Interactive machine-to-machine enterprise solutions leader Numerex Corp., and global manufacturer Cascade Engineering, have announced their collaboration for the development and implementation of a solid waste and recycling market asset management solution.
The companies say 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.
“Our partnership with Numerex reflects our focus on integrated solutions and full system approach to the waste and recycling market,” said Mike Lewis, leader of Cascade's Xtreme RFID business, in a statement to media. “Through this innovative asset tracking solution, we not only collect data, but also provide related in-depth analysis in order to efficiently guide our customers' decisions.”
Detailed information and a wide range of metrics around utilization of the asset are supplied through use of the X-Tracker product, Numerex says. 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.
“Cascade's commitment to deploying a comprehensive suite of products and services resonates well with our end-to-end strategy," said Jeff Newman, senior VP of business development at Numerex. “Our new supply chain management solution goes way beyond periodical asset location. The insight and metrics that it provides allow customers to create value added services while improving the productivity of their assets. This is both a revenue generating and cost saving proposition.”
