Ubisense and Skillweb launch pre-integrated precise real time location system for effective warehouse management

Ubisense, the world leader in precise real-time location systems, together with Skillweb, a recognised UK leader for logistics support systems, announce a partnership and immediate availability of purpose-built applications for the UK Transport and Logistics market

Cambridge, UK, 4 May 2009 - 'The challenge of acquiring reliable location data on assets and equipment in complex warehouse layouts has been a major obstacle, and has so far prevented substantial improvements in productivity' says Paul Ridden, Managing Director of Skillweb. 'We have been searching for a solution that could reliably find individual pallets, fork-lifts, scanners or people and track their movements in real-time. Having evaluated many systems that claim to do so, we were delighted to see Ubisense installations that really work and are reliably accurate - right down to 6 inches.

Using the precision and reliability of the Ubisense Solution allows us to track individual asset locations and trace their movements anywhere within the warehouse, in 3D. This allows us to design much more sophisticated solutions for our customers who want the flexibility of a warehouse management system that doesn't rely on a fixed network of RFID readers and locations. By simply integrating with our standard track and trace software we can deploy the Ubisense System quickly, with minimal equipment, and maintain a very flexible approach across the whole warehouse/depot environment'.

Skillweb have invested in a test laboratory installation at their Headquarters in High Wycombe where they have extensively tested the system with real operational requirements. Customers are invited to experience the technology first hand. Skillweb are integrating the technology with their portfolio of systems in order to make it available for their customers such as DHL, Air Products, British Telecom, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man Post offices
