Safecube launches IoT-enabled Asset Tracking Solution LocaTrack

French company Safecube, a joint venture between Michelin, Sigfox France and Argon & Co aimed at developing IoT-solutions for the supply chain ecosystem, has launched a new IoT-enabled Asset solution they call LocaTrack. The purpose of this tool is to offer a global view of the fleet using an intuitive interface for monitoring assets activity. Trackers positioned on assets and connected to the Sigfox 0G network allow customers to locate trailers, pallets or industrial tools exactly.
The platform integrates directly into the customer’s information system. It allows asset-tracking, condition-monitoring (full, empty, cold, hot, etc.) and optimization of asset-management.

This solution is the logical next step in our goods tracking solution. By democratizing asset tracking, especially for non-motorized assets, we are enabling logistics and industrial players to better exploit their assets.

said Waël Cheaib, CEO of Safecube.
The Sigfox 0G network is one of the key differentiators for Safecube, offering low bandwidth to retrieve just the data needed for the visibility issues specific to the supply chain. It allows low energy consumption, a tracker life of up to several years and a low cost.

How can IoT be a game-changer in supply chain applications? Firstly, by providing visibility beyond company borders. In the past, end-to-end visibility was limited by the cost of the solutions needed to capture relevant and valuable data. The return on investment was simply not achievable. Technology like Sigfox is a game-changer because it captures relevant data at minimum cost. Secondly, by making it possible to capture this significant data, in the right place and at the right time, in a simple way, without impacting the declared infrastructures or installing a new one. You cannot handle what you cannot measure! LocaTrack allows companies to detect the reality of their business to take informed & relevant decisions

said Patrick Cason, General Manager of Sigfox France.
The company has chosen Microsoft Azure services – including Azure IoT Hub – for its platform. One of the reasons for this choice was security: Each datacenter is physically protected by a multi-layered protection, with an end-to-end security, from network, servers and applications to data encryption. The LocaTrack solution is already being deployed with several large industrial companies.
