Cloudleaf Software Powers Logistics-as-a-Service Solution
Cloudleaf today announced that Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has picked Cloudleaf's Digital Visibility Platform as part of its new Logistics-as-a-Service offering which is part of the Qualcomm® IoT Services Suite. The arrangement from Cloudleaf will give an easy-to-send and easy-to-utilize Logistics service that incorporates Qualcomm Technologies' segments, as well as Cloudleaf's Digital Visibility software to enable an all encompassing, end-to-end perspective on the supply chain. The Cloudleaf arrangement will drive adoption and utilization of hyper-scale cloud, digital twin, Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G technologies within the supply chain.

COVID-19 uncovered many vulnerabilities in global supply chains, most notably that leaders lacked an all encompassing understanding of the state of their supply chain, including knowing where items are, what condition they are in and the normal arrival times. These inquiries are hard to answer and the current cycles, often manual with alarm clocks and spreadsheets, don't give an every minute of every day, real-time perspective on the state of supply chains. Cloudleaf set out to address this issue with its leading-edge software to address each pain point along the supply chain.

Cloudleaf's device and data agnostic platform gives nonstop visibility into the unique circumstance, condition, timing and location of material and assets all through supply chains. The Digital Visibility Platform leverages hyper-scale cloud, digital twin, AI/ML and IoT technologies to convey consistent visibility and intelligence. By consolidating real-time occasions from sensors, business cycles, disturbances and dangers, the Cloudleaf platform can virtualize and visualize the end-to-end supply chain. Cloudleaf has consolidated its Digital Visibility Platform with Qualcomm Technologies' innovative and advanced 5G technologies, IoT devices and services, intended to enable an amazing Logistics-as-a-Service offering.

“At Cloudleaf, we are committed to working with our customers to transform their supply chain into a strategic, data-driven asset capable of unlocking growth opportunities as everything becomes connected,” said Mahesh Veerina, CEO of Cloudleaf. “We are honored to have our solution included in the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite.”
