BlackBerry Radar is an innovative, easy-to-install, asset monitoring solution that provides information such as location, motion, mileage, temperature, humidity, door open/close status, and cargo status on an intuitive on-line dashboard. It collects significantly more data than conventional GPS-based track and trace solutions and uses this information to build a 360-degree visualization of a customer's assets. All data is transmitted and stored securely on a cloud platform, which maintains the privacy of user information at all times.
