BeWhere and Assured Telematics Launch First of Its Kind Forklift Tracking and Management with Hiab Integration
TORONTO, ON. January 17 2023 – BeWhere (TSX-V: BEW, OTCQB: BEWFF) (“BeWhere” or the “Company”), a Mobile Internet of Things (M-IoT) company, is pleased to announce the launch of a first of its kind forklift tracking, monitoring and maintenance solution, and a new integration with its partner and reseller Assured Telematics (“ATI”) and Hiab for its Moffett truck-mounted forklifts.
ATI has been a BeWhere partner since 2016; and is an industry leader in providing enterprise fleets with custom telematics solutions and applications. Hiab is a leading provider of smart and sustainable load handling solutions.
By partnering with BeWhere and Geotab Inc., a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, Assured Telematics now provides the industry’s most accurate and detailed forklift insights and management solution for both indoor and outdoor tracking on electric and propane powered forklifts.
Fully integrated within the MyGeotab fleet management platform, the BeWhere Forklift telematics solution provides accurate tracking:
- Indoor tracking using WiFI and BLE micro-location
- Outdoor tracking using GPS GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS
The BeWhere Forklift telematics platform accepts external power from 6 to 55 Volts and has an internal battery which provides continuous tracking when external power is not available. The hardware measures 2.24 x 1.4 x 0.79 inches.
Assured Telematics has also become the first telematics provider to fully integrate Hiab’s HiConnect platform with the MyGeotab platform. For Moffett’s, which contains the onboard HiConnect platform, Assured Telematics is able to push the rich data available from HiConnect into MyGeotab. Data includes continuous location tracking, driving time, driving distance and safety elements, such as safety belt usage and machine in use with the side door open. Additionally, the engine data outputs include operational elements like engine speed, load and torque data with throttle position and fuel consumption.
According to Frank Pellitta, President of Assured Telematics, “The combination of using a manufacturer’s OEM telematics system such as Hiab’s HiConnect, and third party hardware, such as the BeWhere Forklift Platform, to bring common data points into a platform, such as MyGeotab, is a huge step in supporting fleets that are already using tractor and trailer platforms from Geotab.”
