LoJack SCI has been known for its supply chain monitoring solutions that have raised the visibility of shipments for manufacturers and purchasers alike. They have been helping multinational organizations in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, biotech, food, retail and consumer goods industries for over ten years. Their SC iOn™ Command Portal is a full-stack solution. It is comprised of GPS tracking devices and intelligent sensor tags, a robust software platform and a comprehensive 24/7 command and control service. Which, when combined, provide complete real-time visibility, temperature monitoring and security from the first mile to the last, regardless the mode of transportation. In the ever-changing sphere of increased regulations, recalls and competitive pressures, it is important to have access to the reliable, cost-effective and safe transit of goods.
CalAmp completed its acquisition of the entire LoJack Corporation in March 2016. As a result, LoJack and its groups became a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary. And we officially announced the rebranding of LoJack SCI to CalAmp SCI in January. There is no change in the service you have become accustomed to and the SCI team now has access to a greater pool of resources.
Fittingly, Motley Fool mentioned last year’s acquisition in their March 25, 2017 blog post:
“Last year, CalAmp made an investment in its future software opportunities with its purchase of LoJack, and it's already starting to pay off….While the LoJack purchase is just one example of CalAmp's investment in the future of software and services, it's important for investors to know how critical these two segments are to the broader IoT market.”
You will start to see more visible changes as CalAmp begins folding many of the LoJack SCI digital properties under the CalAmp SCI brand banner this spring. Content communications have been included in the CalAmp blog since January 2017. However, it is time to move the LoJack SCI website over to a dedicated area of digital real estate on the CalAmp website, which you may access here. In addition, we will be updating or moving the social media accounts to reflect the change. Follow us in real-time, like your shipments, as the conversions occur.
