With AirFinder, manufacturing and other industrial and logistics businesses can find and track anything, anywhere. With actionable IoT in manufacturing, AirFinder is digitization for today. AirFinder uses the affordable Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to tell you where your assets are at any time, including tools, parts, equipment, even people. The biggest enemy of meeting your production goals isn’t your processes. It’s not your facilities, your technology, or even your people. It’s missing assets. With just-right precision and no-reliance on WiFi, AirFinder means less infrastructure and big savings in dollars and system complexity.
