Indoor/Outdoor Positioning and Tracking

In our fast-moving world, knowing the locations of the people you rely on is critical. GPS can pinpoint them outdoors, but satellite signals are often unreliable indoors, blocked by walls or other structures. Something else is needed: our Indoor/Outdoor Positioning and Tracking solution, developed jointly with ZONITH.

A positioning and tracking system helps you to get the right resource to the right place at the right time ā€“ all fully visible from your office. Indoor Bluetooth beacons combined with GPS enable the real-time tracking, reporting and recording of each personā€™s location and status.

When an emergency call is received from a radio, an alert is automatically triggered. Positional information can then be used to provide rapid assistance. Similarly, an alert is triggered when an employee enters an area that is restricted or unrelated to their duties. And after the immediate needs of an incident have been addressed, our solution also provides support for documentation and response improvement.

This solution delivers rapid and sustainable improvements in safety and efficiency while reducing overheads ā€“ plus the ability to audit your field staff and assets.
