In the world of geo tracking, providing customers with realtime data on where their car, package or even container is, remains to be the one of the most critical business components.
Unidev, a GPS solutions provider, was working on a platform to feed data from thousands of different sensors to web and mobile apps- in realtime.
“We knew that we needed to have a full realtime data platform. But, without the resources required to accomplish such a massive undertaking, we needed to look for other solutions.”
The Core Issue:
With customers demanding a realtime application to track where their vehicles were, the Unidev team knew they had to develop an in-house platform to replace their current solution. They needed a blazing fast realtime tracking system that was able to scale with them as they grew.
After months of development time wrestling between countless different frameworks and platforms, Unidev realised that crafting their own realtime platform simply didn’t make sense. Not only did the extended development time lose them valuable customers, but the marriage of so many frameworks, platforms and systems starting becoming a maintenance nightmare.
