Businesses need to know where their wireless and iot investment is going and have certainty about the management of their devices. Most organizations that have asset tracking systems use technology designed for other purposes and retrofit wireless and IoT into them. However, these systems can't tell the whole story about devices that are data connected and are therefore limited in their reporting capabilities.
A typical asset management system is unaware of the subscription associated with a device and unable to determine whether the device is active and working. This presents a significant challenge when considering re-deploying a device into the field or moving a device from one user to another. Device re-usability enables organizations to save significant hardware purchase expense by identifying devices anywhere within the organization that are in good working order but are not currently deployed or are sitting idle with employees.
