Numerex Corp, a provider of on demand and interactive M2M solutions, and Cascade Engineering, a manufacturer serving a wide range of verticals, have announced a collaborative effort for the development and implementation of an asset management solution for the solid waste and recycling market.
The X-Tracker provides geographic visibility, tracking, and management of remote assets, such as roll-offs, used in the collection, transportation, and disposal of solid waste. Detailed information and a wide range of metrics around utilization of the asset are supplied through use of the X-Tracker product.
This is accomplished through the combination of Numerex’s supply chain management solution including: smart devices, intelligent network services and application framework built around Numerex FAST, the company’s service delivery platform. This will work in conjunction with Cascade Engineering’s Xtreme RFID business’ expertise in the design, engineering and manufacturing of rugged RFID tags that meet the stringent requirements of the solid waste industry.
Data collected includes dwell times, asset movement, patterns and cycle loop times, real-time asset location and expected movement patterns. In addition, customers have access to tools that support long-life device management and a flexible system configuration to match enterprise business rules, metrics and management.
