Toronto, Canada – February 10, 2022 – Skylink, the network operator for the global 0G network Skylink, a world leading IoT (Internet of Things) communication provider, has announced its partnership with Nanolike, a leader in logistics optimization and automated supply chain. This partnership is set to improve supply chain management and create seamless integration across the entire process within the agricultural industry.
Nanolike offers an end-to-end maintenance-free fill monitoring solution with real time tracking of fill level and monitors the status of assets including temperature and product thresholds. Sensors are installed on the exterior of the asset, so they never come in contact with the product being monitored. Through eliminating the manual monitoring process, organizations can reduce their overall expenses and experience operational efficiencies while increasing their return on working capital. This also ensures that silos are refreshed and continually churning to reduce spoiling of perishable products, so they retain their shelf-life.
By integrating Nanolike’s wireless connectivity with the Skylink 0G Network, the solution will reduce battery consumption and offer longer autonomy. The Skylink network not only features low energy consumption, but it’s cost effective and scalable making it ideal for remote or metropolitan areas. Customers in rural areas can also benefit directly as the Skylink 0G Network is available all across Canada, even in areas lacking sufficient cellular or internet service.
“This partnership with Nanolike will ensure our customers have better visibility in their supply chain, providing better management and enhanced service to the end customer. Understanding fill levels and when product needs to be replenished without manually having to assess each silo will undoubtedly increase business efficiencies,” said Kent Rawlings, President of Skylink.
“Partnering with Skylink opens great opportunity to allow our customer to use our maintenance-free IoT solution for more than 5 years without changing batteries. It reduces the total cost of ownership of our solution and improves the customer experience,” declares Jean-Jacques Bois, C.O.O. and co-founder of Nanolike.
