Wipro, HERE Technologies to co-develop customized location-based, analytics solutions for customers globally
In a move towards creating a more autonomous world, the key areas of partnership are in location planning for smart metering and in field service management. HERE Tracking is expected to enable monitoring and tracking of supply chain, assets and field engineers on a real-time basis to build operational efficiencies.
Global information technology player Wipro Limited and HERE Technologies, a location data and technology platform, have recently announced that they are partnering to offer location-based services, to customers from energy and utilities, manufacturing, transport and logistics, telecom and automotive industry verticals.
As part of this announcement, Wipro and HERE will be jointly developing solutions in the areas of asset tracking, logistics, supply chain, smart-metering and analytics, field workforce management, and private mapping-as-a-service for indoor and outdoor real-time asset tracking.
An Internet of Things (IoT) based smart metering solution being developed by both companies, will provide better information to customers on energy consumption and asset management. The HERE mapping-as-a-service solution enables enterprises to build private maps in the field and manage their autonomous vehicles more efficiently, by providing information to their drivers on routing time, speed, fuel consumption and hazardous conditions.
