I magine waking up hurriedly one morning to attend an important meeting only to find the car battery moribund. A few twists to the ignition and the battery departs to its grave; that meeting is missed, and an important client is lost. Now imagine the evening before that morning and the computer screen relaying a message about the battery’s grave health. Countermeasures, say renting a car or replacing the battery, could have been taken and that client would not have been lost. This word picture is anything but mere imagination, albeit, with a little twist. Suitable for the likes of automobile dealers and car rental companies instead of individual car owners, a solution called VaizTrack can do this and a lot more. VaizTrack’s intelligent software along with a physical device installed in vehicles can allow organizations to surveil and track their vehicles round the clock, monitor battery status and remotely disable battery in the event of theft. It can also help manage, maintain and retrieve vehicle and vehicle parts information efficiently and manage inventories with automated alerts.
The firm that developed VaizTrack, Vaizva, understands that the possibilities IoT can unlock are only limited by one’s imagination and that there could be a plethora of ideas and concepts waiting to be implemented. And, to deliver the capabilities to enable visionaries to translate their IoT ideas into reality, this Georgia, U.S.A., based firm leverages SAP’s state-of-the-art functionalities such as geospatial processing, series data, and location services. “Our in-memory IoT platform can help providers to quickly develop, deploy, and manage real-time IoT and machine-to-machine applications,” says Ramesh Kannan, Founder & CEO of Vaizva.

Vaizva’s platform allows users to automate core processes and connect with almost every element within their network. A SAP Silver Partner for application development, Vaizva’s expertise in SAP HANA Cloud solution, Fiori Applications and S/4 HANA extensions allows businesses to build IoT solutions for various line-of-business and industry use cases. Vaizva also leverages big data analytics into IoT by partnering with Hortonworks.
Viazva has an additional product in its shelf, Predictive Transporting Tracking (PTT). PTT serves at the one-stop solution for logistics business. It is a coherently designed integrated solution with planning, scheduling, real-time tracking, and key performance indicators with rich, built-in analytics. PTT has built-in API integrations that provide real-time updates such as fuel costs to calculate freight costs. Intuitive data maintenance can enable companies to manage owned/third-party vehicles while Master applications can offer complete visibility into organizations' resource pool. Built on SAP HANA Could the solution can be connected to any database using SAP cloud connectors and OData Services. And, as there is no middleware software involved users can significantly reduce their IT costs.
Kannan admits that there indeed are other reliable vehicle tracking mechanisms available in the market but, adds, that most can provide only accurate start and end dates of the trip with an “In Transit” status. Many such solutions don’t provide the exact location of the vehicle during the “In Transit” time window. “PTT addresses this gap by leveraging SAP HANA’s powerful IoT capabilities such as geospatial processing, series data, and location services,” informs Kannan.
The innovative stance of the firm could be traced to the experience and expertise its founder brings to the table. Kannan carries years of experience in SAP consulting having served as a Subject Matter Expert for various global giants. “Viazva’s strength lies in its team’s robust knowledge in multiple domains, and our services branch from the years of experience and the dynamic methodologies we use to address client’s needs.”
