BT Asset Trace

Optimise reusable mobile assets and improve operational efficiency.

BT Asset Trace is a solution that enables organisations to manage RTIs and other mobile re-usable assets. It uses barcodes and/or RFID tags and readers to identify and track each asset within a single closed loop environment – which is not necessarily restricted to your own premises, but can cover your whole supply chain eco-system, from suppliers to customers.

BT Asset Trace helps you to:

Trace and locate mobile assets with information gathered data from individual devices including location, time and date to give you full traceability.

Manage assets with accurate status reports and lifecycle management tools to monitor each asset through its life. You can check the position of any RTI in your supply chain, where it has been, if it is where it should be and what condition it is in.

Maximise your reusable mobile asset base with routing, demand forecasting and planning functionality.

With our earlier system, managing traceability was a bottleneck in our production line, and even led to delays in the delivery of products. Now it is all carried out in real time simultaneously along with the filling of the containers. The system means greater reliability in the delivery of products to our distributors. It also improves the traceability of products, giving us access to data via standard office IT applications.”
