BlackBerry Radar Partnership Annoucement
TransReport Services Inc Partners With BlackBerry
TransReport Services is pleased to announce that they have partnered with BlackBerry to sell its innovative, end-to-end asset tracking solution, BlackBerry Radar. TransReport Services will sell both BlackBerry’s Radar-L and Radar-M devices.
BlackBerry Radar-L, measuring at 6.8” x 4.6” x 2” and with up to 6 years of battery life, comes with location, door open-close and motion detection sensors and is designed for rapid installation on flatbeds, chassis, containers, heavy machinery, and other valuable transportation or non-powered equipment assets.
Designed for trailers and containers, BlackBerry Radar-M with up to 8 years of battery life, allows customers to get near real-time information on cargo load status to remain up-to-date on the available cargo carrying capacity of their fleet. GPS, motion detection and environmental (temperature, humidity, pressure) sensors allow a customer to stay on top of where their assets are and the environmental conditions inside the trailer. In addition, customers can monitor when the doors of their asset have been opened or closed to track loading and unloading of freight, or theft.
For both Radar-M and Radar-L, customers can use a simple on-line dashboard to create customer geofences with embedded rules; when rules are violated, events are triggered to notify customers of potential theft or unwanted use of equipment.
By partnering with BlackBerry Radar, TransReport Services expands their customers access to a comprehensive portfolio of fleet management products to help solve their complex business challenges with technology.
