HOW TO TACKLE CRITICAL ISSUES? RTLS HAS THE ANSWER

Systems to locate and track people and assets (RTLS) are revolutionising warehouse management, since they contribute significantly to resolving the main critical issues.

Taking advantage of the potential of cloud computing and the ‘Internet of Things’ combined with technologies like RFID, WiFi, BLE and UWB, the Ubiquicom Logistics Locator Suite, when integrated with the Warehouse Management system, allows a company to take the optimal path towards digitising the warehouse and making goods and operations trackable, with all the attendant advantages in terms of visibility, control, efficiency and cost containment.
