In 2021, Link Labs' flagship AirFinder OnSite IoT asset tracking platform and its AirFinder SuperTag IoT device were awarded eight (8) total awards for innovations in asset tracking in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, warehousing and logistics.
"We're excited our technology is resonating so strongly in the commercial IoT asset tracking market and being recognized as true breakthroughs by our industry peers," said Bob Proctor, founder and CEO of Link Labs. "As a company, we're driven by advanced software engineering and innovation and we now have more than 25 patents for our technological innovations that power how we help keep track of assets every step of the way with ease and affordability. Our technology can work for any business, no matter the size, and we're looking forward to an even brighter 2022."
AirFinder OnSite launched in March 2021 as Link Labs' next-generation IoT asset tracking platform for indoor environments for dramatically improving accuracy and affordability. The first enterprise IoT platform to achieve up to meter-level location accuracy, AirFinder OnSite makes it possible for companies of all sizes to track thousands to millions of high-value assets with an unprecedented high degree of accuracy, unmatched power efficiency and affordable cost.
AirFinder OnSite's recognitions in 2021 include:
- 2021 IoT Platform of the Year, Mobile Breakthrough Awards

AirFinder OnSite features six patented innovations at the firmware level that cover an array of technical challenges that need to be met for an enterprise-grade solution – including ranging methodology, interference avoidance, location algorithm, power efficiency and scalability to high-tag densities. Together, these innovations make it the most precise Bluetooth-based location technology available.
Link Labs' AirFinder SuperTag is a first-of-its-kind commercial IoT tracking device that blends four different technologies – GPS/GNSS, WiFi location lookup, Cell ID and Link Labs' AirFinder Indoor Positioning Network – to provide continuous, end-to-end visibility of assets in both indoor and outdoor environments. It seamlessly transitions from one technology to another, as needed and depending upon conditions, and allows for flexible configurations, based on the unique requirements of each specific application. SuperTag can be deployed in minutes and is uniquely power-optimized to last years in the field without needing to change batteries.
AirFinder SuperTag's recognitions in 2021 include:
- 2021 Best New Business Technology Product for Supply Chain Management, American Business Awards
