Amber Connect is a Kingston-based software company that specializes in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Amber Connect’s primary product is an affordable, user-friendly vehicle tracking system, the first in the industry to employ artificial intelligence. The state-of-the-art system provides real-time GPS location data, generates instantaneous anti-theft alerts, and can remotely and automatically shut down the engine in case of unauthorized use.
Perhaps most importantly, the companion mobile and web applications provide customers with invaluable data regarding driving behavior, fuel expenditure, vehicle maintenance, and more. Amber Connect’s software uses big data analytics to compile and present this data in accessible, graphical reports. This comprehensive telematics data enables fleet managers to assess security risks, develop counter measures, and optimize resource allocation, thereby reducing operational costs. Clients can even leverage this data to obtain reduced insurance premiums.
Founded with the intention of using profits to fund humanitarian and philanthropic projects, Amber Connect strives above all to increase the quality of life for its customers.
In its short time on the market, Amber Connect has already made a significant impression upon the tech community, with clients in over a dozen countries. In the past two years, Amber Connect has presented at CES 2016 and 2017, the 2015 Web Summit in Ireland, and the 2016 Surge conference held in India.
