Administering and controlling a substantial asset base is often both complex and expensive. Locating and identifying equipment when needed for inventory checks, utilisation, maintenance or upgrades can be difficult and extremely time consuming.

In some cases, it might be necessary to purchase substitutes for mislaid equipment resulting in escalating inventory, maintenance, and storage and management costs. Theft of vital assets, on the other hand, might remain undiscovered until needed in an emergency.

Real Time Location Software (RTLS)

Tracking your assets with Real Time Location Software (RTLS) offers an effective and realistic solution that reduces the cost burden of surplus equipment whilst making the management of assets easier and far more efficient. 

 

With RTLS organisations can:

  • Protect investment of owned, leased or rented equipment.
  • Reduce running costs and increase operational efficiencies.
  • Enhance management services and improve the delivery of customer service.
  • Utilise existing WLAN infrastructure for an integrated RTLS.
  • Centrally manage, monitor and control asset movement and activities, with 'real-time' visual data access.
  • Automatically escalate predefined security parameters through email, SMS or equivalent messaging systems.

RTLS Applications

RTLS applications offer users clear visibility into their operations, turning locations of assets across the enterprise into valuable information. For businesses with an eye on the bottom line and a goal of improving efficiency, these applications deliver the data required to streamline business processes and optimize asset utilisation.

 

 

Key features include:

  • Customisable user desktop view
  • Ability to find the location of any tracked item, using its specified name, current location, equipment type or category
  • Customisable real-time event rules, web-based event notifications and acknowledgements
  • Integrated tag and Asset Tracking
  • Display location as a tabular view or real time map of the facility; and Bi-directional interaction with Wi-Fi tags, activate LED or buzzer alerts.

Tags

To locate a mobile object or a person a tag is attached to the tracked object or simply carried. Additionally, mobile computers and other Wi-Fi enabled devices can be accurately tracked using application software running in the background of the device.

A4n Tags

The A4n asset tag is a small battery operated Wi-Fi tag. It is small enough for tagging yet provides multi-year battery lifetime. The tag incorporates an intelligent motion sensor and software that triggers sending the location data only when that tag is moving or has moved to a new position. This intelligence saves battery life and minimizes required network bandwidth.

B4n Badge Tag

The B4n is a credit card sized rechargeable Wi-Fi tag. It is ideal for personnel tracking, or for tracking assets that have a power source that can be connected to the tag for a continuous power feed. The tag features an intelligent motion sensor as with the A4n tag, pull switch for activating alarms in case of emergencies, call buttons, and an optional text display for sending and receiving short text messages.
