So, you have decided it is time for your manufacturing or logistics company to invest in an industrial asset tracking solution! While there are numerous reasons for your company to implement asset tracking, the decision to do so is typically driven by one basic need - having critical assets that must be protected. Making the right choice of an asset tracking solution doesn’t always have to be complicated. Here are four questions to ask yourself to select the right solution! 

Is it Sustainable?

A sustainable asset tracking solution generally would place a strong emphasis on protecting the environment. The provider of this solution would ensure that efforts are being made to reduce and mitigate environmental impact and address other environmental issues, such as reducing air pollution, reducing energy consumption, and preventing waste.

Link Labs strongly emphasizes making the world of IoT and asset tracking an environmentally friendly place. Our company has partnered with Battery Recyclers of America to allow users to recycle used AirFinder batteries. Our solution promotes sustainability through long-lasting battery life, reducing the amount of harmful emissions released, monitoring the cold chain, preventing waste, reducing energy consumption, and our ability to track returnable crates and pallets

Is it Affordable?

Is the asset tracking solution that you are currently looking at the most affordable solution on the market? Does the solution provider go the extra mile to ensure that their product remains affordable? How long will my asset tracking solution last before maintenance is required? When searching for an affordable asset tracking solution, these are questions that you must ask yourself. With an affordable asset tracking solution, there are two main factors to consider - system cost and battery life. Each technology type comes with distinct benefits, and choosing which technology suits your business considerably plays an important role in the price. Ultimately, the goal for any company searching for an asset tracking solution is to choose the right solution for your company while remaining within a reasonable budget. Long-lasting battery life is the second crucial component of an affordable asset tracking solution. Not only does having long-lasting battery life affect battery replacement costs, but also, it is an essential part to keep workplace processes flowing seamlessly. The longer the battery life, the less often you have to change the battery, leading to efficient workflows. 

Link Labs products have proven to be the most affordable asset tracking solutions for companies because we have decreased tag costs while increasing battery life. Our asset tracking tags contain long-lasting batteries that secure users from experiencing any issues through the help of a software interface to visualize battery life in real-time. For example, our AirFinder OnSite solution can deliver up to 400x the battery life of Bluetooth, resulting in up to 7 years of battery life. With AirFinder, companies can now affordably track production processes or parts of the supply chain in real-time without ever having to worry about your tag's battery life. After all, an asset tracking system is only as good as its battery life!

Is it Flexible?

To be flexible, an asset tracking solution must match the size and budget of your company or else it could potentially hinder overall growth. It is important to ensure that your company chooses a solution that can be flexible with the specific needs of your business. 

Link Labs provides a solution that is flexible to meet the needs of our customers. We understand that our customers need to be provided with unique features and benefits that can aid with the many different use cases that companies have. Therefore, our solution provides different tag options that allow businesses to cater their solution to what they need. For example, our OnSite devices are designed to specifically track assets in indoor environments. But our  AirFinder Everywhere product provides users with a way to track assets indoors, outdoors and on the road. The solution can also be customized to each company’s need to track asset loss, asset theft, compliance, process efficiency, inventory management, or whatever specific need your business has. 

Is it Complex?

No company in search of an asset tracking solution is looking for one that is hard to use and overly complex. Ideally, the asset tracking system you select will be able to integrate with your existing business applications seamlessly. The solution that you choose should also be customizable depending on the industry that you are looking to track. The bottom line is that you should ask yourself how difficult the solution would be to implement into your business. Does the provider of the solution offer help with implementation? How long and how much effort would it take to implement if you are a larger business?

Our solution provides users with easy-to-use, effective, and unrivaled real-time end-to-end industrial IoT solutions for manufacturing and supply chain asset tracking and tagging for businesses of all sizes seamlessly. Link Labs’ products are natively intelligent in every aspect from firmware, sensors, asset tags, and beacons to real-time location data.
