SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. With more than 70,000 employees and more than 1,350 offices and laboratories around the world, they are recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. Savi has established a strategic exclusive alliance with SGS to provide the technology solution for their Omnis service offering. It uses the Savi Tracking as the technology “engine” to drive this solution, which will allow governments and other organizations around the world the ability to track assets and verify the real-time status of goods and materials with minute-by-minute updates if needed.
What was needed ⋅ SGS is active in many business arenas, including inspection and verification of goods in transit within national boundaries or across borders. To gain a competitive edge in its consignment verification and logistics security business, SGS sought to develop a new integrated logistics and tracking offering that it could add to its global services portfolio. A key requirement of the ground-breaking service was real-time asset-tracking and comprehensive journey monitoring. SGS believed that real-time end-to-end consignment tracking, combined with continuous cargo integrity monitoring, would be a market-leading offering; and would give them an inside track on new business, especially where customers were deeply concerned about loss of valuable assets in transit.
Outcome ⋅ SGS now delivers OMNIS, powered by Savi, a reliable solution to track freight movements using GPS, GPRS, and satellite technology that gives customers full in-transit visibility and real-time event management. Using Savi technology, OMINS monitors the precise location of a customer’s shipments at all times, automatically responding to unexpected or risky conditions with a wide range of alerts. In addition the Savi platform allows for the creation of robust, customizable geo-corridors, which define a “safe zone” for shipments — real-time alerts are sent to users if freight suddenly changes route, direction, or is delayed. With OMNIS, powered by Savi, SGS is beating the competition and winning new business in multiple geographies.
