Overview

GPSengine offers a program for vendors and manufacturers of IoT devices, sensors, GNSS devices and trackers, to partner with GPSengine and bring support for their range of devices to the GPSengine platform. This is a mutually beneficial program that helps vendors gain exposure to the existing and growing customer base of GPSengine, and to be considered for large scale projects utilising GPSengine’s platform and services. Additionally vendors gain exposure to the GPSengine reseller network. GPSengine benefits by continuing to add more available device options to Free Vehicle Tracking and giving consumers more choice in available device options. GPSengine benefits by continuing to add support for new devices into its platform, giving customers greater choice in solutions and available device options.

What is Free Vehicle Tracking

GPSengine’s Platform Connect is a hosted platform and service for receiving, processing and storing of information from GNSS and IoT’s, devices, sensors, applications and third party services. Organisation’s access their stored data via an API, Platform Connect provides a hosted solution that enables organisations to quickly implement and use for their desired purpose. Platform Connect is scalable and redundant to meet growing needs. As a hosted solution, organisations can concentrate on collecting and using their data without having the infrastructure cost, technical and administrative overhead associated with designing, building and maintaining a large platform suited for this purpose.

Vendor involvement

There are a few things required from vendors to assist with this process:

  • Provide protocol documentation for the device(s), to assist GPSengine’s development team in adding support into its platform. GPSengine designs its platform receivers to be highly scalable and efficient, to match each protocol and device communication needs.
  • Sample messages that are expected to be sent from a device to the platform.
  • Data from a device to our test platform to assist and confirm the new receivers operate and successfully support the new protocol as expected.
  • Depending on the capability of the device(s), device message handling through to over the air device configuration can be supported.
  • Make available (at a preferred location of the vendor) one of each device to use for testing with the GPSengine platform. GPSengine does not need to have the device in their office, but a real device needs to be tested to be considered fully supported and working with the GPSengine platform and its services.

Costs

There are no costs for the vendor to signup and be involved in the partner program and GPSengine takes on full in-house development costs to design and add support for the device(s) into its platform.

What next?

After GPSengine has finished adding support for the vendor’s device(s), GPSengine will then proceed with the next steps in officially supporting and announcing the partnership by:

  • Including the vendor in the official supported partner list.
  • Providing the vendor’s contact information for sales and information inquiries relating to their product range.
  • Announcing in a press release that the vendor is now an official partner through GPSengine’s media channels.
