Mason transforms your smart device
ideas into reality.

How much does this cost?
Our solutions are tailor-made to save you resources. Get to market quickly and efficiently while reducing overall cost!

Why not build my own?
MasonOS speeds your time to market.
Reduce your overhead.
Our solutions are hyper-focused on saving you time, money, and resources. Whether you want a single vendor for logistics and operations or an end-to-end smart device solution that handles everything, Mason meets you where you need us most.
Building your own solution from scratch comes with a number of unknowns. Ensure your product’s delivery from beginning to end with a proven partner like Mason.
Faster time to market
From zero-touch provisioning to over-the-air deployments and remote access to any device in the field allows you to update thousands of devices at once, cutting out manual time-sucks and getting you to market fast.
Focus on your core value prop
Spend far less time and resources worrying about the details and focus on what you do best: creating and managing a world-class product for your end users. MasonOS can handle the rest.
Why not just use MDM?
MDM is just one part of the problem.
When you need device fleet management, you need connectivity — that’s where MDMs don’t have you covered. Partnering with Mason means you bundle everything you need into one vendor.
Remote debug and management
Manually connecting and updating individual devices makes it impossible to scale quickly and effectively, while physical troubleshooting is complicated and time-consuming. Mason’s remote control and OTA updates simplify fleet management in every way.
Cut out the noise of multiple vendors and touch points with Mason’s end-to-end smart device ecosystem, making it swift and cost-efficient to replace or refurbish hardware.
Analytics and logging
Performance is no longer a black box with Mason’s detailed analytics and logging tools, easily accessible via our Controller platform. Pull detailed logs remotely to troubleshoot and resolve issues quickly. Optimize performance with the data you need right at your fingertips.
Deep integration into MasonOS
Our hardware, fleet management, and logistics services work together with MasonOS to serve you a seamless, streamlined smart device solution — all you need to focus on is your app.
