Sprint, Ingram Micro, and myDevices have announced a collaboration to provide turnkey IoT solutions for a broad range of organizations, the companies said.
Ingram Micro´s North American resellers will now be able to offer their healthcare, hospitality, food service, retail, education and government customers a 30-day free trial of remote monitoring solutions for temperature/humidity monitoring and facility management.
IoT offerings can provide attractive recurring revenue streams for resellers. The LoRa-based solutions provided as a part of this collaboration are highly versatile, enabling resellers to install, configure and adapt solutions to unique, customer-specific requirements within minutes.
The commercial refrigeration solution provides hospitals, pharmacies, food processors, food distributors, meat packers and restaurant chains with the ability to automate temperature and humidity monitoring of their refrigeration systems to help them protect vaccines, food and other perishable items.
Most of these industries are highly regulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government health departments, or accreditation organizations such as The Joint Commission, and are required by law to log the temperature readings of their refrigeration. By automating the temperature monitoring process associated with manual logging organizations can save on labor expense and make regulatory compliance easier to maintain.
Ingram Micro´s reseller program is designed to optimize success for resellers. Once a reseller identifies a lead and registers the opportunity in the Ingram Micro portal, Ingram Micro assigns a dedicated IoT specialist to that reseller and opportunity.
Free trials include one gateway and five sensors to be installed at the end customer´s facility for 30 business days.
