One of the biggest trends of 2022 is sustainable technology, and it’s not going away. Sustainability is making its way around at a personal level and now a commercial level. Check out the top blogs we released during our sustainability campaign to get a brief overview of the most important topics we covered!
How Link Labs Promotes Sustainability
In recent years, sustainability has become a major focus among both businesses and consumers. Because of this, we have created our asset tracking solution to be sustainable and promote sustainability among our customers. We’ve done this by creating a tag with a rechargeable battery, extending the battery life of non-rechargeable batteries, and more!
How to Construct a Waste Prevention Plan
If your company wants to be environmentally friendly, one major action you can take is to reduce waste. Reducing waste isn’t always easy, but a real-time location system (RTLS) can help.
Does Cold Chain Monitoring Promote Sustainability?
Waste comes in all forms; money, unused materials, and spoiled foods. When food goes bad during the supply chain, it typically spoils during transportation. One way to prevent spoilage is to monitor the temperature in the trailer so you can take action in case of a broken refrigerator.
The Role of IoT Technology in Sustainability
Some businesses have struggled to figure out how to become more sustainable. In the search, they’ve turned to IoT for help.
How Energy Harvesting is Extending Battery Life in IoT Sensors
Replacing batteries in asset tracking tags is not a fun process. One way to avoid this is to choose either a rechargeable battery or choose a tag with extremely long battery life. In order to extend battery life in tags, a process called energy harvesting has been used.
How Does IoT Prevent Food Waste in Grocery Stores
Groceries stores' success hinges on having good food to sell. If food is spoiled, you have no food to sell and your customers will go somewhere else to shop. IoT sensors have been developed to monitor the temperature of food so you can be alerted when the food’s temperature is starting to rise. IoT sensors can help you address issues before it’s too late.
What is the Future of Global Asset Tracking?
There have been many innovations in asset tracking technology that are leading the future of asset tracking. Between device advancements and sustainability efforts, the future of technology looks exciting.
What is the Future of Agriculture?
Agricultural workers play an important role in society, and that role is laborious. Automation relieves some of the long repetitive tasks they’re in charge of. Automation can come in the form of a big machine that does work for you, or location technology that helps with the cold chain.
How Link Labs AirFinder Preserves Battery Life
Battery replacement can be a pain, especially if you have to replace them often; that’s why we’ve worked hard to extend the battery life of our asset tags up to 7 years.
Beyond Barcodes: Tracking WIP with RTLS
Barcode scanning became a popular way to track inventory in manufacturing plants when pen and paper became unreliable. Now that more technological advancements have been made, companies are wondering if there’s a better way to track their inventory than barcodes.
Evolution of Bluetooth Low Energy
Bluetooth technology has seen many advancements throughout the years. Bluetooth helps companies by providing visibility, security, flexibility, and sustainability.

5 Challenges Rental Companies Can Address with Equipment Tracking
Rental companies face many challenges like losing equipment or keeping up with maintenance. Asset tracking technology can help these companies understand the usage and analytics surrounding the equipment.
Human vs. Machine: The 5 Advantages of Automated Asset Tracking
Automated asset tracking helps manufacturers reduce human error, improve organization, ensure compliance, visualize usage, and save time and money. When it comes to production, sometimes it’s easier to let technology do the work for you.
How to Ensure Regulatory Compliance in Healthcare Logistics
Whether or not you’re in compliance with regulations can affect everything about your business. An easy way to make sure you’re compliant is to implement RTLS. RTLS can help you stay up to date on equipment maintenance and monitor the temperature of sensitive medication.
Top Risks You Face by Not Implementing an IoT Asset Tracking System in Manufacturing
While implementing technology comes with its risks, not implementing technology comes with more risks. Without an asset tracking solution, your company risks losing important tools, increasing waste accumulation, and poor customer service. The best way to avoid these risks is to implement asset tracking.
The Importance of Classifying IoT
Many modern technology terms are thrown around but used for different meanings. Because this led to confusion, experts are starting to classify the use of these terms. IoT is just one term that has sparked confusion; sustainable technology is becoming another increasingly.
How Deep Learning Technology Helps Supply Chain Management
AI has many branches and more are growing. One branch that’s becoming increasingly impactful is deep learning. It’s a form of technology that resembles how humans gain knowledge. Did you know that is can help you better manage your supply chain?
Top 4 Reasons to Utilize Indoor Asset Tracking
As a manufacturer, have you ever considered the reasons to invest in indoor asset tracking? An issue that manufacturers face is bottlenecks during the production process. Having an asset tracking system gives you complete visibility into your production process so you can address any bottlenecks and achieve greater efficiency.
RFID GPS Trackers: Two Technologies, One Solution
Many are familiar with GPS used for location tracking, but on an individual level. What some don’t know is that it’s one of the most, if not the most popular technology used at a commercial level in logistics companies to help reduce the amount of loss during transit.
Supply Chain vs. Logistics: What’s the Difference?
Most companies use supply chain and logistics interchangeably. While most people can understand what’s being referred to within context, they aren’t the same. Logistics is part of the supply chain, involving the storage and transportation of materials within the supply chain.
4 Ways Technology Improves Supply Chains
Every company wants to make sure its supply chains are the best they can be. One way to continually improve your supply chain is by investing in technology. Automation is the number one improvement companies can make; and automation brings a variety of benefits depending on which parts you automate.
Interview with an Engineer: What is XLE, and How Does XLE Work?
Our team had the opportunity to sit down with Link Labs Chief Engineer, Mark Bloechl to discuss our patented technology XLE. Mark gave us a lot of insight into how the technology works and how it’s able to add value to the companies that invest in it.
The 3 Biggest Security Risks to IIoT Devices
Cybersecurity is always a concern when it comes to technology. Some of the largest risks are system-wide security breaches, data transmission disruptions, and a lack of system upgrades; but you can reduce these risks by using an independent network, a complete system, and a mature solution.
