On Tuesday at CTIA Wireless, KORE Telematics, a wireless service provider specializing in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and ILS Technology have partnered to accelerate M2M deployments across enterprise organizations. KORE and ILS are working with organizations to quickly integrate connected devices with existing enterprise IT systems, providing actionable M2M data and intelligence throughout workflow processes.
The two companies are using the KORE (Alpharetta, Ga., USA) PRiSMPro connected device platform and the ILS Technology (Boca Raton, Fla., USA) deviceWISE M2M application platform to enable organizations to access, view and analyze M2M data on existing enterprise IT systems. These cloud -based platforms allow organizations with a low-risk option for managing all aspects of their M2M deployments directly through their existing business processes.
“M2M is no longer the preserve of tactical, operational applications within service and support departments. Increasingly, M2M data needs to be made available throughout the enterprise and has strategic implications for ERP, supply chain and business intelligence applications,” said Robin Duke-Woolley, founder and CEO of Beecham Research. “Our most recent research of M2M Service Enablement Services (SES) predicts the need for this type of partnership. Such moves are set to drive the M2M market forward, gaining new value from M2M deployments by speeding up new service revenues, improving operational efficiencies, enhancing customer service and driving cost savings in real time.”
KORE PRiSMPro is a business management platform for controlling all aspects of a connected device’s lifecycle, from network usage and billing to activation/deactivation, troubleshooting and even determining its geographic location. With PRiSMPro, organizations can control costs and optimize M2M services delivery, says KORE Telematics.
“KORE’s partnership with ILS enables enterprise organizations to start small with their investment in M2M, with the option to scale the deployment as they begin to realize the benefits of the technology,” said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO, KORE.
ILS Technology’s deviceWISE M2M application platform links any M2M-enabled device to any enterprise application, enabling real-time information transfer, transaction logging and bi-directional control. Organizations rely on deviceWISE to decrease installation and maintenance costs and make business decisions based on real-time data that helps streamline operations and meet compliance standards.
