Use cases

Asset Tracking

Asset Tracking - Track assets as they move within a warehouse, workplace or throughout the entire supply chain to improve overall operations. Adding location helps increase efficiency with cost-lowering real-time location information. We’ll help you track, filter, and add context to the location data from your assets for use in predictive analytics, supply chain optimization, or location-based market research to help you apply those learnings to your business.

Wearables

Wearables - Locate and track wearable devices accurately anywhere in the world.  From fitness bands to smart watches, mPERS (mobile personal emergency response) lanyards to wearable cameras, Skyhook enables accurate location for nearly all wearable use cases. 

Connected Car

Connected Car - Enhance the location capabilities for connected car devices to improve accuracy in consumer features including effectively locating cars indoors and in dense urban environments, improving on-board diagnostics through location data enrichment, and improving distance calculations trips from A to B using hybrid positioning.

Point of Sale Devices

Point of Sale Devices - Add accurate location to Point of Sale devices to track asset distribution, global support, and start-up UI optimizations. For example, location features provide the ability to correctly set default language, select the correct local payment service/fulfillment partner, and set time zones as well as other localization options based on place.

Risk Assessment/Usage-Based Insurance

Risk Assessment/Usage-Based Insurance - Add hybrid positioning capabilities into the hardware or OBD-II dongles used by insurance companies to allow customers to pay for insurance based on the actual distance traveled and capture other information about the safety of the car or signs of an accident based on the error codes reported to the dongle. 

Connected/Smart Appliances

Connected/Smart Appliances - Know when and where devices like smart TVs or connected appliances are after they have left the warehouse or their retail locations. Utilize location data enrichment for diagnostics reporting to solve and inform operational, warranty, or support problems and infrastructure. For interactive appliances, provide enhanced services (e.g. local weather, news, amber alerts, marketing) using accurate location information.
