SIRV tracks asset status through:
- Proof of presence using near field communication (NFC)
- Status reports
Notifications are sent by email and reviewed online. In addition, their status is visualised.
Tracking asset users sounds simple. However, things become complex very quickly in different scenarios. For example, an authorised user removes an asset. The user then becomes ill and a colleague takes over the asset, how do we track this exchange? The answer is not straightforward. However, we build solutions to handle some of the most complex scenarios.
Movement within a building
There’s a number of different technologies to track assets within premises. RFID, Bluetooth and NFC are most common. And, each has its own advantages and disadvantages and, cost profile.
We determine what is the best fit for you by gaining a deep insight of the challenge you face. Thereafter, we present possible solutions and make a recommendation to fit your budget and feasibility.
Movement between buildings
Track asset movement between buildings by:
1) Attach a device that constantly communicates its location via GPS.
2) Gateways: When an asset passes through a gateway a message is sent. Use beacons, RFID and NFC to achieve this aim.
Discover where an asset’s location at any one time. Periodically, command the asset to communicate its location.
Within buildings this is possible with beacons, outside, use GPS.
Important considerations include power consumption and how often you want to know the asset location.
