Vehicle and Asset Tracking company Smart Asset Manager (SAM) www.smartassetmanager.co.uk specialise in vehicle and fleet management. With 20 years’ experience in telematics and creating vehicle tracking software, SAM aim to help businesses easily and fully utilise their fleet. Designed to easily monitor, manage or control the costs of running a fleet of vehicles with a user-friendly solution that present all the information needed at the click of a button.
With growth continuing on a considerable scale the SAM commercial and technical leadership team considered their options for either continuing to develop and grow their own infrastructure world-wide, or to look for an alternative solution to the challenge of taking on tens of thousands of new vehicle and tracking connections over a 12-18 month period.
SAM decided to partner with Asset Fusion and using the Asset Fusion Platform were able to quickly pilot and prove the functionality and performance of the platform. With support already included in the platform for all vehicle tracking devices used by SAM clients it was a simple transition supported the whole way by the highly experienced Asset Fusion technical team.
The real value add came when a client of SAM asked about incorporating tracking or non-powered mobile assets. This was something the SAM solution previously could not do and certainly not at the scale necessary (20-30,000 connections). Asset Fusion already had support in the platform for a specialised tracking device known as the ‘Oyster’ from Digital Matter and with this support SAM were able to pilot and demonstrate the units working in the SAM application within a matter of weeks enabling them to beat strong competition and win the customers order for a global solution.
