IoT firm Kore has announced the availability of its Critical Asset Monitoring (CAM) offering in AWS Marketplace.

CAM, powered by Visilion, enables businesses to visualise and mitigate the risks associated with global, multi-modal supply chain operations.

AWS Marketplace is a digital catalogue with thousands of software listings from ISVs that makes it easy to find, test, buy and deploy software and services that run on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The ability to procure CAM through AWS Marketplace makes it easier for manufacturers, freight forwarders and logistics organisations to mitigate risks, ensure quality and certify chain of custody.

“The complexity of deploying IoT has held businesses back for far too long, and this includes monitoring mission-critical assets across supply chains and cold chains the world over,” said Romil Bahl, CEO of Kore. “We are committed to driving innovation for our customers and launching CAM in the AWS Marketplace is another way we simplify the process of IoT adoption and deployment.”

CAM includes tracking devices with sensors and cellular communications, cloud analytics, and reporting tools as a service. Users have visibility into the conditions of the asset in transit and are immediately notified of events that can jeopardise the quality, integrity and security of the product, such as route anomalies, temperature deviation, shock and tilt.

Kore recently entered a merger agreement with Cerberus Telecom Acquisition, a special purpose acquisition company affiliated with Cerberus Capital Management. Upon completion of the transaction, which is expected mid-2021, the combined company expects to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
