Consistent and precise positioning on the map for a smooth and trustworthy end-user experience
The Mapbox Navigation SDK enhanced location engine tracks the location of packages, food deliveries, and vehicles (bikes or cars), while cleaning up noisy GPS data. The driver’s location on the map stays in sync with the vehicle’s actual location at all times, giving customers a better understanding of where their order is, and when it will arrive.
Ably Asset Tracking offers headless, map-agnostic SDKs:
- Asset Publishing SDK - for embedding in apps running on the courier's device. Publishes updates with the asset's location.
- Asset Subscribing SDK - for embedding in apps running on the customer's device. Subscribes to updates related to the asset's location and status.
The SDKs come with simple yet powerful APIs, which you can quickly integrate into your tech stack with a few lines of code.Get started with Ably Asset Tracking SDKs
Ably Asset Tracking gives your customers and support agents accurate visibility into the location of any asset. This leads to improved quality of support, faster response times, and fewer customers reaching out to inquire about their order's status.
Building your own realtime asset tracking solution is resource-heavy, time-consuming, and downright difficult. By offloading this complexity to Ably Asset Tracking, you reduce your realtime asset tracking infrastructure, DevOps, and Engineering burden to zero. This way, you are free to focus on building, improving, and releasing new features and products faster.
Ably Asset Tracking is designed to be flexible, so you can customize it in a way that’s best for your specific use case:
- Use existing policies or implement custom logic to control the frequency of location updates and limit impact on battery life.
- As a headless, map-agnostic solution, Ably Asset Tracking works alongside all the different map solutions (including custom-built ones) you’re already using, enabling you to deliver dependable realtime asset tracking experiences across multiple digital products.
After it cleans noisy GPS data to provide consistent positioning and movement on the map, Ably Asset Tracking synchronizes accurate location updates to end-user devices in realtime. This creates a smooth experience and increases customer satisfaction, as users have a clear understanding of where their orders are, and visibility into when they will arrive.
