the company’s own business processes. It is also perfect for companies that want to develop business models themselves in the areas of IoT, tracking, track and pay, tracking as a service, or geofencing. Not only that, but the ability to locate all moving objects indoors or outdoors opens up countless potential uses for LEAP:

LEAP creates greater transparency with regard to deliveries and the modes of transport used. Information such as the location, temperature, or any abrupt movements can be tracked.

In conjunction with IoT sensors, LEAP can be used to measure and transmit fill levels, enabling massive gains in efficiency when planning waste collection routes.

LEAP can be used to locate vehicles at any time. Even capital-intensive vehicles, such as forklifts or cranes, can be monitored worldwide.
