Company: SpotSee

Technology Snapshot: SpotSee is increasing visibility into the supply chain for the logistics market by delivering real-time, critical shock and temperature indicators through its leading brand SpotBot.

“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.”  

SpotSee has a wide variety of indicators and recorders — including SpotBot Cellular and SpotBot BLE — that give users much needed insight into how their products are being handled during shipping. 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.
