Thursday 13th of November 2014

For the first time in history there are more active mobile and M2M connections in the world than there are people on the planet. Digital analyst GSMA Intelligence’s real-time device tracker estimates that there are now more than 7.28 billion active mobile connections globally compared to 7.20 billion humans as per the US Census Bureau’s world population clock. What is more, these gadgets are multiplying 5 times faster than we are. These intriguing statistics are not just about smartphones.

Media release: Relegen releases new video showcasing assetDNA’s RFID capabilities for managing mission-critical assets

Tuesday 16th of September 2014

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 16 SEPTEMBER, 2014 – Relegen, a leading supplier of people and technology to asset-intensive industries, has just released a fourth new video showcasing assetDNA’s capabilities for the tracking and management of mission-critical assets such as weapons, protective equipment, search and rescue gear, and other items managed by armouries and supply departments.

The secure and timely management of key assets is vital for many organisations, especially those operating in industries such as defence, policing, corrections, borders and security, and emergency response services. Achieving this, however, can be a significant challenge with manual, disparate, disconnected systems. Relegen’s new video shows how assetDNA, a fully-integrated software-tagging-mobile solution, helps organisations automate these processes, enhance decision-making and provide certainty on the chain-of-custody for mission-critical assets.
