Managed IoT Connectivity Shortens Time to Market and Increases Profitability for PodsystemM2M Partners
San Francisco, USA 31 August 2016 – PodsystemM2M, the expert in connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the launch of the Podsystem White Label Solution, including a full-service platform, white label SIM cards, and a wide range of global connectivity products and services. The solution suite enables IoT hardware and software manufacturers to brand and market a complete connectivity service as part of their offering.
The Podsystem White Label Solution gives OEMs and software manufacturers complete control over IoT connectivity. This enables them to own and enhance reseller and distributor relationships, launch additional value-added services, and generate long-term recurring revenue streams. Companies can then compete on a level playing field with OEMs offering a proprietary connectivity solution, without the upfront investment normally required to integrate with individual carrier networks or develop their own connectivity platform.
Based on its highly resilient connectivity service, the Podsystem White Label Solution features a range of products catering to a wide array of data and coverage requirements for all verticals within the IoT industry. The service includes both multi-network and multi-IMSI SIMs, which provide additional backup and future-proofing. Device connectivity can be remotely managed via an intuitive platform that can be fully customized to a partner’s business. Features include dashboards that can be branded with the partner’s logo and corporate identity, a complete billing and reporting module, and 24-hour first-line support service.
“Our White Label Solution has been designed to give our partners an immediate competitive advantage in the IoT space,” said Sam Colley, CEO of Podsystem. “The launch of the solution responds to a recent trend in the industry whereby hardware and software manufacturers are looking to own long-term customer relationships and generate ongoing revenue by including connectivity as part of their offering. Choosing the Podsystem White Label Solution allows them to do this quickly and effectively, without having to dedicate time and resources to developing a proprietary solution.”
The newly-launched suite of products forms part of the Podsystem Partner Community (PPC), which offers flexible options for both IoT hardware and software manufacturers to be more competitive, profitable, and quicker to market. The PPC allows partners to choose from three different paths, according to their business model, and gives them the flexibility to determine the level of control they wish to have over the connectivity, which can be modified as their business evolves.
The Podsystem White Label Solution will be presented on the Podsystem booth 5650 at CTIA Super Mobility, Las Vegas (September 7-9, 2016).
