Overseas Training

Bringing all the skills and experience required together to enable a team to effectively prosecute recoveries is always harder in an overseas market. Issues such as language barrier, cultural differences, legal and jurisdiction considerations, and substantial differences in the available equipment are all potential barriers to success.

Foreign & Multiple Jurisdictions

Smarter Technologies Group has experience and a proven track record of recoveries in many countries throughout the world. There are 2 main different types of operation, the first where the theft and subsequent recovery occur in a single country and the second, when a stolen item crosses multiple international boundaries.

We have the capability to operate cross-border, in multiple jurisdictions, eliminating the advantages that criminals can have from multiple border crossings. Smarter Technologies Group will train local teams in our recovery solutions and provide ongoing 24/7 telephone support, anywhere in the world.

RFID Technology

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automated identification and data collection technology. We use it in so many aspects of our lives without even realising it such as access cards to get into our workplace or the chips I our passports when we travel abroad for work or relaxation. Each RFID rtag has a unique id number so when you attach it to an asset you can identify and track that aseet in real time.

These tags emit their unique ID number, at intervals, to a gateway, or to a beacon when using hand-held RFID reader. The gateway or reader captures the tags’ unique data and passes it on to middleware, which in turn sorts and analyses the data for valuable business intelligence and deep insights with customisable reporting.

There are 2 main kinds of RFID technology. These are passive with no battery and active which utilises a battery.

RFID is superior to pure GPS tracking as it doesn’t need a “line of sight” connection between the asset and the tracker and it works even in difficult environments or when your asset has been hidden underground, underwater or behind concrete.

Your asset can be tracked at both long and short range and the data that can be collected is hugely varied including but not limited to current location, temperature, shock, tilt, level, impact and status within geo-fenced locations, giving you a very clear overall picture of all aspects of your asset.

How Orion Data Network works

Orion Form Factors

Orion asset tracking, security and recovery devices come in a broad range of shapes, sizes and technical specifications depending on their intended application and your particular requirements. Tracking devices can be overt or covert and the smaller devices can weigh just 28g. They run for 3, 5 or 10 years on a single charge, depending on size, battery type and usage. Orion reports back to you about the status of your assets in real-time, every 15 seconds when your assets are on the move and every 2 minutes when your assets are stationary. Orion GPS and non-GPS tags have a range of up to 10 miles from each Gateway.

Smart Technology

Orion GPS RFID tags learn their environment by gathering thousands of pieces of data every second so that the system can pinpoint and alert you of unusual occurrences and anomalies, making Orion one of the smartest technologies in the asset tracking space.

Highly Scalable

Orion provides you with you own private data and security network that you can scale up or down immediately depending on your business needs.

Intelligent Data

Orion’s back-end infrastructure comprises an impressive suite of API’s and an easy to use online asset management system with customisable real-time data analytics, predictive analytics, reporting, and billing.

Faster ROI

Orion provides 360 degree visibility over your supply chain allowing you to streamline your operations, reduce your capex and opex and see a faster return on your investment.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Streamlining your supply chain and optimising your assets reduces wastage across the board enabling you to reduce your overall carbon footprint to meet regulatory standards and stand out to your customers as a sustainable environmentally conscious business.
