Thailand-based DRVR has joined forces with Internet of Things connectivity provider M2M Intelligence to connect fleets of vehicles globally. The fleet analytics business will work with M2M Intelligence to tackle cross-border telecoms and increase operational efficiency as the business continues to expand across south east Asia.
DRVR’s platform allows businesses to monitor their fleet in real-time to gather valuable insights in areas such as vehicle performance and driver behaviour.
M2M Intelligence will provide an end-to-end IoT connectivity solution. Enabling full visibility over the SIM estate provided via the INSIGHT management platform will help DRVR control its growing number of connected ‘things.’ This level of transparency reduces risk by ensuring all IoT devices are functioning as anticipated. The platform also lowers costs by allowing DRVR to closely align payment to actual usage.
David Henderson, co-founder and CEO of DRVR, said: ‘‘As the telematics market in Asia continues to grow, we needed an international partner that could provide reliable connectivity to support our growth. This is essential to ensure we can keep up with the pace of innovation.
“M2M’s Intelligence portal INSIGHT is completely unique – there’s nothing on the market like it. Without it, we run the risk of losing vast amounts of time manually managing spreadsheets, and the majority of this work was guesswork. With it, we have complete visibility of our data consumption combined with reliable connections and great coverage. It’s a win-win.’’
Paul Bandell, co-founder and director at M2M Intelligence said: ” Our global multi-network solution is continuing to help take clients into new territories, helping create some really exciting new business opportunities. We’re delighted to be working with DRVR and look forward to seeing how our solution helps them grow in new markets.”
