Intelligent Asset Tracking & Management (IATM)

IATM is an IoT enabled Track & Trace Solution to digitally transform asset life cycle mgmt need of Enterprises

As the number of assets increase for enterprises across verticals, so does the complexity of managing and maintaining these assets. Manual interventions and workflow management is a concern, with major issues observed in managing asset visibility & reducing gaps between actual physical inventory and the system database. There is a need to address the challenges faced by enterprises in optimizing the asset management operations including Tracking and Managing asset's custody information, maximizing utilization of assets, automating inventory management, improving visibility and using single platform for tracking multiple asset types.

HCLTech IATM (Intelligent Asset Tracking & Management) solution addresses the above mentioned issues by enabling monitoring and management of assets across 1. procurement to disposal (acquire-to-retire) life-cycle, 2. tracking & and reporting of location and 3. movement of assets across premises. IATM leverages a range of AWS services from AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Analytics, Amazon RDS as database, and AWS server less services like AWS Lambda to automate inventory management operations. IATM supports a range of IoT sensors, tags and/or tracking technologies (RFID, BLE,GPS, etc.), hence IATM finds its applicability in assets like EUC assets, MRO tools, LSH equipments, warehouse pallets, bins and related items. Enterprises can start digital transformation journey with one type of asset and roll out same application for managing different assets.

  • How it works
  • IATM solution aims to digitally transform asset inventory management process and improve asset visibility. IATM provides asset on-boarding over various technologies like (RFID, BLE, Wi-Fi , GPS) to help track the asset in real time across the every stage of enterprise asset life cycle. It is a complete IoT led asset management solution that provide inventory visibility, asset and custodian information in real-time.

    The tracking technologies and its associated devices play a major role in achieving accuracy and asset life cycle in an enterprise. RFID based handheld device facilitates on On-boarding and auditing of the assets. The RFID led handheld reader communicate seamlessly on Bluetooth and provide a real time data on display panel. Data streaming from HHT to cloud takes place through GSM or WiFi.

    On the other hand the fixed RFID reader, connected on PoE, helps track the movement of an asset and raises notification in an event of any breach (asset moved from one location to another location) occurred. All the data flow from on-premise to cloud happen through secure MQTT messaging protocol.

    RFID and BLE technologies in most cases are sufficient enough to track, trace and monitor the assets locally, while for outdoor tracking GPS play a major role.

    In addition to tracking functionality, platform provides flexibility to define your own attributes and classes for the assets, it helps customers with large volume of enterprise assets to better organize assets based on specific category or application.

    IATM doesn't store any more information about users than their enterprise-specific username handle, which is needed for asset custodian management.

    IATM’s adaptive design gives customers flexibility to deploy the solution without the need to change the existing set of asset tracking technologies deployed. IATM seamlessly integrates and ingests data from third-party products over multiple supported channels.
