Company Profile

Silicon Computer and Telecoms, Inc. is a technology company founded in 1986. With its experience with Wireless Telemetry Systems (1994) and Data Warehousing (2004), it evolved as a service provider using the 2 emerging technologies:

Machine to Machine (M2M) is a term used to describe the technologies that enable computers, embedded processors, smart sensors, actuators and mobile devices to communicate with one another, take measurements and make decisions - often without human intervention.
Business intelligence (BI) is a broad category of applications and technologies for gathering, storing, analyzing, and providing access to data to help enterprise users make better business decisions. BI applications include the activities of decision support systems, query and reporting, online analytical processing (OLAP), statistical analysis, forecasting, and data mining.

Silicon also adapted the 2 business models:

Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth.
Software as a service, or 'SaaS', is a software application delivery model by which an enterprise vendor develops a web-based software application, and then hosts and operates that application over the Internet for use by its customers. Customers do not need to buy software licenses or additional infrastructure equipment, and typically only pay monthly fees (also referred to as annuity payments) for using the software.

 

Silicon’s flagship service is “GPS Tracker” (www.gpstracker.ph); an automatic vehicle (AVL) location service platform developed in 2005 and was introduced commercially to logistics companies in 2008.

Using the business model of “Cloud Computing” and “Software-as-a-Service”, it gained popularity when the GPS device was offered free of use with a fixed monthly service fee, unlimited access and  43,200 logs per month or 59-second data sampling interval, complimented with warranties:

 

  • Lifetime Service Warranty with Back up units – at no cost to client, units are replaced to avoid downtime

  • Technology Obsolescence Warranty – at no cost to client, GPS units are replaced if a new model emerges

  • Geographical Information System (GIS) updates  - A free service from our own mapping software overlaid to online maps and satellite images. This will put selected locations of your choice in our location data base

     

With the adaption of Business Intelligence (BI Technologies) and Telematics, GPS technology was used as an “enabler” to provide fleet and resource managementsystem and develop 4 Key Performance Indicators (KPI); Risk and driver safety, Fleet operational costs, Resource cost of productivity and Regulatory compliance.

Potential benefits of telematics and BI use in fleet include:

  • Monitor and correct driver behavior.
  • Lower accident rates.
  • Lessen cost for maintenance and repairs
  • Optimize productivity
  • Reduce vehicle idling and long distance driving
