Barrows’ IoT journey began when their information business required volumes of SIMs with connectivity, to manage mobile data across their networked offerings to retailers. As the business moved into digital signage and screens Barrows realised that they needed a fully managed solution, but didn’t necessarily want to deal directly with multiple mobile network operators. Trinity’s platform met the full set of Barrows’ requirements; a single solution to manage devices across a number of mobile networks, and the provision of visibility into the data usage and status of each networked device. (Trinity provide network redundant connectivity to Barrows’ currently has 2,500 Trinity (SIMS) which power a network of 1,500 devices within various retail environments.
What really sets Trinity head and shoulders above other IoT providers we have worked with in the past is the level of personal service, and their deep understanding of the space. I can call Trinity up and know that I will speak to the same person, and that I’ll get a hold of them immediately. This is rare in the technology sector.Jonathan Kellerman, Product Owner, Barrows
