M2M company Gemalto has won a deal to provide secure connectivity services for a fleet-management solution developed by US telematics designer Morey.
Gemalto (Amsterdam, Netherlands) said its technology would provide “actionable intelligence”, allowing enterprises using the Morey (Woodridge, IL, USA) product to track assets, optimize utilization and manage inventory for mixed fleets.
“Gemalto’s solution helped us reduce costs and improve features while leveraging a single hardware design for both CDMA and GSM carriers,” said Diego Borrego, Morey’s chief technology officer. “Gemalto’s easy-to-integrate solutions along with outstanding customer support helped us expand our offering into more flexible hardware offerings for multiple fixed and mobile assets.”
Morey says its products are highly customizable and allow customers to select features depending on use cases and geographical area.
The device either plugs into a vehicle’s diagnostic port or can be hard-wired to a machine or vehicle, while Gemalto’s technology supports secure GPS capabilities and multi-mode connectivity.
“Supplying a flexible M2M solution to Morey ensures that they can meet their development timelines and begin delivery and performance improvements quickly,” said Paul Kobos, the head of sales for M2M at Gemalto North America. “Our work with Morey enables them to provide construction firms, heavy equipment rental companies, and transport fleets with a cost-effective and long-lasting option for optimizing business operations.”
Claiming to be a leader in the digital security space, Gemalto generated annual revenues of €2.2 billion ($3 billion) in 2012 and employs more than 10,000 staff across 43 countries.
