October 1, 2018

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the leading provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced general release of AirLink® Management Service – Advanced Reporting and Analytics (ALMS ARA). The new features enable organizations to manage their vehicle fleets using Sierra Wireless’ industry-leading AirLink gateways, routers and cloud-based management platform by providing a deeper level of actionable insight and analytics into vehicle use, driver behavior and fleet maintenance.

ALMS ARA offers the same core device configuration, over-the-air (OTA) software updates and monitoring capabilities as ALMS but adds a powerful reporting and analytics engine and pre-defined reports to provide users with actionable business data. The first release of ALMS ARA includes reports that help managers of small-to-medium sized fleets gain insight into their vehicle fleet operations, including vehicle stops and trips, driver behavior, speeding and harsh acceleration incidents, and vehicle engine faults for proactive maintenance.

“Public safety, utilities and field service organizations are looking for a simple platform to collect actionable data from their fleets to transform and optimize operations,” said Tom Mueller, Vice President Product Line Management, Enterprise Solutions, Sierra Wireless. “With the addition of advanced reporting and analytics, our customers can use their trusted AirLink networking solution to provide business insights in addition to secure, managed LTE connectivity.”

Customers using supported AirLink devices, such as the AirLink MP70 with vehicle diagnostic interface (OBD-II/J1939), can use ALMS ARA to get cloud-based access to rich vehicle telemetry data through powerful APIs.

Sierra Wireless will demonstrate ALMS ARA at the upcoming International Association for Chiefs of Police (IACP) event, October 6-9, in booth #421.
