Companies in industries, including transportation, oil and gas, and construction, will be able to remotely monitor their devices even in rural or remote locations now that end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider ROAMWORKS has partnered with connectivity experts Aeris, a pioneer and technology leader in the IoT industry.

ROAMWORKS provides a range of solutions that simplify remote asset monitoring and data management and deliver real-time information to any desktop or device, anywhere in the world. The partnership with Aeris allows ROAMWORKS to ensure that its products can depend on reliable and secure global connectivity.

ROAMWORKS’ pioneering IoT solutions are designed to help companies increase efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and increase visibility of their assets as they move from one destination to another. Aeris IoT cellular technology standards, such as GSM, CDMA and LTE, and its use of a carrier-agnostic network, combined with its expertise in the field, allows ROAMWORKS to expand its offerings worldwide.

Aeris initially will supply IoT connectivity via its Aeris® IoT Services platform and enable ROAMWORKS’ products in the Middle East before expanding the partnership across the globe. ROAMWORKS’ clients range from DHL, Dubai Electricity, Water Authority and National Petroleum Authority of Ghana, among others.

ROAMWORKS has three standardised products – ROAM Tank, which monitors the condition and movement of assets within fixed and mobile tanks, such as an oil tanker; ROAM Heavy Equipment, which monitors the location and performance of items such as generators, pumps and compressors used within construction; and ROAM Fleet Management, the company’s telematics solution.

The company also provides an award-winning Cargo Security solution using electronic seals and its proprietary ROAM platform that is currently used by Dubai Airports. It allows the airport and police to monitor duty-free cargo as it moves in and out of the airport, and be alerted if the packages are being unlocked. This allows airports to efficiently manage the whereabouts of cargo, while ensuring security is being adhered to throughout the transportation process. Also, this solution helps authorities prevent theft or fraud, as they can see whether products or items are tampered with or taken outside of duty-free zones.
