Vodafone and Custodia Systems help businesses track and trace valuable assets

Case studies 01 January 2011

Vodafone delivers the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology that underpins the business and is providing the strategic vision to help the Custodia Systems international expansion.

Business need

Custodia Systems is a UK security consultancy and the global distributor of a market-leading tracking device that recovers valuable assets. Custodia Systems needed a fail-safe communications infrastructure to support its products. To ensure consumer confidence and provide a competitive advantage, the solution needed to be reliable, secure, and provide accurate positioning information. In addition, it had to work globally.

It has completely changed our business model. The whole business is not built around Vodafone's Global M2M Platform: we have a roaming SIM with fixed costs for international services. It means we can forecast our budget more accurately, and we're covered in all the major markets. Peter Thompson, Founder, Custodia Systems
