VExpress Distribution, an Australian-owned distributor of dynamic telecommunication, data and mobility solutions, has formed a new distribution agreement with Australian IoT start-up, Leash It.

Leash It is building “the most connected and sophisticated Bluetooth low energy (BLE) tracking and sensor system in the world,” according to the press release.

The company has both a consumer (Leash It) and business product (LeashView) to create a fully connected ecosystem they call a ‘Community of Things'.

LeashView has been developed for businesses on the back of the success of the consumer product bringing the solution to tracking assets around hospitals, worksites, car yards and other businesses across multiple floor levels and infrastructures.

Although asset tracking is important, having the Geospatial data to compare year on year productivity and utilisation of an organisations assets has become even more important for companies wanting to improve their bottom line, as well as assisting to mitigate a number of OH-S and theft-related risks.

LeashView also has application in areas such as Aged Care where the movement of persons at risk can be monitored.

The RTLS can be worn by patients, tracking their movements and alerting family members/carers when they move outside of the home or deviate from their normal movement patterns.

“The management of Leash It is extremely excited to be partnering with VExpress,” says Leash It CEO Tony Lotzof.

“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 partners will now have the opportunity to offer their customers a solution in real time asset and sensor tracking.

“We are excited to bring this unique IoT solution to our channel. Leash It is a leader in the vast new IoT frontier of tracking technology,” says VExpress General Manager Curt Hensel.

“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.”
