NCR, a business technology and services provider, and Ubisense, a company engaged in real-time location systems, have signed an agreement to jointly market an asset management and analysis solution for the manufacturing marketplace.
Under the agreement, the companies are offering Ubisense’s precise real-time location system (RTLS) with NCR’s TransitionWorks automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) software. The combination of these products enables manufacturers to manage assets throughout their entire facility, improving operational efficiency, allowing real-time audit and delivering cost savings.
The joint solution enables the management of assets such as production tooling and material-handling equipment throughout a facility, instantaneously recording events and transmitting actionable operational messages based on business rules configured by the customer.
NCR TransitionWorks delivers the asset information and historical performance data to the manufacturer, allowing completion of audits and overall inventory tracking. The end-to-end solution provides a real-time view of the manufacturing floor for the first time and, significantly, enables compliance with relevant requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley accounting rules.
