Whether you’re supporting customer-site installation/repair or “sticks and wires” maintenance, repair or overhaul (MRO), field operations must become more cost efficient. You need 360° visibility — automatically tracking not just vehicles, crews and individual techs but high-value equipment, parts and materials transported on every truck and deployed on every job.
While anyone can talk about traditional telematics, only Apptricity’s Telematics Asset Tracking lets you see inventory and materials transported on every truck. The Apptricity-designed, intelligent onboard hardware component is the only one of its kind that provides telecom field operations substantial advantages in terms of efficiency and cost savings.
Apptricity tracks assets primarily via barcode and RFID (radio frequency identification) tags. They work in conjunction with the system’s scanner and customer service vehicles equipped with a purpose-built ID tracking device, called I-Connect, to locate and report against all moving inventory in the field and within the vehicle.
Cloud-based Apptricity Asset tracking software takes and uses this field data integrated with GPS location, asset status and related information to deliver a comprehensive Asset-Based Telematics solution. It can automatically check deployed items against the job’s work order — and auto update inventory levels to prevent stockout service disruptions while ensuring lean, cost-efficient operations. Apptricity solutions integrate with any ERP system and an organization’s existing software platforms and data structures, thanks to the Apptricity’s integration engine, which enables end-to-end intelligent analytics and reporting.
