Formerly known as TechnoCom Location Platform, Location Smart is a worldwide Cloud Locations Services provider stationed in Carlsbad, California. Essentially, the company is in the business of building the digital backbone of companies which allows them to communicate internally, externally, and store information in an efficient and effective way.
Whether it is a Fortune 500 company or a new upcoming start-up, Location Smart is in the business of making businesses run as smoothly as possible in an ever increasing digital world.
The way Location Smart is able to integrate a company and create programs that work off each other is by creating an application programming interface (API).
Think of it as communication protocols and digital tools that allow someone (or in this case Location Smart) to create a digital software from scratch. To break it down a little bit further, an API is clearly defined methods of communication between a variety of components. Read more: LocationSmart | LinkedIn and LocationSmart | Wikipedia
Speaking of API’s, Location Smart recently expanded its Smart Zone API by teaming up with AND’s Digital World Map Shoreline and International Administrative Boundaries. For individuals who do not know, AND is a worldwide provider of location-based services and digital maps. The company specializes in real time updates that allows businesses to obtain accurate logistics and run more effectively.
The Smart Zone API created by Location Smart uses a variety of methods to allow businesses to confirm the location of a device within or outside of a given boundary. This new API will now include compliance checks against global country boundaries in addition to pre-configured and customer-specific boundary options.
Hugo van der Linde, the CEO of AND, recently put out a statement after the finalization of the deal, “We are happy that we have entered into an agreement to license location and boundary data to LocationSmart. LocationSmart is the worldwide Cloud Location Services market leader for connected devices. This agreement strengthens our belief that we offer a quality mapping product, matching current market needs.”
Location Smart plans to put the new service out starting in the fourth quarter of this year. This new API is but one of many new initiatives the company has stored for the upcoming future.
