Location Solution Applications
Location Solutions applications provide the interface to the location data, so you can use the solution in your business. Applications are typically built around the different ways location data can be used, including:
Asset Management – The tracking, management and utilization of anything tangible that is owned by a company or individual that is held for business use.
Supply Chain Management – The management of interconnected businesses and processes related to the manufacturing, distribution, and sale of products and services. Includes inventory and warehouse management.
Sensing and Monitoring – The integration of sensors (i.e. data loggers) that are used to monitor the physical environment of an object. Common sensors include temperature and humidity.
Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) – MRO is defined as all activities – technical and administrative – that are conducted to ensure that an object (tools, equipment, vehicles) is able to perform its required function.
Compliance – Compliance is the act or process of adhering to a demand or regimen specified by a government, industry or customer.
Safety/Security – The management, assurance and compliance of safety and security for an enterprise, its employees, assets, products and processes. Common applications include worker safety, evacuation and emergency mustering.
Workflow Optimization – The process of maximizing efficiency for the workflow of a business. One example is an automotive plant. The goal is to minimize the number of steps to get from point A to B in the manufacturing process, or making sure that when a worker gets to point B, they have XYZ available to do the job correctly.
