Victoria, Canada, August 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- AppLocation Systems, Inc. announced that it has recently been awarded a contract to deploy active RFID and MOBILEFusion™ to track cable reels for a utility customer from one distribution centre and to and from nine yards across Canada. The project roll out will deploy thousands of heavy duty industrial active RFID tags commencing in August 2008 and is slated to be completed by mid October.
AppLocation President Gary Hartwig commented, "The entire project is expected to include up to 50 additional locations yard management plus a variety of asset tracking classes which may include passive and active RFID plus GPS tracking of vehicles on the same platform."
Hartwig went on the say that the scalability of AppLocation's MOBILEFusion™ platform was a key factor in being chosen for the project. "Our carrier grade MOBILEFusion™ platform links location sensitive data from networks to ERP applications such as inventory, billing and order entry," he said."By using the flexibility of MOBILEFusion's platform architecture with wireless and GPS and RFID integration capabilities, it's now easier than before to find inventory across the supply chain by "going mobile."
Hartwig continued, "In this application, the critical business requirement is to ensure cable reels are in the correct yard at the right time to guarantee service delivery." He added."MOBILEFusion will manage the data load for thousands of asset tags, monitor readers and cellular backhaul for remote locations and handle mapping and reporting, so users can easily see where inventory is - for real time supply chain visibility."
The convergence of location sensitive technologies such as RFID, GPS and handheld location based services (LBS) requires a next generation wireless plug and play platform to drive easy, affordable adoption of asset location for supply chain logistics and mobile resource management. "We bring rich mapping, location-sensitive data, business logistics and supply chain visibility into transaction data," concludes Hartwig.
