Real-time location systems (RTLS) allow you to locate people or enterprise assets in real time. Companies in a variety of industries—from manufacturing to supply chain, hospitality, healthcare, and construction —rely on location information to increase efficiency and safety while reducing costs.
Precision-based RTLS is implemented through either ultra-wide band or WiFi-based technologies. Precision RTLS allows tracking of assets to an exact location, making it useful for applications like inventory management. The drawback is that precision RTLS is expensive and requires a great deal of infrastructure to drive its accuracy. Depending on the technology used, the price of tags could increase as well.
Proximity-based RTLS solutions like AirFinder can accurately pinpoint locations within about 100 square feet, making them ideal for use cases that don’t require exact locations. For example, if you know an X-ray machine or an employee is in room 326, you’ll easily be able to find them. Proximity-based RTLS systems are less expensive, require far less infrastructure, and generally have less expensive tags.

Finding equipment and assets for cleaning, maintenance, compliance, and audits is a breeze when you know where all your assets are.
