Asset Recovery

In the event of asset theft, Smarter Technologies Group can identify, trace and recover your assets fast, before they are re-purposed or stripped down for parts and sold. This has a positive impact on your bottom line as if an asset can be recovered there is no need for you to replace it.

We create both digital and analogue solutions over the Orion Data Network to enable you to track and recover your assets over long-range and also identify their location in beacon mode, via hand-held short-range devices that show their location within centimetres.
