Spotto’s indoor real-time asset location system is already setting the benchmark for simplicity of installation and cost effectiveness of finding equipment within a workplace.
With the Spotto API you can now create your own applications that can access asset movement events with REST API calls. For example, perform an action when a piece of equipment arrives in a monitored room. You can also search for where an asset is right now, and retrieve an inventory of what assets are currently at a location. Full histories of where an asset has been and what’s been at a location when are also available.
The API, together with the simplicity of setting up a Spotto sensing network, enable location-aware applications to be created much more readily than ever before. When combined with a low-code app development platform such as Spotto partner OneBlink’s Low-code Suite even non-developers can create and deploy location-aware applications very quickly
The power of the Spotto API was able to be demonstrated immediately. Within a week of having early access to the Spotto APIs, OneBlink created two working pilots for customers — both of which have great commercial potential.
The first pilot enables real-time tracking of packages both inside buildings and in transit — with notifications when a package goes missing from a collection.
The second provides instant access to the correct manuals, cheat sheets and videos for any piece of equipment that’s currently present in a hospital Operating Theatre This ensures that exactly the right information is available without the need for search or worrying about whether you’ve identified exactly the right manual for a specific version of a piece of equipment.
These solutions were made possible by accessing Spotto’s real-time location data within simple, purpose-built apps. The possibilities are endless.
