Technological imperatives for the future of the sharing economy
Whether you are in the business of owning and renting hard assets or creating the tools that make that business more accessible to future players, satellite-enabled technology is almost inevitably going to be part of your product suite. If we assume the rental car ecosystem is one that will undergo massive changes with the advent of autonomous cars, we identify a market ripe with opportunity for innovation, from fleet management to asset tracking, and even as far as remote asset control. GSE is poised to help your organization transition gradually to the new landscape, investing in technology changes as they become necessary. This critical timing equation will help determine the strength and positioning of each company in the industry, and partnering with GSE will be an important first step in planning that shift and being prepared to execute.
The GSE technology suite for application developers offers a robust asset tracking and management system that can be licensed and customized to work within your custom UI. Because we have already established a product that is relatively device-agnostic, developing an application with asset management powered by GSatTrack allows you to focus on the core competencies of your product and leverage an asset with an established track record of success. This solution will allow you to remain nimble and decentralize risk, making you faster to market and ready to compete with other asset-on-demand juggernauts like Uber.
When building the technology set that is best for your operation, GSE’s team of engineers has the ability to work with your existing equipment, upgrading only as necessary, in the interest of your ROI goals.We are also recognized as magnificent problem solvers, and would welcome the opportunity to help you work through a solution to any puzzle that you’re trying to solve.
L-band satellite transmission capabilities vary across different industries and sectors within those industries, but are most commonly geared toward solutions involving geo-tracking or sensory reporting at regular intervals. Because L-band technology operates at the lower end of the frequency spectrum, these smaller data packets travel more efficiently, allowing for real-time transmission and globally-supported satellite coverage.
Satellite technology is among the few equipment and facilities categories that gets constant attention, and the reasons for that are manifold. Primarily, it is quite normal for satellite technologies to have strong ROI, often because they can automate systems and processes that otherwise require extensive man hours and maintenance of existing equipment currently employed to perform the task. These cost savings add up quickly, and can easily justify the budget decision in a matter of a few short years.
Internet Of Things Creates Actionable Data
Perhaps impossible to ignore is everyone’s increasing obsession with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and how they can apply to one’s commercial sector, even in the most fringe of capacities. While it is certain that a large amount of the advancements in technology can have measurable and significant effects on efficiency, accountability, and reliability, it is also eventually going to be the case that a number of these “must-have innovations” will become decorative bells and whistles that fail to contribute sufficient return on investment. Making smart decisions about how to invest in these new technologies is critically important, especially in a sector like Transportation software, where margins are debilitatingly thin already.
Leverage Our Expertise For Your Business Growth
GSE’s team of engineers and solution architects are perfectly prepared to assist in the creation of a technology set that actually meets your individual needs by amalgamating only the tools that help you achieve the goals you have for improvement of processes and output. While GSE has the ability to work with all of the available bells and whistles mentioned above, we know that less is almost always more when it comes to business objectives, and we know how to get from your desired outcome to a lean solution set specifically designed to achieve that goal. GSE engineers also emphasize ease of use, integration with existing equipment and technology whenever possible, and streamlined, replicable implementations, with support.
Making smart decisions about which of these technologies is best for your operation can be extraordinarily difficult, especially because of the influx of availability, and the pressure to make allotments only for those enhancements that will have strong ROI. As a technology partner, GSE will work directly with you to outline the opportunities available to achieve your goals, and we always emphasize the use of existing equipment wherever possible, as the majority of our solutions integrate with technology that has been on the market for quite some time.
