Numerex and Cascade partner to provide an asset management solution for the solid waste market
Numerex Corp, a provider of on-demand and interactive M2M enterprise solutions, and Cascade Engineering announced their collaboration for the development and implementation of an asset management solution for the solid waste and recycling market.
“Through this innovative asset tracking solution, we not only collect data, but also provide related in-depth analysis in order to efficiently guide our customers’ decisions,” said Mike Lewis, leader of Cascade’s Xtreme RFID business.
The X-Tracker provides geographic visibility, tracking, and management of remote assets, such as roll-offs, used in the collection, transportation, and disposal of solid waste.
This is accomplished through the combination of Numerex’s supply chain management solution including smart devices, intelligent network services and application framework built around Numerex FAST®, the Company’s Service Delivery Platform, and Cascade Engineering’s Xtreme RFID business’ expertise in the design, engineering and manufacturing of rugged RFID tags that meet the stringent requirements of the solid waste industry.
Detailed information and a wide range of metrics around utilisation of the asset are supplied through use of the X-Tracker product.
Data collected includes dwell times; asset movement, patterns and cycle loop times; real-time asset location and expected movement patterns.
“Our new supply chain management solution goes way beyond periodical asset location. The insight and metrics that it provides allow customers to create value added services while improving the productivity of their assets,” said Jeff Newman, senior vice president of business development at Numerex.
In addition, customers have access to tools that support long-life device management and a flexible system configuration to match enterprise business rules, metrics and management.
