HERE and Wipro, a leading global information technology, consulting and business process company, have announced a new partnership.
As a part of the joint venture, Wipro and HERE will develop solutions using asset tracking to support industries such as logistics and supply chain, smart-metering and analytics, field workforce management and private mapping-as-as-service for both indoor and outdoor use.
With a focus on real-time asset tracking, the companies will use an IoT-based smart metering solution to support customers in the areas of energy consumption and asset management.
In addition, the HERE mapping-as-a-service solution will help brands create private maps and manage autonomous vehicle fleets more efficiently. Maps can support drivers by providing detailed information about routes and route time, speed, fuel consumption and hazardous conditions.
By integrating HERE Tracking into Wipro's solutions, their customers can monitor and track assets, field engineers and gain greater visibility into the supply chain in real-time, both indoor and outdoor, in addition to accessing analytics to improve operational efficiency.
“We are happy to be partnering with HERE Technologies to co-develop customized solutions... We are excited about the future of this partnership and the potential it offers in the journey towards an autonomous world," concluded Sarat Chand, Country Head and Managing Director, Benelux, Wipro Limited.
