An end-to-end tracking platform, Mesh Systems' Corporate Asset Auditing & Tracking solution helps organizations easily track and manage the assets used by employees, and if necessary, recover them, including desktop and laptop computers and associated office equipment, scientific and medical devices, tools, and diagnostic and test equipment. The investment in these assets can be substantial and losing track of them or having to replace them because of damage and shrinkage can be costly.
The Mesh Systems solution tags each asset, using a low-cost Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon, then creates a BLE mesh network to track each asset within buildings and facilities. The tags can be purpose-built or purchased off-the-shelf in order to satisfy differing demands of tag size, range of communication, battery life, and environmental conditions (like moisture or temperature). By leveraging standards-based BLE, the Mesh Systems provisioning and micro-locator app can be used to set up disparate asset tags and onboard them to the system, while also aids in locating assets in real-time.
Solution users can important system data directly into existing ERP and asset management systems or create enterprise-specific reports and dashboards in Power BI, which provides visibility into the breadth of monitoring assets, their use, location, and whether they’ve been returned to inventory or assigned to another user.
Key benefits and features include:
Low cost: Easily and affordably track valuable assets and worker property, using widely available commodity assets tags (i.e. Google Eddystone beacon formats). Then use beacons, BLE mesh and cellular cloud connectivity to continually track and monitor assets.
Increases visibility: Provides persistent visibility and auditability of assets, where they’re located, users, and whether assets were put back into inventory or assigned to another user. Also provides optional exception-based alerts to improve awareness of potential issues, such as an expensive piece of test equipment being left at a customer site or relocated from a research facility.
Reduces operating costs: Minimizes the need for manual inventorying and record keeping, discourages theft with a digital tracking tag, makes it faster to find misplaced or stolen assets, and reduces the need to purchase replacement equipment.
