“With the release of Elevāt EZ, we are taking the heavy lifting out of connecting machines to the cloud,” said Adam Livesay, co-founder and chief revenue officer at Elevāt. “The plug-and-play hardware and flexible software application eliminate the downtime and difficult, time-consuming deployment associated with typical IoT solutions available today.

Elevāt EZ is engineered to connect in minutes and provide detailed GPS and geofencing capabilities, alarms and notifications to any device, along with information on usage, parts, fuel and operational reports and as many as 10 custom configured data points.
