Bluetooth Low Energy for asset locating and tracking

Locate your high-value assets with near-zero infrastructure and lower total cost of ownership.

In addition to providing the best in traditional auto-ID technologies (barcoding, RFID, RTLS), Acumentive offers the latest in high-value asset locating via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).  BLE beacon technology gives organisations a secure, faster, less costly locating and tracking alternative to RFID, WiFi and RTLS – all by utilising any computer workstation or mobile device with Bluetooth capability as a zone for BLE tags.

  • Tough, industrial tags designed in the UK for commercial use
  • Rapid deployment, requiring no extra infrastructure or installation of tag readers at a site
  • Highly configurable tags with extended battery life (up to 5 years depending on range and usage)
  • Ability to read tags from any Bluetooth enabled mobile device
  • Doesn’t interfere with WiFi and offers bigger zone ranges (and high concurrency)
  • Able to include multiple IDs and inlays, including EPC and GS1 identifiers
  • Better value for money – BLE has significantly lower total cost of ownership compared to WiFi, active RFID and RTLS
