Add asset tracking capabilities to your business in minutes.

Spotto asset search on a mobile phone

Search for assets

Simply type what you’re looking for and the results show you where and when it was last seen.

Spotto Search will become your best friend from the moment you get set up. Search comes standard with all Spotto subscription levels.

See what's at a location

See what’s at a location right now and what was last seen there.

Know immediately if the set of items you’re looking for are currently at a location so you can minimise your searching.

See event history

Inspect event histories for a richer picture of your assets and locations.

Tap into Spotto event histories to gain insights into how your assets, people and spaces are being utilised. We make it simple to import your historical data into your chosen Business Intelligence tools, spreadsheets or custom applications.

Setup event triggers

Automate workflows in your own solutions when something happens in a zone you’re monitoring.

Spotto provides an open API that enables your developers to integrate presence events into applications. Over the coming months we'll be user-configurable triggers that will enable anyone to set up these automations.

Mix and match

We started with the premise that businesses shouldn't have to over invest in technology — ours or anyone else’s. Instead, we give you options that you can mix and match because there isn’t a ‘right’ technology for all use cases.

Regardless of what mix of options you use to detect assets, your users will have the same, consistent Search experience. They don’t care what technology is being used, they just want to find stuff.

So here are the choices… each has its place, and they can be used together to deliver any number of solutions around your business. They’re all easy to set up and your Spotto subscription covers use of any or all of them. We hope you’ll be as excited as we are about the cost and effort-saving innovations that we’ve baked into almost every solution.
