Alexandria, VA – Savi and SGS have jointly received Ventana Research’s distinguished 2015 Technology Leadership Award for Internet of Things (IoT) and Operational Intelligence. Presented annually, the award recognizes pioneering leaders and innovators that embrace technology to drive change and increase value for organizations worldwide.
Savi and SGS have been global partners for more than five years and are committed to helping complex global organizations meet the increasing demand for real-time visibility in supply chain operations with proven Industrial-IoT enabled solutions. SGS leverages Savi Insight™, a Saas analytics solution that processes massive amounts of machine-to-machine (M2M) data and turns it into actionable, easy-to-grasp analytics. The solution empowers global organizations to track critical variables like time, temperature and location. Savi’s complete end-to-end supply chain logistics solution gives SGS the real-time analytics and predictive modeling they need to increase productivity, reduce theft and tampering and improve efficiencies related to inventory management and shipment ETA. Ventana Research recognized the critical role Savi’s solutions play in delivering real-world, real-time data to help SGS protect and secure in-transit assets. Savi currently protects more than $17.5 billion dollars in commercial goods annually and serves more than 1,000 commercial clients.
“IoT enabled analytic applications are transforming the global supply chain as organizations continue to search for ways to process large amounts of data and turn it into actionable, operational intelligence,” said Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer of Ventana Research. “Congratulations to Savi who continues to demonstrate leadership in the marketplace by delivering innovative solutions for partners like SGS that delivers to its customers that combine best-in-class technology with experience and knowledge.”
