Expansion of asset tracking solutions and expertise

 
RFiD Discovery, part of Paragon ID, the leading provider of identification solutions, has partnered with geolocation specialist Apitrak to develop a “multi-technology” cloud-hosted IoT platform for the tracking of assets, inventory and people. 
 
The new solution will support rapid scaling thanks to its low set up and maintenance costs and can be used with any tracking, identification and monitoring technology including active and passive RFID, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Wi-Fi and GPS.
 
Set to launch later this year, the new multi-sensor platform builds on the success of Paragon ID and Apitrak with their respective asset tracking solutions:
 
  • Paragon ID, through its subsidiary, RFiD Discovery, is the market leader for equipment tracking solutions in the UK, in particular in the healthcare sector, working with over thirty National Health Service (NHS) Trusts as well as commercial clients. RFiD Discovery offer includes solutions for asset tracking, inventory management, process monitoring, wandering patient safety, staff safety and automatic temperature monitoring.
  • Apitrak has developed an IoT Platform, a cloud-based software that enables multi-sensor geolocation, full-web user interface and rapid scaling with low maintenance costs. Created in 2016, Apitrak has been highly successful in providing Wi-Fi, BLE and GPS based medical device tracking and emergency call systems to hospitals and industrial customers in France.
Representing a step change in IoT platforms, the new system will be ideal for manufacturing and logistics businesses as well as healthcare and other service providers looking for easy-to-implement solutions to track assets, people or inventory in order to improve efficiency, cut costs and improve safety. 
 
Supporting the use of different sensor technologies, the new platform will enable organisations to build on existing systems and infrastructure, and even combine the information from different tracking technologies in one central system. A full intuitive web interface including map views to display tracking information, will be accessible securely from anywhere, whilst smart interfacing with existing software systems such as ERP or asset database ensures that information can easily be shared across other vital systems.
