TRACK CONTAINER MOVEMENTS ACROSS SUPPLY CHAIN
Tracking of returnable container current and historic locations, from supplier to customer and back again.
Returnable transport items (RTIs) could include pallets, intermediate bulk containers, gas cylinders, and kegs.
SmartX automatically monitors the events, such as empty and full status, using event management tools that alert relevant parties of unintended or unexpected events or changes in status
ASSET TRACKING ALERTS
Send out configurable Asset Tracking alerts to multiple users and increase efficient communication.
Email and message alerts can be configured in order to effectively communicate and convey the required message.
SCHEDULE BOTH ONE-TIME AND RECURRING MAINTENANCE
Configure the frequency, start/end date/time, and the added feature to perform/log these events with uploaded pictures to provide a complete audit trail. Generate Reports on Maintenance Events.
Add a floor map in the building where you can break it into different locations.
SMARTX HUB ANALYTICS
With serialization, an item unique serial number applies to every item in the master database. Such granular identification can enhance product visibility, improve data accuracy, and improve decision making throughout the company’s supply chain.
Reporting and analytics component, delivers detailed reporting, KPIs, business intelligence dashboards, and advanced analytics.
LOCATION SENSING RFID-IOT READERS
Assets can be tracked with great read speed (up to 500 items identified per second) when moved in both directions when automated readers are mounted in ceilings, facilities exit or entry doors, elevator banks, server room, gates or logistics portal door locations.
SMARTX RFID MOBILE APLICATION
Management and user interface of mobile computing devices inside and outside the network to gain access and provide data for workflows while in the field.
Improved operational efficiency through automated data discovery and automated logistics transactions.
Higher customer satisfaction resulting from more accuracy and speed in shipping, receiving, and handling operations.
HANDHELD RFID READERS & SCANNERS
The SmartX Portable Handheld RFID Reader is primarily used for tracking orders pick-ups and deliveries, receiving materials and taking a physical inventory, but the portable device may also be used for adding information with photos and signatures.
Do You Know Where Your Assets Are?
A common requirement is for companies to track mobile assets that would originate in their facility, get shipped to a trading partner’s facility, and then
return. Examples of returnable transport items (RTIs) could include pallets, intermediate bulk containers, gas cylinders, and kegs.
SmartX HUB is a solution ideally suited to meet the challenges of RTI asset management, enabling the real-time tracking of each individual RTI asset – from the moment it leaves your facility to the moment it is returned, again and agai
track container movement using RFID
SmartX HUB Real-time Asset Management Platform (SmartX Hub) is a suite of software RFID-based tracking system developed to facilitate planning, logistics, and analytics for container movements, enabled by Internet of Things (IoT).</br>
SmartX HUB platform works across all equipment, all assets, and all industries, across the multiple sites, and across the fleet. This cloud platform automatically count inbound and outbound items as they pass through dock doors.
The Challenge of Managing Returnable Assets
Returnable transport items (RTIs) are key elements for enabling a smooth flow of goods throughout supply chains. Despite their importance, RTIs can be prone to high loss and breakage rates.
Today’s RTI(s) management processes are rather inefficient and are based on estimates about when, where and how RTIs are utilized. This limited visibility inevitably causes the involved parties to feel less responsible for the proper management of RTIs.
As a consequence, inefficiencies created by a single party can result in a significant cost burden for the whole supply chain.

SmartX HUB® RTITrack Platform - Asset Location and Monitoring
TRACK & MANAGE YOUR RETURNABLE ASSETS AND ITEMS WITH RFID
How does It Work?
Manage all of your enterprise assets across multiple locations
The SmartX solution also manages the containers’ traceability. It provides an aggregated view of container location and movement, manages reconciliations and exceptions along with identifying choke points to enable pre-emptive action.
The software also handles communications with the warehouse, supplier, and plant, and initiates and expedites workflows proactively to avoid bottlenecks. The ability to track and trace the reusable containers provided the data the client needed to improve its inventory management and cut costs in every corner of the process.
SmartXHub enables RTI(s) tracking, in real-time, of when items enter or leave and area, such as maintenance room or a centralized distribution area.
The system automatically alerts relevant staff upon shortage or surplus of RTI in an area. The system knows exactly when the minimum quantity of RTI or supplies has been reached, so it can automatically re-order more.
Keeping track of maintenance and repair records is difficult but Smartx RFID Platform eliminates these challenges.
As assets move through maintenance and repair processes, passive RFID tags automatically identify them, track the process, and maintain full records.
The ability to integrate and then analyze the maintenance data shows the client how to optimize its business process and stop the financial leakage.
Displays facility map views of specific assets or groups of assets from a Web-based application and handheld devices.
Visualize your operations with customizable maps powered by the collection and transmission of your items data in real time.
The Smartx HUB solution gives you total visibility to where and how each asset is being used, enabling you to optimize asset workflow and achieve real-time PAR level visibility and more efficient asset management for high-demand and highly mobile assets.
It’s the most efficient possible use of your resources while ensuring the best customer experience.
A complete set of tools for integration with third-party applications (ERP, WMS, EAM, Transportation Management Systems, quality management systems, etc.), including an open REST API and Web Services is standard.
Asset location and status data can be integrated into existing Enterprise Information systems. These systems can be automatically populated with location and status data from SmartXHub.
Smartx Hub® has sophisticated technology not only tracks in real-time but also manage the in and out of user-defined area/zone-fences, leveraging a simple, cost-effective architecture.
Path history, heat maps, and predictive analysis can be used to track history of the movement, thus bringing significant insights into your environment.
RTITrack provides custom reports module. Reports can be Excel, PDF, or CSV format, depending on your needs. Web Reporting allows access to stock information online via a web browser on any smartphone or computer.
This web-based inventory reporting feature only requires access to a PC or smartphone with a web browser and access to the Internet. RTITrack delivers standard reporting including: Exception Report ; Matching Report ; Lost Inventory ; Total Inventory ; Moved Assets
The SmartX returnables asset management application generates a variety of important alerts whenever things do not happen as planned.
Typical examples of alerts and escalations are that a given returnable container has not moved in the system for a certain number of days.
This can trigger an inquiry when containers are shipped to a supplier, but do not return in time.
Software Suite for IoT Tracking
Smartx HUB’s software utilizes data sourced from a wide variety of devices and sensors simultaneously to actively manage the state, location, ownership, and flow of assets and inventory to drive business processes and efficiencies. Our Solution provides a higher level of operational insight over inventory quantity and location, par levels, and equipment process cycle status with powerful, visually-driven analytics. Smartx HUB Asset Visibility gives staff a data-driven platform to manage, monitor and understand asset allocation. That includes par levels, asset utilization, shrinkage, and inventory status. This gives management the opportunity to make strategic decisions to increase ROI by reducing loss and shrinkage.
