Numerex Expands Its Line of Products and Services to Serve the Global Logistics Market
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke in his remarks at the Supply Chain Infrastructure Competitiveness Conference in May 2009 in Washington, D.C. defined the challenges of the new supply chain environment, which Numerex services help meet: "We need to find new methods to move products more efficiently if we are to keep pace with the rest of the world. That means viewing the relationship between trade and transportation more broadly, in interconnected and interrelated ways that are much more complex. Old solutions are not enough. Supply chains today are being changed dramatically by forces that go beyond traditional transportation remedies. At every level of a supply chain, one sees more advanced information technology applications, more sophisticated equipment, more integrated business processes."
As the world economy is getting tightly integrated, logistics and supply chain management's role in businesses' value creation cannot be overstated. Asset tracking, as a stand-alone service, is no longer sufficient. Data gathering and analysis are expected to provide critical pieces of information necessary to efficient management. Information technology is now an inherent component of any logistics and supply chain infrastructure. With its advanced services, Numerex provides the tools to optimize the flow of products and activities, which constitute the modern-day supply chain.
"A 'flat world' requires an intricate web of connections and real-time interactions to allow optimal decision-making," said Stratton J. Nicolaides, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Numerex. "Our suite of products and services specifically tailored to the logistics market facilitates this global management through smart remote monitoring and control of assets regardless of their geographic location. Hosted in a secure environment, they aim at becoming a critical component of our clients' informational infrastructure."
