TORONTO —BSM Technologies, in partnership with Lat-Lon, has announced its new BSM Technology Innovation Award. The award will recognize leadership and innovation in providing Internet of Things solutions in the rail industry. BSM & Lat-Lon, which partner in delivering best-in-class Internet of Things solutions for rail, will be presenting the award at the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association Connections Show in April.

The winner will be recognized publicly at the ASLRRA show, prefaced by a press release and information brief on their significant contributions to Internet of Things advancements and industry progress.

“We, at BSM, are impressed with how the adoption of technology in the rail industry consistently translates into significant tangible business results, ultimately advancing the industry as a whole as well as the communities in which we all operate. Now, more than ever, we’re seeing our industry leaders set themselves apart with creative implementations designed to address immediate and longer-term growth strategies. With our 20-plus decades partnering in rail we believe we’re uniquely positioned to recognize exceptional contributions via our Innovation Award,” said Aly Rahemtulla, BSM president and CEO.

“Often our customers see our solution as a stand-alone system they can use to improve efficiency. The reality is that the best utilization of our technology is when our customers integrate the location and sensor data into their business operations," says Dave Baker, President of Lat-Lon. "The addition of our data into the customer's databases, business practices and customer-facing applications fulfills the true potential of the Internet of Things. It's what we call virtual presence for all things shipped by train, truck or barge — and our customer’s customers love it.”

“All of us at BSM Technologies have great pride in our extensive solution portfolio, uniting all assets into one platform, and in our unique capability to deliver the right solution for our vertical customers,” adds Brendan Shaw, executive vice president for sales. BSM has undergone significant growth through the merger with Webtech Wireless and acquisition of industry leaders such as Mobi Corp, JMM, and Lat-Lon. The combined technology accelerates BSM’s ability to provide a single platform for all assets across various industries. Lat-Lon’s highly customizable rail products complement BSM solutions, key in the Electronic Logging Device and Hours of Service compliance space.
