Mobile assets is an improvement of the Locster Fleet platform. Locster devices can have an autonomy up to 7 years with no change of batteries according to the chosen configuration. Locster has a proven project management expertise to deploy its technology on all size of assets fleets, from a few units up to more than 10 000 units. Indeed each project is managed by a team of 2 persons, a commercial engineer and a technician. They follow a standardized project management process, the “PMP” ie the Locster “project management process”. Locster is also able to handle pan-european projects in coordination with other Viasat Subsidiaries. Today, thanks to Locster technology, many companies manage their containers, tools, trailers, tanks, pallets, music speakers and many other types of mobile assets!
