Press Release | Essen, September 10th 2020
The Essen-based software developer DextraData will in future rely on the real-time tracking technology of the Finnish manufacturer Quuppa for its Dex7 IoT platform. Quuppa was recognized as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global, at the beginning of the year. The intelligent tracking system provides the DextraData Dex7 IoT platform with more flexibility, transparency and real-time tracking data with centimeter-precision.
Whether in the healthcare, construction or retail sectors, DextraData's proprietary Dex7 IoT platform offers a flexible IoT solution that enables structured data exchange within and between systems, devices and any other information sources. The IoT solution localizes and visualizes existing machines and other assets as well as sensor data generated in real time. The information obtained in this way creates transparency in the device landscape, supports controlling and the cost-efficient use of resources. In this way, the data can be used for result-oriented investment planning.
Quuppa: Named a Visionary by Gartner
Founded in 2012 as a spin-off of the Nokia Research Center, Quuppa has been combining high-quality Bluetooth positioning technology to accurately locate assets and people. At the beginning of 2020, Quuppa was positioned as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global.*
Dex7 - more flexible than ever
The German-Finnish IoT cooperation offers many synergies: the use of Dex7 will be much more scalable, flexible and transparent. Dex7 pilot projects can be realized just as quickly as large projects at many locations. »We are very pleased that with Quuppa, we have found a partner who convinced us above all with the quality of its algorithms and the open design of its solution. These are exactly the attributes that make Dex7 the perfect IoT solution for our customers,« says Thomas Ulrich, Director Software & Business Applications at DextraData.
