About The Wireless Asset Net(r)

The Wireless Asset Net improves productivity in manufacturing and distribution operations by establishing accountability for use of equipment, ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time, streamlining work flow through automated messaging, and providing management with unique metrics on-and controls over-equipment utilization. The system also improves workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators and providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists. In addition, the system reduces maintenance expenses by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems in real time, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than on a calendar basis, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment.
