Fathom, Gimbal Forge Technology Alliance

Fathom, a provider of Bluetooth real-time location system (RTLS) asset-tracking solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Gimbal, a supplier of enterprise-grade mobile-engagement and location-intelligence systems.

The partnership, the companies report, will provide customers with Gimbal's beacons and over-the-air security and Fathom's indoor location platform. The agreement includes joint marketing and sales referral to common prospective enterprise customers, and enables Fathom to distribute Gimbal beacons and leverage Gimbal Secure Mode functionality.

"With Fathom to monitor and locate their beacons, both existing and new Gimbal deployments will enjoy the best each company offers," said Guylain Roy-MacHabée, Fathom's CEO, in a prepared statement. "We are building a partner ecosystem with the best global beacon vendors and we are proud to work with Gimbal. Fathom's asset tracking customers can now purchase Gimbal beacons directly from us, including the popular coin-sized Gimbal S10—an ideal form factor that enables exciting and secure asset tracking scenarios."

Fathom's indoor location technology utilizes Bluetooth technology. "Fathom's location expertise and ability to accurately locate beacons indoors without the need for a mobile app is a natural fit for the asset-stracking market," said Brian Dunphy, Gimbal's general manager for enterprise business, in the prepared statement. "We are delighted to be working with Fathom to expand the reach of each other's products in the marketplace."
