RFID, GPS and IoT Asset Management
From Industry 4.0 to the day to day running of businesses in every industry, automating and optimising the tracking, utilisation, management and retirement of assets has huge business benefits that positively impact both your top and your bottom line.
NFC Group creates asset tracking, monitoring, security and recovery solutions with Radio Frequency Identification, GPS and Internet of Things technologies and real-time data, over our Orion Data Network, enabling warehouse, inventory, supply chain, production, transportation and logistics optimisation.
Orion feeds back real-time business intelligence so you can make better business decisions that align with your wider business goals and those of your clients, partners and customers.
These insights give you the information you need to predict your asset maintenance requirements, carry out inventory in a fraction of the time, optimise your transportation routes, optimise reverse logistics and keep your assets and personnel safe and secure.
The result is a connected asset ecosystem that reduces downtime, maximises productivity and lowers your CAPEX and OPEX.
How Does the Orion Data Network Enable IoT Asset Management?
NFC Group’s Orion Data Network system was designed and built in the UK. This first to market solution increases efficiency by simplifying data communications through a system of GPS and non-GPS tags that transmit their unique identification number and location to a network of Orion gateways. The tags can be customised with a vast range of IoT enabled sensors that measure the condition of your assets including temperature, movement, pressure, level, shock and speed amongst others.
The system uses both passive and active RFID for continual background monitoring for spotting bottlenecks and anomalies in your operations to actively tracking and recovering lost and stolen assets in beacon mode with a hand-held RFID reader.
Orion feeds back real-time data from the tags, giving you a complete view of your assets, buildings, sites and personnel across the entire multi-supplier supply chain so you can easily manage the lifecycle of your assets, products and component parts from manufacturer, to warehouse, to end user and beyond.
