Essential Guide to Asset Tracking Solutions
Location tracking software and hardware has grown hand-in-hand with the amazing number of applications they create. The trend towards digitization of operations across all verticals and the march towards Industry 4.0 are huge reasons for the wide variety of ways that technology is being used. On top of that, the relentless expansion of the functionalities delivered by RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) and the creativity used to apply them result in a list of use cases that gets longer every day.
If you can think of an industry that remains untouched by applications based on location data, we’d like to hear about it.
Far from slowing down, the rate of innovation and adoption across industries is accelerating as more facilities discover the value of RTLS. This dramatically increased interest has fueled the rise of multiple new wireless platforms that are finding niches in industries that are well-suited to their particular strengths. The alphabet soup that previously consisted primarily of RFID, Wi-Fi and BLE has now been seasoned with ingredients like UWB and NBIoT. There’s a lot going on right now in this industry and change is coming at a spectacular pace.
That’s why we’ve put together a white paper to help you make sense of some of the basics in the world of RTLS. Specifically, we cover the most common use cases for location data and the various wireless technologies—both established and up-and-coming—that are allowing industries to create ever more tailored solutions to the business challenges they face.
In the white paper, you’ll learn about:
- The benefits of asset tracking common across verticals
- Vertical-specific use cases involving the contextual application of location data
- The pros & cons of commonly used wireless RTLS platforms
- The ideal use cases for those wireless platforms
- The technical differences that distinguish them
- Which Kontakt.io product match particular use cases
The advantages of RTLS are obvious and the business benefits they deliver are clear and well documented. The insights into movements and processes made possible by location data provide shortcuts directly to inefficiencies that were previously easily obscured. Whether applied to warehousing & inventory management, asset tracking, employee monitoring, safety & security or something else, the visibility delivered by location opens the door to any number of adjustments, enhancements and changes that move operations towards a leaner, smarter way of working.
Learning about how location data can help your business and which wireless technology is best suited to your environment are among the first steps towards designing a solution that works for you. Download the white paper today.
