Presentation Overview

Throughout the world, organisations with portable assets – such as equipment and machinery – are turning to location technology to better manage property throughout their premises.

Recent advances in indoor mapping technologies have now made asset tracking, indoor navigation and resource monitoring capabilities a reality within buildings and complexes.

Businesses are able to capture, analyse and gain insights from indoor data through the use of online applications – making indoor tracking an essential tool to manage and optimise internal environments.

By gaining access to this type of operational data – in near real-time – businesses can easily identify risk, act with accuracy and immediacy, and provide easy-to-understand navigational assistance to those in need.

For example, if a hazardous substance is in close proximity to critical infrastructure, the dangerous material can be identified and avoided or removed.

Using asset tracking, life-saving pieces of equipment can also be quickly located, making the technology widely valuable in times of emergency – in a hospital, for instance, where locating a defibrillator, or even a human asset such as a doctor, is essential for critical patient care.

In addition to asset monitoring, indoor mapping technology can also be used to determine the location of people, both anonymously and as identified users – with navigational applications able to direct visitors through the maze of corridors and levels which feature within hospitals, university campuses and entertainment venues.

Being able to access real-time data in an easy-to-deploy and meaningful way is set to transform how people manage all kinds of businesses – be it a warehouse full of stock, a retail store, transport hub or medical facility.

By reducing the time needed to gather and analyse data about people’s movements and asset locations, improvements can be made to the day-to-day administration of an indoor environment – saving organisations time and money, while increasing security and safety for visitors and staff.
