SpotSee, provider of shock and vibration monitoring through low-cost connectivity and data offerings, announced Tuesday that it is increasing visibility into the supply chain for the logistics market by delivering real-time, critical shock and temperature indicators through its brands SpotBot and ShockWatch.
SpotSee has a variety of indicators and recorders – including SpotBot Cellular, SpotBot BLE and ShockWatch 2 – that give users much needed insight into how their products are being handled during shipping.
SpotSee developed a low-cost, connected, ecosystem that includes its own mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) that delivers data from devices anywhere in the world to customers’ fingertips. SpotSee devices monitor shock, vibration, temperature and other environmental conditions through its brands such as ShockWatch, ShockLog, SpotBot, OpsWatch and WarmMark. The company has a global network of over 300 sales and technical service partners in 62 countries. SpotSee is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with operations in Brazil, Netherlands, United Kingdom, China, Mexico and Graham, Texas.
Depending on the product, SpotSee’s customers can use temperature, vibration, impact or tilt monitors, most of which can be seen in real time.
SpotBot Cellular is a standalone device that delivers impact monitoring with x, y, z direction (tri-axial) and live tracking through SpotSee’s own cellular network. This enables users to visualize and access their data in the cloud from any web-based device.
Likewise, SpotBot BLE makes the supply chain transparent by measuring and recording temperature, humidity, tilt and shock. Each indicator is individually configured and any violation of the set threshold is easily traceable throughout the entire supply chain, giving users peace of mind.
In addition to SpotBot Cellular and SpotBot BLE, the company provides single use devices that determine if fragile products have been dropped during transit or storage.
ShockWatch 2 impact indicators turn bright red when an impact beyond a certain threshold has occurred, and the mere sight of them on packages discourages handlers from mishandling the product.
“An average shipment is handled 10 times before it reaches its destination,” said Angela Kerr, vice president of product portfolio & project management, SpotSee. “SpotSee adds visibility to the supply chain by connecting users with their assets through our connected solutions and indicators that inform them when products are mishandled.”
