No two asset tracking needs are the same

Why it makes sense to have different asset tracking technologies on offer!

At Favendo, we have been dealing with indoor positioning using BLE and other short-range technologies since 2014. We have rolled out the first nationwide Beacon installation. We have equipped airports in Germany, shopping centers in France and mines in Chile. Maybe six years doesn’t seem like too long a time to you. But the Beacon standard was only introduced in 2014. And that means we’re in it from the beginning! What we have learned during this time is that glue is not the best way to install Beacons in hot conditions. But above all, we have learned that no two Asset Tracking Use Cases are alike. No positioning use case is like the other.

Asset tracking in a production facility requires different technology than asset tracking in a mine. So why use the same?

A clinic operator has different requirements than a cruise operator. Retailers want to satisfy different needs than a stadium operator. We know this because we have installed systems in all these industries. Yes, especially on cruise ships. But it gets wilder: Often the different needs combine in a single application. In an industrial facility, for example, it can be important to position in the sub-meter range in some halls, while in other areas an approach of two meters or even just room-accurate asset tracking is sufficient.

It does not make sense to satisfy this huge variety of applications and needs with just one system. Because that would mean making compromises at some point. We do not want to make these compromises and therefore we do not offer our customers just a one-size-fits-all system. On the contrary, our portfolio includes various methods for positioning and tracking assets and people. For this purpose we have entered into partnerships with the best in their field.
