In fact anything where the assets have value and need to be found or tracked
The system uses an approach that keeps track of all the locations that an asset is seen. In each room of the building, a reader is used to monitor the assets. A full history of the asset as it moves around the office can be accessed in the system. There is a facility to add new assets, retire assets and even send alerts to a phone, email address or a PC.
