Telecommunications and mobility solutions distributor VExpress Distribution has signed a deal with Australian Internet of Things (IoT) start-up, Leash It.
Based in Victoria, the start-up was established in late 2014 by Jorian Ross and Tony Lotzof.
One of Leash It's solution is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tracking and sensor system, which can either help the end-user to track their pet or luggage to large hospitals with thousands of patients and devices.
The solution was initially focused on end-users, but after a successful beginning the company decided to invest in a corporate solution in April 2017.
"We are excited to bring this unique IoT solution to our channel," VExpress general manager Curt Hensel said.
"Leash It is a leader in the vast new IoT frontier of tracking technology. The potential applications are immense and growing every day. With Least It, we intend to establish VExpress as the go-to distributor of advanced tracking solutions."
Leash It devices can be used in hospitals, worksites, car yards and other businesses in order to monitor across multiple floor levels and infrastructures.
According to Leash It, it is also important to have the geospatial data to compare year-on-year productivity and utilisation of an organisations' assets.
“The management of Leash It are extremely excited to be partnering with VExpress," Leash It CEO Tony Lotzof said. "Working with VExpress will enable Leash It to expand its national coverage so that every connected Leash It user will benefit from the amazing growth this relationship will bring into a number of different verticals."
VExpress currently works with Alcatel-Lucent, AudioCodes, Avaya, BlueJeans, Konference, MessageMe, Netgear, Northbridge Secure, Premier Contact Point, Sennheiser and StarLeaf.
