One of the key opportunities for organisations to increase profitability is to improve the management and control of its fixed and mobile assets. The identification, tracking and monitoring of assets has traditionally been labour intensive and complex, particularly for mobile assets where asset location often changes.
Ramp’s Loca.fi software addresses these challenges, allowing more streamlined and automated data capture. Loca.fi software facilitates actionable data being delivered right to the operator or manager, to improve asset performance and drive process efficiency.
RFID tags are attached to items and a combination of fixed and mobile infrastructure is used to deliver current location and status data.
Location – Know the exact location of all assets.
Dispatch and Receive– Automate the receiving and dispatching of assets
Stock Levels – Quick and easy stocktaking of all assets
Asset Maintenance – Performing scheduled services and ensuring maintenance history is updated to reduce time and cost associated with typical processes.
Process Automation – RFID technology is used to leverage location and status data, to automate workflow operations.
Asset Security – Alerts are generated when unauthorised activity is detected. Alerts can take the form of an alarm, a flash light or an email.
Sensor Data – Gauge environmental parameters (temperature, pressure, humidity, vibration) of key items in real-time to prevent spoil. Utilising active RFID technology with external sensors to monitor a parameter or condition, it allows maintenance to be scheduled, or a notification to be sent if there is a significant change or a developing failure.
Item Accountability – Personnel & items are both tagged to record the identity of the employee performing the tasks, to provide better accountability.
Usage History – Track the usage history of assets, including movement and engine hours.
RFID Asset Tracking delivers a multitude of benefits – both financial and non-financial – by making sure the right asset is at the right place at the right time. The resulting efficiency gains can provide a significant competitive advantage.
Increased productivity – Employees spend less time tracking down missing or misplaced equipment.
Accuracy – Collect data faster in greater detail & eliminate human error.
Compliance – Reporting flexibility with more accurate records.
Accountability – Enforces personal responsibility and accountability for company property.
Improved asset maintenance– Assured adherence to critical and routine maintenance procedures such as calibration.
Improved efficiency – Streamline current processes.
Increased utilization– improvements in asset visibility and utilization reduce the need to purchase or lease spare parts and equipment.
Reduced capital and operational costs – The reduction in the loss of assets reduces the need to purchase and manage additional assets.
