Ubisense and Skillweb launch pre-integrated precise real time location system for effective warehouse management
Cambridge – 5 May 2009
Ubisense, the world leader in precise real-time location systems, together with Skillweb, a recognised UK leader for logistics support systems, announce a partnership
and immediate availability of purpose-built applications for the UK Transport and Logistics market
“The challenge of acquiring reliable location data on assets and equipment in complex warehouse layouts has been a major obstacle, and has so far prevented substantial improvements in productivity″ says Paul Ridden, Managing Director of Skillweb. “We have been searching for a solution that could reliably find individual pallets, fork-lifts, scanners or people and track their movements in real-time. Having evaluated many systems that claim to do so, we were delighted to see Ubisense installations that really work and are reliably accurate – right down to 6 inches.”
Using the precision and reliability of the Ubisense Solution allows Skillweb to track individual asset locations and trace their movements anywhere within the warehouse, in 3D. This allows Skillweb to design much more sophisticated solutions for customers who want the flexibility of a warehouse management system without relying on a fixed network of RFID readers and locations. By simply integrating with Skilweb’s standard track and trace software, the Ubisense System can be deployed quickly, with minimal equipment, and maintain a very flexible approach across the whole warehouse/depot environment.
Skillweb has invested in a test laboratory installation at its Headquarters in High Wycombe where the system has been extensively tested with real operational requirements. Customers are invited to bring their business challenges to the test lab and experience the technology first hand. Skillweb is integrating the technology with its portfolio of systems in order to extend the range of solutions available to customers such as DHL, Air Products, British Telecom, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man Post offices.
