OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - CalAmp Corp. (
Each of the winners below turned to CalAmp to enable wireless data collection and communications capabilities that keep their customers connected to drive productivity, performance and safety gains in some very unique applications.
Gold Award Winner, Automotive: Carvoyant, Inc.
Carvoyant created a platform that uses M2M technology to connect vehicle operators to an automotive repair shop at the time maintenance is necessary. This improves vehicle upkeep and helps to ensure vehicle safety. CalAmp's mobile monitoring device gathers diagnostic information directly from the vehicle and transmits it wirelessly to the repair center. With this solution, repair shops can better address customers with targeted offers and vehicle owners can feel more confident about the operating condition of their vehicle.
Gold Award Winner, Remote Monitoring: Restaurant Technologies Inc.
To improve efficiency and quality in foodservice, Restaurant Technologies created a system for restaurants to monitor the delivery, storage, handling and disposal of frying oil. This is done remotely via a cellular-based data collection system. The solution also provides delivery drivers with smartphone access to store information, eliminating unnecessary truck movement, increasing supply chain efficiency and improving the overall food quality.
Silver Award Winner, Energy: Cartasite
Cartasite's technology uses telematics to capture driver behavior that can be analyzed to determine the probability of crash risk. The solution wirelessly transmits data on adverse driving maneuvers such as hard braking, unsafe cornering and speeding to backend systems where algorithms analyze each driver's performance. A system-generated scorecard is then transmitted to individuals to improve driving behavior, reduce fuel consumption and lower carbon emissions.
"These forward-thinking companies stand at the leading edge of technology adoption and innovation. CalAmp congratulates them on their vision and the superb award-winning M2M applications they have created. We are proud to have played a role in helping them develop the wireless communications capability that keeps their customers connected," said Justin Schmid, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for CalAmp.
