Never Lose Sight of Your Tools and Equipment Again

When tools and equipment go missing, employees have to adjust or attempt to work around the disruption . These situations can occur repetitively and cause delays in production time as well as cost the company money for warehousing, production, and labor, to name a few.

With Link Labs’ AirFinder, companies can reduce or eliminate wasted costs and production downtime by tracking equipment and tools in real time. Companies can also ensure that high value equipment is well maintained as AirFinder sends alerts when calibration or inspections are needed.

Why should companies track equipment and tools using an RTLS?

Location tracking technology is beneficial in many ways. Here are some ways that your company can integrate equipment/tool tracking devices into your workflow.

  • Tool & Equipment Usage Monitoring

    Allows contractors to be prepared when maintenance or replacements are due. This is also beneficial for rental equipment to ensure that customers are getting charged based on usage, and not time.
  • Process Optimization

    Location data can be used to optimize processes, which can have major implications for the company’s bottom line. AirFinder can monitor time spent running heavy equipment on a job site. This information helps cut costs by ensuring equipment is rented only for the time actually needed/used.
  • Theft Monitoring & Prevention

    Theft can occur in any workplace. With an equipment tracking device like AirFinder, you can be notified immediately if something is moved during any time of day, and also if it leaves a specific area or zone.
  • Ensure Employee Safety

    By integrating location tracking technology into employee and visitor badges, you can easily automate SMS alerts if they enter a restricted area. A RTLS is also valuable in times of evacuation to ensure everyone is safe and accounted for.
