IoT and M2M specialist KORE has launched a managed services solution for Critical Asset Management (CAM), utilising the Visilion asset tracking platform from Sony Network Communications Europe. KORE’s solution is designed to introduce a new level of condition management, allowing companies in the medical instrumentation, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries to maintain real-time condition visibility of critical and high-value goods.

KORE is leveraging the IoT managed services expertise of recently acquired Integron to assist connected health and life sciences companies in the turnkey deployment of scalable asset management tools. 

Its new solution combines Sony’s advanced trackers, easy-to-use platform, robust APIs (capable of ERP integration) and reporting tools with KORE’s project management, kitting, logistics, connectivity and device management services. The result is a service designed to allow companies to deploy seamless monitoring solutions for critical and high-value assets.

“Passive monitoring has not been sufficient for the highly regulated nature of the connected health market and up to this point, active monitoring has been too fragmented, complicated, and costly,” commented Bryan Lubel, EVP of IoT Managed Services at KORE. “With our experience in IoT deployments and connected devices, we’re simplifying the process for our customers, while improving their risk mitigation and operational efficiency.”

The Sony hardware is designed to provide best-in-class low-energy IoT connectivity, and is equipped with the latest cellular and satellite connectivity to support real-time GPS positioning, as well as monitoring of temperature, shock, acceleration and tilt.

“Our focus on delivering powerful and effective IoT solutions is crystal clear. With the Visilion platform, we are able to unlock the potential of Critical Asset Management – a market that we anticipate will grow sharply in the coming months and years,” said Romil Bahl, President and CEO of KORE. “We feel confident that KORE, supported by Sony’s technology, is better positioned than anyone else to deliver impactful solutions that enable efficiencies in connected health and life sciences.”
