UBIQUICOM’S SOLUTIONS

The Ubiquicom suite is designed for companies with their sights on efficient warehouse management and permits optimal monitoring, localising and managing of critical resources throughout the entire value chain. By combining tracking, distributed sensing and remote control functionalities, the Ubiquicom solutions have as their final objectives:

  • optimising investments in machinery and materials
  • optimising personnel management
  • improving service quality, which means customer satisfaction

KEY FEATURES

TRACKING HANDLING EQUIPMENT, CONTAINERS AND WORKERS

  • Real-time localisation of handling equipment
  • Real-time identification and localisation of pallets, crates, chests and other containers, even in areas without shelving
  • Real-time localisation of workers, whether on foot or using transport equipment
  • Monitoring the status of equipment (loading/unloading) and workers
  • Monitoring distances, routes and work assignments based on position
  • Controlling worker and equipment access to unauthorised areas
  • Tracking routes for retrospective statistical analysis and layout optimisation
  • Real-time integration with the Warehouse Management system

DISTRIBUTED SENSING, REMOTE CONTROL AND CENTRALISED INFORMATION MANAGEMENT

  • Optimising time and costs in pick-and-place operations through smart management, smart job assignments and route optimisation
  • Optimisation of loading/unloading operations (automatic identification of vendors and customers, automatic assignment of loading docks using displays, LEDs and buzzers)
  • Temperature monitoring in cold chains
  • Physical stress monitoring during transport
  • Remote diagnosis and optimisation of maintenance operations
  • Complete warehouse digitisation through the combined, integrated and optimised use of RFID, RTLS and mono/bi-dimensional bar code technologies and related devices (e.g., bar code printers and scanners, RFID readers, WiFi, etc.) integrated with the Warehouse Management system

SAFETY IN WAREHOUSE AREAS AND MERCHANDISE HANDLING

  • Monitoring parameters for handling equipment (battery charges, collisions, malfunctions and fault codes, the approach of conditions that require maintenance, etc.)
  • Real-time speed monitoring with an option to manage different alarms by zone
  • Checking driver identities with ignition locking for unapproved operators
  • Monitoring events like collisions, falls, “man down” events and calls for help for those working on foot
  • Preventing forklift-forklift and forklift-pedestrian collisions
  • Monitoring the use of Personal Protective Equipment

THE ADVANTAGES OF RTLS SOLUTIONS

  • EFFICIENCY

    In using handling equipment, containers and areas for handling and storage

  • MONITORING

    Thanks to real-time integrated operations management in production areas, storage areas and handling areas, and in monitoring environmental conditions

  • SAFETY

    With automatic speed limit checking, collision avoidance systems and monitoring the usage of protective systems and “man down” events

  • DATA

    For report management to help with noting critical issues and waste and to optimise procedures and warehouse layouts
