SmartSense by Digi, a division of Digi International, Minnetonka, Minn., partnered with Trimble, Sunnyvale, Calif., to integrate SmartSense’s continuous temperature monitoring to provide remote, real-time temperature data for Trimble’s data aggregation and supply chain analytics platform. With this integration, users will have access to data aggregation via a single analytics platform providing a unified display of information from varied sources across multiple applications and environments.
This collaboration establishes an end-to-end integration flow of data by placing temperature sensors and cellular gateways on fleets of vehicles to collect and transmit information, making real-time temperature analytics available in Trimble's freight portal for the first time.
"Our clients have the expectation that they will be able to view all of their cold chain data through a single pane of glass, and we realized that we weren't able to meet that expectation without supplying temperature data," says Joe DeBoth, senior vice president and general manager, Trimble Transportation Visibility. "With SmartSense by Digi's cold chain monitoring solution and expertise, we were able to easily pull reliable data into our aggregation platform to offer real-time analysis and actionable insights."
"We collaborated with Trimble to create real-time shipment visibility that offers rich temperature control tracking and predictive analytics to perishable goods shippers and transportation providers," says Kevin Riley, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Digi International. "This enterprise integration effort with Trimble allows us to expand the SmartSense brand by offering our temperature monitoring expertise to a major player in the supply chain data and analytics space."
