LocationSmart: Transforming the Logistics Industry

The introduction of LocationSmart’s platform that offers the largest location as a service on the planet would benefit the logistics industry tremendously. The company claims that its platform can connect to more than 17 billion devices, using different access points like Wi-FI, cell sites, and IP addresses. Today, the logistics industry is facing a lot of issues because of delayed deliveries, or products being sent to the wrong address. However, LocationSmart assured the logistics sector that everything will change once they decided to level-up their operations and integrate the services offered by LocationSmart.


What are the benefits of using LocationSmart?



For businesses in the logistics sector, using LocationSmart is advantageous. The following information demonstrates how their platform will help a lot of companies in the logistics sector.


Identifying the assets that are going off-route



This is a very common problem for logistics companies – the assets that they need to deliver are going off-route, and it is difficult to locate where it is once it slips off their radar. With LocationSmart, any assets can be located wherever it is anywhere in the world. This will prevent the loss of profit from untoward incidents, and the company can explain thoroughly why the delivery was delayed.


Locating an asset that has broken down



Delivery trucks, vans, ships, and planes are considered as an asset of a logistics company. Before the introduction of LocationSmart, it would be difficult to find out what happened to these assets once they got off the signal monitored by the logistics company. However, with the current platform offered by LocationSmart to logistics firms, it will be easier for them to identify the location of an asset that has broken down, and it will be easier for them to fix and maintain it.


Locating the devices used by an employee



LocationSmart makes it easier for logistics companies to track down their employees who use any device that is connected to the internet. This would enable the companies to verify if the employee is in the right direction if they will be delivering a package. This would also conserve their time on the road, as the logistics company can send them real-time information about their destination even if they are driving on the road.


Better communication



LocationSmart also makes it possible for companies to communicate effectively with their employees. The strong communication signals offered by the company will enable the workers to call the headquarters whenever they need to. Assignment changes can also be relayed effectively with LocationSmart in place.


Aside from the benefits offered to logistics companies, LocationSmart is also capable of geotargeting and geofencing. This changes the playing field for many companies, and it introduces new benefits for those who are using the LocationSmart platform. Geotargeting refers to the ability of the platform to target certain devices in a given area. Using these services will enable companies to advertise more efficiently. Geofencing, on the other hand, will identify the movement of the customers, providing real-time information to companies where they are.

LocationSmart Protects Online Transaction While Also Enabling Proactive Business Tactics

Consider the fact that data piracy is costing the U.S. advertising and media sector more than $8 billion a year in lost revenue, according to RIAA Research. And that’s just one industry. The music industry loses an estimated $12.5 billion annually. The latter figure alone translates to more than 70,000 lost jobs.


But any business – including small businesses – can fall prey to data hackers who steal proprietary information and can cause customers to lose confidence in a business because they fear they are not working with a secure system.


That’s why LocationSmart is more important than ever today. LocationSmart is a California-based Location as a Service (LaaS) provider that has been protecting its clients since the mid-1990s.


Proactive Business Applications


But beyond saving its clients billions of dollars by providing secure online business activity and transactions, LocationSmart also offers the proactive benefit of enabling its users to increase their profits and customer base.


Thousands of businesses, large and small, are discovering the benefits IP geolocation can add to their operating models. There are several key areas where IP geolocation provided by LocationSmart helps owners and managers run better businesses.


One example is seamless compliance with local rules, laws and regulations. The ability to leverage LaaS and IP geolocation has been a tremendous boon to the gaming industry, for example. Activities, such as playing the lottery or participating in online games, requires that each user pay taxes or comply with rules applying to their purchases specific to the state where they live. LocationSmart makes it easy to verify the location of millions of game players instantly.


Another capability provided by LaaS and IP geolocation is geo-specific advertising using real-time communication. LocationSmart’s powerful and proprietary platform obtains real-time information about where customers are physically located when they use a mobile app or when connected using other internet-based devices. This enables a business to send push notifications to customers, or makes possible a personal phone call from your staff.


Real-time communication enables a business to alert subscribed customers to sales. A discount coupon can be sent online to trigger sales. There are a number of ways to prompt customers into action when they otherwise may not be engaged with your business.


LocationSmart is headquartered in Carlsbad, California, and began operations in 1995. As internet technology advanced and consumers became increasingly internet savvy, the company grew rapidly as demand increased for platforms that could conduct business in the cyber world with a high degree of security and ease of use.


LocationSmart also offers geo-mapping and cloud location services. Industry observers cite LocationSmart as among the easiest and most comprehensive cross-carrier platform for context-aware application development. That includes local and hyperlocal location capability. Among its services are call centers, apps for transportation businesses, secure financial transaction, proximity marketing and various core enterprise functions.
