Why You Should Use an RTLS in Healthcare
RTLS technology helps healthcare facilities improve patient care. When using a location tracking system, nurses can spend less time searching for equipment and more time with patients. Knowing the location of equipment also reduces nurses' stress.
The Evolution of Industry 4.0
Transformation has been part of every society. In the US, three major, well-known revolutions have taken place; the first in 1760, the second in 1870, and the third in 1969. Many don’t know we’re living in a fourth revolution now. This one is technology focused and known as Industry 4.0. This blog breaks down the history of these evolutions and where we are now.

Can Logistics Companies Switch From Passive RFID to Active RFID?
RFID technology falls into one of two categories. Passive or active. Most companies are familiar with passive RFID but aren’t completely thrilled with the results and are considering a switch to active RFID.
Hyperautomation: How it’s Transforming Business Processes
Hyperautomation is an approach that increases businesses’ throughput. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and other technologies are combined to improve data results and process efficiencies.
What is the Difference Between M2M and IoT?
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is done through a wired or wireless connection. IoT is a more widely known term that falls under M2M as a whole. M2M and IoT overlap in terms of technology and usage. Take a look at how the two technologies compare.
4 Different Asset Tracking Technologies
Multiple technologies can be used for location tracking. These include Time of Flight (ToF), Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA), Angle of Arrival (AoA), and Received Signal Strength (RSS). These techniques provide different levels of accuracy since they all determine location differently.
Breaking Down Geolocation Techniques for RTLS
Geolocation is a method of using systems or devices to determine location. Many consumers and businesses use at least one form of geolocation; GPS, WiFi, Cellular, or Bluetooth. Each provides unique benefits and varying location accuracy.
Top IT Tools that can be Utilized in Asset Tracking
IT tools have been used by companies to enhance existing processes. Companies have invested in two main tools: project management software and asset tracking software. Both of these tools exist to improve workflows and reduce miscommunication among employees.
From Ideation to Implementation: How AirFinder Deployments Work
A company's process to implement an asset tracking system has a few steps. The first is deciding whether you need a tracking system and evaluating solution options. The educational part of the process can take time, but you don’t have to do it on your own.
The Best GPS Tracking Device for Heavy Equipment
Tracking heavy equipment helps companies reduce theft, monitor maintenance, and improve overall process efficiency. GPS technology tracks the company's equipment. There are a few GPS tracking device options to choose from. The best way to decide which device to choose is to evaluate what you need from a system.
5 Factors to Consider When Choosing an RTLS Provider
Before choosing an asset tracking system, you have to evaluate your options compared to your needs. What you’re tracking with the system determines a lot of variables. For example, if you are looking to track inventory moving in and out of zones, you don’t need accuracy within centimeters. This means you can choose a less expensive system and scale for additional use.
3 Ways to Mitigate Security Risks of Critical Medical Devices
The security risks that come with the use of IoT in healthcare deter some from using it, even if it ultimately benefits them. You may not know that you can mitigate these risks with the right solution.
