Award-winning RFID solution lands first US contract
13 Oct 2021
A leading international asset management consultancy, service and software provider has secured its first US contract for an award-winning asset tracking and management of change software solution.
Add Energy’s innovative AssetVoice™ solution has been selected by a Houston-based chemical decontamination company to track and manage critical equipment required for seamless and safe servicing of chemical plants and refineries. As well as addressing workflow management issues and invoicing support, the real-time tracking system will provide an additional layer of safety assurance by helping the team to ensure equipment being deployed has been maintained correctly, is certified and safe for their servicing team to use in an ultra-high temperature application.
Built-in automated change management is facilitated by an Internet of Things (IoT) network that connects the RFID tags, readers, scanners, sensors to the software through the cloud to enable pre-described condition changes to be managed automatically and for the relevant systems or people to be updated with the condition change data or notification.
Using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and sensors designed to withstand the high temperatures and vibrations that this equipment will be subject to, AssetVoice™ can track and manage the entire journey of the company’s assets to optimize availability, integrity, and efficiency. Its cybersecurity credentials are assured thanks to expertise sourced from the software engineering centre of excellence at University of Salford in the UK, which is incorporated into this agile solution.
Susan Steyn, Vice President of Add Energy in North America said: “We are delighted to roll out our cutting-edge product in the US for the first time, and we look forward to helping unlock efficiencies across our clients accounting, operations, maintenance and warehousing departments.
“The turnkey solution offered by AssetVoice™ and the team at Add Energy is one of the many reasons why AssetVoice™ delivers seamless digital transformation. This is enabled by our team who manage the entire process on our client’s behalf, from sourcing the most appropriate RFID hardware tags and readers required for the assets and sites, to installing them on site and connecting the hardware to the software system.
“The result is accurate, real-time and reliable data which can be trusted; alleviating pain-points and giving users confidence to make informed, data driven decisions.”
