VSS is an emerging category that focuses on monitoring and managing the real-time condition, disposition, and location of human as well as valuable physical assets.
Omnilink's solutions use a combination of GPS, wireless network technologies, RFID, and situation-specific sensors to transmit information to a monitoring center using commercial, cellular networks, and then applying predefined supervision rules on a Web-based application.
"The key tenets of the VSS value proposition is to monitor human and physical assets without increasing manpower and to provide real-time visibility, verification, and interactive communications by leveraging location to monitor and manage mobile interests," said Frost & Sullivan Mobile & Wireless Program Director Brent Iadarola.
These solutions are finding increasing application in industries including criminal justice (offender monitoring), financial services (high value asset tracking), real estate (security system automation), construction (heavy asset productivity), healthcare (dementia patient safety), and personal monitoring (abduction prevention).
As location-based services continue to gain momentum in a variety of industries, the opportunity for VSS is unique. The prospects for VSS are poised for a period of impressive growth as organizations increasingly integrate VSS capabilities into their mission critical mobility tasks.
With industries insisting on device flexibility and an environment to efficiently manage and deliver a range of mobile solutions, Omnilink has designed an extremely efficient system that helps enterprises to tailor and deploy a full range of VSS solutions, depending on their individual mobility strategy.
"By enabling seamless access to VSS with a simple and device-agnostic architecture, Omnilink can provide a wide range of industries with valuable VSS tools to acquire remote data on any device through publicly available networks using a web-based application to access information and reports," noted Iadarola.
As mobile initiatives in the public sector and enterprise markets will increasingly be characterized by rapidly evolving technologies and industry standards, dynamic customer demands, and frequent product and service introductions, it will be critical for solution providers to improve performance, support, and reliability of offerings. Thus, success greatly relies on the ability to maintain flexibility, open structures that are adaptable to rapidly changing technologies, and industry challenges.
