Location as a service (LaaS) is about to get a lot more powerful across the nation of Canada.
That’s because California-based LocationSmart recently announced it is bringing its world-class LaaS to the Great White North. This will provide a host of capabilities, including carrier network location, SMS (Short Message Service), consent management, gaming compliance, workforce management capabilities and much more.
The service will provide consent-based access to 90 percent of Canadian smartphone users.
LocationSmart is widely recognized by industry observers for its stellar track record in providing excellent security across an array of LaaS functions. It can be used across all platform types, including tablets, smartphones, M2M/IoT, feature phones and more.
Officials with LocationSmart said they completed a comprehensive Beta program for Canada in early 2018. Many business entities and individual users are already on board and using LocationSmart LaaS. Thanks to what has been a seamless implementation of process, users across Canadian have been quick to take advantage of the power of mobile network location services.
