OnAsset Intelligence Inc., a vendor of machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless systems for asset tracking, sensing and control, has created the latest version of its Vision Software Platform. Offered through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, Vision provides shippers with round-the-clock visibility to the location and condition of high-value assets in the supply chain. It features intuitive mapping capabilities with custom data overlays, which visualize real-time status and location, as well as the status history, of any high-value asset being tracked by OnAsset's Sentry devices. Shippers and third-party logistics providers use Vision to monitor and analyze data sent from Sentry devices in the field. The tool also helps in the management of response plans in the event of a theft or temperature alert during transit. New functionality in the update include features to help establish threshold limits for temperature, pressure, humidity, light, motion, shock and vibration; create virtual perimeter geo-fences to track cargo from origin to destination; customize alert notifications via e-mail, SMS or electronic data interchange; incorporate third-party data feeds, and integrate Vision data directly into the enterprise resource planning systems of shippers, manufacturers, distribution centers and retail outlets.
