W-Locate plans to expand its operations to other Asian countries enabled by the Tata Communications MOVE™ platform and IZO™ Private Cloud

Dubai, UAE, July 23, 2018:   W-Locate, the Singapore-based Internet of Things (IoT) start-up, has selected Tata Communications, a leading global digital infrastructure provider, to accelerate its international growth. W-Locate provides real-time location-based information to enterprises across Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta and Malaysia. It is now looking to extend its presence to South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and other Asian countries by harnessing Tata Communications’ IoT and private cloud computing capabilities. 

W-Locate’s XimLoc and FIND (fleet intelligent dynamics) services integrate machine-to-machine (M2M) telematics, big data and cloud computing with location intelligence. With XimLoc, any SIM card-based device can be located without relying on GPS alone. FIND caters for industries that are always on the move such as ready-mixed concrete supply, telematics and logistics. 

By equipping these solutions with Tata Communications MOVE™  platform, W-Locate aims to extend its reach across different industries in Asia. W-Locate will store all XimLoc and FIND data in IZO™ Private Cloud to help it scale up as demand for the services continues to grow. 

Tata Communications MOVE™ platform eliminates the need for W-Locate to negotiate separate data connectivity agreements with different local MNOs in each country by using Tata Communications’ relationships with more than 600 mobile network operators (MNOs) around the world. This disruptive approach to global cellular connectivity helps accelerate W-Locate’s international expansion in Asia, reducing roaming costs significantly and enabling W-Locate to offer seamless IoT-enabled services to its customers.

Stevie Ooi, Founder and CEO, W-Locate said, “We’re a fast-moving start-up, and we want to work with like-minded businesses to accelerate our growth. The Tata Communications MOVE™ platform helps us do just that, and offer borderless connectivity to our customers in new markets. We estimate that working with a single global IoT partner like Tata Communications will help reduce our capex by 35% while giving us the agility we need to stay ahead in this constantly changing industry.”

One of W-Locate’s first customers using Tata Communications MOVE™ and IZO™ Private Cloud is LafargeHolcim Malaysia, part of the global LafargeHolcim Group – a leading manufacturer of building materials with a presence in around 80 countries. W-Locate will leverage Tata Communications’ IoT and cloud capabilities to collect and manage LafargeHolcim Malaysia’s data securely and seamlessly across borders.

Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications said, “IoT start-ups that are looking for swift global expansion need to capture, move and manage information seamlessly, reliably and securely worldwide. Through the ubiquitous nature of the Tata Communications MOVE™ platform, businesses like W-Locate are able to give their global customers the secure and seamless IoT experiences they expect - without making huge investments in their own infrastructure in new markets.”

Tata Communications MOVE™ platform is part of the company’s aim of creating truly global, borderless mobile experiences for people and things. IZO™ Private Cloud is part of Tata Communications’ IZO™ cloud enablement platform. Both these solutions are underpinned by Tata Communications’ global network, which today connects 4 out of 5 mobile subscribers and carries over 25% of the world’s Internet routes.
