An Impressive 24% of Location Companies Surveyed Now Offer Simultaneous Indoor and Outdoor Location Technologies

Of the 205 companies surveyed in ABI Research’s latest Location Technologies Supply Chain and Ecosystem Tracker, 24% of them are currently offering solutions covering both indoor and outdoor location services, according to ABI Research. The growing need for seamless indoor and outdoor integration and supply chain visibility is expected to force more companies at the lower layers of the technology supply chain to create more flexible technology offerings.

“As things stand, there is a hard line between the indoor and the outdoor technologies and services used for location use cases. Offering seamless tracking between these two environments raises the possibility of having unprecedented visibility into the supply chain, as any item can be tracked end-to-end between factories, warehouses, and retailers up to the point-of-sale,” remarked Henrique Rocha, Research Analyst. Some of the benefits from acquiring visibility into the supply chain include more efficient planning and less asset shrinkage, which quickly revert to business owners in the form of ROI. Read more

Other factors include new innovations in card form factors, such as metal cards, and powered payment cards that incorporate biometric sensor technology. The net effect is driving EMV payment card issuance from 3.18 billion in 2019 to over 3.75 billion by 2023, according to ABI Research.

Get Ready for Connected...Cattle?

When discussing the Internet of Things, most people think of connected factories, or smart homes, or even smart cities. However, another, somewhat unlikely industry is starting to embrace the potential of the IoT — agriculture.

That’s why, by 2024, more than 2 million farms and 36 million cattle will be connected, according to our new Agriculture’s Digital Transformation – AgTech and Farming application analysis report. Read more
