Machine-to-Machine (M2M) is one of the fervent buzzwords existing in today’s tech arena. The invasion of Internet of Things (IoT) has become a catch-all term that is used to describe a multiplicity of underlying technologies. Modern enterprises are focused on having a robust M2M platform as the next logical step in the IoT journey. The Bellevue, WA-based Bsquare Corporation helps companies add intelligence to remote devices, connect them, and drive better business outcomes with the data generated by those devices. This legacy, which touches upon many aspects central to IoT, places Bsquare in a strong position to impart meaningful insights as businesses of all types embark on IoT journeys. “We specialize in bringing devices into a connected world for enterprises and help organizations make IoT a business reality,” asserts Jerry Chase, CEO at Bsquare Corporation.
Thriving for a paradigm shift in the M2M space, Bsquare Corporation offers DataV—a complete IoT software stack for experiencing business profit outcomes in this connected world. DataV is focused on three areas mainly, IoT device enablement, real-time business logic and data analytics.

DataV with Bsquare’s professional service capabilities enable companies across a wide range of industries to implement complete business-focused IoT solutions. “We are focused on industrial internet,” remarks Chase. The company’s M2M solution—DataV is now deployed across enterprises to create business-focused IoT systems. As businesses are quite often confronted with locating assets in the field, DataV creates geo-fence zones and applies unique logic per zone or asset. It provides the operations managers with the real-time visibility that is essential for revenue generating assets.
Having been in the market place for more than two decades, Bsquare Corporation has assisted many clients with their DataV solution. As a trusted technical vendor, the firm was instrumental in helping the global Coca-Cola Company with their Freestyle machine to feature 125 different Coca- Cola drink products, and custom flavors. They were challenged to find a solution by which users themselves can select from mixtures of flavors of Coca-Cola branded products which will be then individually dispensed. With significant work and investment, the firm prepared an architectural design for the dispensers, which are flexible, reusable and have interfaces unlike any other fountain dispenser. Further, the firm helped Coca- Cola in achieving intuitive user-interface design and implementation and the ability to capture valuable customer usage data to drive product management and further brand development. Through this, the client was able to deliver superior products with greater uptime characteristics to their customers.
Bsquare Corporation envisions M2M and IoT markets as a matter of developing ecosystems, not just merely technologies. “We will continue to take M2M to a new level with the wealth of growth opportunities in the market,” concludes Chase.
