ORBCOMM wins company of the year for fleet telematics offerings

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Frost & Sullivan has awarded ORBCOMM Inc. with the 2018 North American Company of the year award for its recent analysis of the North American market for heavy equipment fleet telematics and management.

ORBCOMM, a provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, offers comprehensive heavy equipment solutions including ruggedized and purpose-built devices, efficient web applications, global multi-network connectivity, and predictive and diagnostic analytics tools.

These tools aim to provide fleet managers with insights that can aid in maximizing efficiency and profitability.

The company supports the complete heavy equipment value chain, from OEMs to dealers and fleet owners.

To accommodate the growing need in the heavy equipment industry for more data delivered in customized formats and at greater frequency, ORBCOMM has continued to enhance its FleetEdge web application to help stakeholders, from C-suite executives to fleet managers, improve business planning, asset utilization and profitability. ORBCOMM’s FleetEdge reports diagnostic information, such as fault codes and sensor alerts, location, engine hours, mileage, and maintenance alerts, for heavy equipment assets, many of which are in remote, difficult to reach locations, for visibility and control.

FleetEdge uses the ORBCOMM IoT stack to enable big data integration and robust analytics. The scalable application can retrieve data directly from ORBCOMM’s DeviceCloud, making it ORBCOMM’s first device-agnostic, cloud-based application. DeviceCloud supports ORBCOMM devices as well as third-party devices and facilitates the management of mixed fleets from one interface.

ORBCOMM supplements these technologies with customer support and service-level protocols to ensure deployments for fleets of all sizes.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents a Company of the Year award to the organization that demonstrates excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation in its field. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies, and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.
