Tata Communications will be enhancing W-Locate a Singapore-based Internet of Things (IoT) start-up.
W-Locate offers real-time information which is location based to enterprises based in, Singapore, Jakarta, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. Now the company is looking to expand their works across countries like South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan and other Asian countries by coupling with Tata Communications’ IoT and private cloud computing capabilities.
Currently, the first customers using Tata Communications MOVE and IZO Private Cloud is LafargeHolcim Malaysia, part of the global LafargeHolcim Group- a leading manufacturer of building materials with a presence in 80 countries.
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications said, “IoT start-ups that are looking for swift global expansion need to capture, move and manage information seamlessly, reliably and securely worldwide. Through the ubiquitous nature of the Tata Communications MOVE™ platform, businesses like W-Locate are able to give their global customers the secure and seamless IoT experiences they expect – without making huge investments in their own infrastructure in new markets.”
Stevie Ooi, Founder, and CEO, W-Locate said “We’re a fast-moving start-up, and we want to work with like-minded businesses to accelerate our growth. The Tata Communications MOVE™ platform helps us do just that, and offer borderless connectivity to our customers in new markets. We estimate that working with a single global IoT partner like Tata Communications will help reduce our CapEx by 35% while giving us the agility we need to stay ahead in this constantly changing industry.”
