Momentum IoT in Partnership with Design 1st Wins 2020 IoT Excellence Award  

OTTAWA – January 27, 2021 – Design 1st, one of the most trusted full-service product design-engineering firms across North America, today announced that Momentum IoT: Eagle 1, a product designed in partnership with Design 1st, has received a 2020 IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media.   

The 2020 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred, and directly gathered from sensors, systems, and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions. 

“We’re honored to receive the 2020 IoT Excellence Award in partnership with Momentum IoT,” said Kevin Bailey, CEO, Design 1st.

“As custom electronics and physical product design company, we strive for innovation excellence in all phases of the product development lifecycle and this is why companies turn to us to help them develop and deliver successful products to market. Working with Momentum IoT was no exception.

With Momentum IoT: Eagle 1, we delivered the necessary end-to-end services and technical expertise to transform a touchable idea into a successful, commercialized product by putting the power of telematics into the palm of your hand and in the form of a rugged connected device for easy control and management of your entire fleet.”  

Momentum IoT, a developer of telematics products for tracking small to midsize fleets, partnered with Design 1st to develop Momentum IoT: Eagle 1, a mobile -first, ultra-rugged real-time GPS tracking device that makes it easy to view and manage the entire fleet operation from a single pane of glass view. 

Rugged by design and completely modular so it’s simple to use, Momentum IoT’s Eagle 1 encompasses telecommunications, vehicular technology and engineering and computer sciences into a mobile, plug and play GPS fleet tracking device that works across more vehicles and equipment, from pickups to tractor trailers.

It can withstand even the most treacherous of conditions and features mileage and idling reports, battery detection, speed alerts, asset sharing and more. Users now have a mobile device to easily see and manage every asset across the fleet, know the location of all drivers, get notifications to when trucks and equipment arrive, and alerts to issues – all in real time and to deliver the best customer service possible.
