Asset Management

Warnleuchte Warning light

‘Where are my assets?’

Companies rely on critical and expensive assets to drive their businesses.  Asset movement is sometimes unplanned and ad hoc, which creates problems in finding, managing, and maintaining them. The need to track these assets in real-time and ensure their continued operation is imperative.

Shipcom offers its asset management solution to cover all these contingencies. Utilizing automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technologies – barcodes, RFID, RTLS and GPS – and Shipcom’s CATAMARAN® system, assets can be identified and tracked wirelessly. Any item that is a part of the work process but does not leave as part of a finished product is a candidate for intelligent asset management with AIDC. AIDC can help enterprise companies automatically track and secure critical assets with very little human intervention.

Shipcom’s real-time technology takes asset management to the next level, providing unprecedented visibility, accuracy, and security. With AIDC, companies can automatically keep track of key assets and personnel as they move in and out of an area — whether it’s a stock room, airport hangar, data center, enterprise workplace, or transport terminal. Assets moving through the Shipcom implementation environment become more ‘intelligent’ since RFID tags allow more information to be stored than possible via other tagging methods. All critical components – date of manufacturers/suppliers for stock replenishment, part number, lots, locate tools, repairs and modifications, checklist/history log, and cycle times – are recorded and integrated to the back-end ERP system, improving data capture and worker efficiency.
