ROCHELLE PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it has launched ORBCOMMmobile, which offers mobile apps for ORBCOMM's state-of-the-art M2M and IoT applications as well as the ORBCOMMconnect subscriber management portal. ORBCOMM's robust mobile apps run on both iOS and Android devices to facilitate ubiquitous, easy access to ORBCOMM solutions and technology.
The first in a series of ORBCOMMmobile apps is ORBCOMM's ReeferTrak® cold chain monitoring solution, which allows customers to monitor and control refrigerated assets in real-time from their mobile devices. ReeferTrak's mobile app significantly improves fleet management and efficient route planning by enabling customers to view the location of their refrigerated assets and run pre-defined reports. Customers can also access detailed status and maintenance reports, including dynamic temperature graphs, to monitor an asset's temperature and engine performance and maintain regulatory compliance, for maximum visibility anytime, anywhere.
ORBCOMM has also developed a mobile app for the ORBCOMMconnect service, which enables subscriber management on the go. This convenient, easy-to-use mobile app allows ORBCOMM customers to quickly monitor status, activate, suspend or deactivate a subscriber, change a price plan and access a snapshot view of device activity from their mobile devices for ORBCOMM's three satellite and seven Tier One cellular networks .
"Product innovation is a key contributor to ORBCOMM's success. We are pleased to release mobile apps for our cold chain transportation and subscriber management services, which further demonstrates our commitment to technological advancement and making it easier for our customers to do business with ORBCOMM remotely outside of the traditional office environment," said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM's Chief Executive Officer. "ORBCOMM's expansion into the mobile app market is an exciting next step in solidifying our position as a leader in the global M2M industry."
