At Bigmate, we value our partnership with AWS, and want to assist the AWS sales team as much as possible, especially during this increased commission promotion. Throughout these videos, Bigmate General Manager Brett Orr gives an overview of who Bigmate is and what we offer, as well as giving examples of use cases and sales techniques across different verticals and product categories.
Who is Bigmate?
In this video, Brett gives an overview of who Bigmate is and the markets in which we operate. He explains the three main pillars of Bigmate’s business – telematics, IoT and video monitoring.
Iot & IoA
The Internet of Things has been a buzzword term for a few years now, but there is often confusion about what it is and how it can be used to achieve business outcomes. In this video, Brett discusses how Bigmate positions their IoT solutions, and the market growth that is possible using low cost, low bandwidth IoT devices compared to traditional high cost sensors.
Vertical – Councils
Bigmate can provide solutions across multiple different vertical markets. In this video, Brett discusses some of the big ones – councils, transportation, retail & government, and does a deep dive on some use cases in the council market. He explains how a simple solution involving measuring how full a bin is can lead to multiple uses funnelling data through the same system, and creating emergent cost and public good outcomes.
Vertical – Transportation
The world of IoT as applied to transportation means a lot more than just tracking the position of cars and trucks. In this video, using example use cases, Brett stresses the importance of considering what and how goods are being transported when providing an IoT solution, to create real business growth and massive financial outcomes for customers.
Vertical – Retail
Utilised in merchandising, trolleys and more, low cost IoT solutions have opened up the retail market like never before. Brett discusses real life use cases in the retail industry, before moving to some suggested government use cases.
Bigmate Video Safety Monitoring Solution
Workplace safety is a critical part of any operations-based business, and the human, emotional and financial repercussions of a workplace injury can be massive. The Bigmate Video Monitoring Solution overlays onto any existing camera system and uses sophisticated tracking data to predict collisions. Brett discusses this technology and the market for it in this video.
Icetana is an incredible solution that brings IoT data gathering to anonymous video monitoring. In this video, Brett explains what Icetana is, and the power it has to create truly smart surveillance.

The Return on Investment (RoI) on these solutions are explained below:
1. Bigmate’s Warny – Video Safety Solution.
Warny is used wherever there is an interaction between heavy vehicles and people. The ROI on this solution can be evaluated from the following points:
Chain of Responsibility (CoR):
CoR means corporate entities, directors, partners and managers have a duty of care and are accountable for the actions of people under their control. For any accident that occurs at a workplace, the people held accountable can range from
