The Utilities industry has the need to track and monitor both fixed and portable equipment, or people on a wide variety of sites, ranging from a small pumping station to a major power plant.

Matrix 3D can provide a comprehensive tracking and monitoring system for these situations. Equipment tags may be customised to have external sensors to monitor and report running parameters of the equipment.

Receivers at remote locations can report the arrival of personnel and tags on the equipment brought to site. WiFi equipped PDAs can also communicate to base with details of work carried out.

Proof of attendance and time spent at the remote site is inherent within this process, providing the company with confidence that routine inspections and maintenance are being completed to schedule. A web based application is used to monitor activities and provide a comprehensive range of reports.
