MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul)

With the development of the exclusive Surface Reader technology only available through Venture Research, the door opened to dramatically improve the tracking requirements of the MRO industry. Before the Surface Reader, the industry primarily stored equipment and tools in drawer or cabinet configurations requiring personnel to spend time in the morning and evening retrieving and putting away their tools. The Surface Reader technology now allows tools and material to be tracked while it is being used in their work areas. The Surface Reader concept allows any RFID tagged item to be placed anywhere on the surface and it will be read. There is no need to bring back tools to a cabinet or drawer. With the ability now for integrated RFID/BLE technology supported by all Venture Research readers, material and tools can be tracked in the work area but also tracked if they were to be moved from the work area. To round out the solution set for this industry, Venture Research provides traditional RFID drawer and cabinet retrofits but also now the exclusive Surface Readers. Specific equipment and solutions for this industry are:

Surface Readers to cover surfaces up to 4’ x 6’

Hazmat Cabinets

Security and Access systems

Tool Drawer RFID systems

Tool Cabinet RFID systems

RTLS tracking systems (UWB and BLE)

Calibration, Expiration and Tool management software systems 



Venture Research was fortunate to be selected by a top tier trucking company in 2016 to develop a solution for tracking cabs, trailers and personnel for the long haul transportation sector. This led to the development of depot access and departure systems with secure gate control. A sophisticated array of RFID/BLE and sensor equipment automates the check-in and check-out process of transportation equipment. Along with the equipment, Venture Research supplied the enterprise software solution to administer the asset and personnel management for depot control. The specific solutions by Venture Research that are now available for this industry are:

Secure Gate Control

Motion Sensing systems and tailgating control

Venture Research has personnel in the company that were pioneers in the supply chain industry as far back as 1984 when the pursuit of developing the best of breed automated warehouse management solutions was born. Venture Research participated in the development of distribution and 3PL solutions during the heyday of the DOTCOM era which led to a number of fully automated green field distribution centers. In early 2000 the company developed a WCS (warehouse control system) solution that is in use in over 155 distribution centers today. The software solution has been continually refined to meet the needs of the distribution industry as the demand model moved from batch to real time order flow. With a dynamic demand (flex) capability, the system employs sophisticated cubing and aggregating algorithms to optimize workflow and the automation that supports it. Capable of driving pick to light, put to light, voice pick, sortation systems, label printing and RFID encoding and verification systems. Along with the software, Venture Research provides the following equipment and software interfaces to complement the WCS engine:

Outdoor Asset Tracking Devices in use for waste

management application across North America
According to Navigant Research, the global smart waste collection technology market is expected to grow from $57.6 million in 2016 to more than $223.6 million in 2025. For the last seven years, Venture Research has supplied intelligent, autonomous readers and sensors with Cloud computing that has been used by tier 1 logistics customer worldwide for data collection to help manage containers and smart waste collection.
Cloud computing is pushing the “clunky” technology of old off to the wayside and providing more space to hold more information but take up less room. Previous RFID scanners used in the past by waste management haulers were unreliable, didn’t communicate well and were expensive. With Venture Research’s Outdoor Asset Tracking Reader and RFID tagging on containers, machine-to-machine communication allows for a more reliable set of data, according to John Baker.
