Iot Series. Chapter 3: Asset Tracking

Modern companies require high-quality maintenance, especially when it comes to equipment and estimation of available resources. Staff are often involved in searching for assets around a facility, which is time-consuming and expensive. Asset tracking allows real-time identification of equipment and devices, solving personal problems simultaneously.


Asset tracking can have many benefits like; reduce the time to track all assets, especially in a large area, ensure that the required equipment is in place, provide data for analysis and optimization, prevent theft and loss, provide real-time access to asset properties own, improve staff efficiency, increase workplace safety and reduce the amount of waste.


It also has a wide range of applications in warehouses, logistics networks and fleet control. As soon as a vehicle crosses the warehouse entrance, the transported load is identified and placed on the correct platform. Internal navigation provides data on current inventory and stock location, to shorten the search process and ensure that assets are placed in the intended sector.

In fleet management, it allows fleet operators to track vehicle status, which can even be in real time.


It is also applicable to many areas such as hospitals or health centers. It allows the location of patients and staff in real time. The solution provides continuous data on the current status of a patient and sends an alert if they faint or fall. The tracking system reorganizes asset management and provides data to indicate gaps in asset demand, drug expiration dates, and the location of expensive drugs or resources. The Surgical Instrument System Asset Tracking application ensures the integrity of any instrument set and valid sterilization dates.


It can even be useful in libraries or archives. Assets such as documents, papers, and books require proper organization and labeling. Asset Tracking collects real data about your own assets and organizes the flow of books or documents. This information allows files to be cataloged and prevents them from being stolen or lost. The implementation of asset tracking in libraries significantly improves the checkout / return process to shorten delivery times.


The benefits are infinite, we can apply it to all kinds of industries and be much more efficient and not waste time or resources.
