Venture Research Solution

Venture Research's Surface Trak™ automatically tracks tool usage and saves time and money by improving productivity, efficiently and compliance for manufacturing operations. The Surface Trak™ actually embeds the tool tracking on the manufacturing work surface tracking tools where they are being used. Without the standard checkout and return process, the Surface Trak™ System automatically assigns the tool out to the person picking up the tool from the work surface and then stores tool usage time. The automatic process not only improves efficiency, it also provides valuable information that can be used to optimize maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) reporting, tool inventory. Overall profitability is increased with staff accountability, higher productivity and reduced tool hoarding.

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.
