Setting the Standard
No tracking solution would be complete without a comprehensive set of tags and readers that serve as the central nervous system, sending and receiving updates from the entire operation. Savi has pioneered the development of wide variety of active RFID devices with a broad range of capabilities and features. Additionally, Savi’s open approach to logistics informatics has been a key driver behind Savi partnerships with third-party vendors to deploy and support the broadest array of hardware in the industry.
Savi Tags are built to drive effective and accurate real-time tracking of assets and shipments throughout the global supply chain. Savi Tags enable organizations to access real-time information on the location of assets and shipments, as well as their condition and security status. Savi Tags have been battle tested globally for two decades, and they are what organizations around the world rely on to ensure their mission critical supplies reach their destination. Today, Savi Tags track hundreds of thousands of shipments per year in more than 50 countries across the global supply chain.
Savi Tags support passive and active RFID, GPS, GPRS and Satellite communications.
Savi provides customers with a wide range of fixed and mobile readers specific to each implementation. Fixed readers track items moving through gates and chokepoints or monitor assets within warehouses and yards. The fixed reader then forwards this data to Savi SmartChain or other applications using the SmartChain Developer’s Platform.
The Savi Mobile Reader (SMR) performs similar functions as the Savi Fixed Reader, except that the SMR is designed to connect directly with mobile devices and workstations. SmartChain Mobile Readers are portable devices that on-the-ground personnel use to interact with assets and shipments. SmartChain Edge Applications and Devices capture operational field events such as attaching a tag to an asset, shipping an asset or consolidating a shipment.
For fast implementation or expansion of tracking areas, such as is the case with military deployments, Savi has developed the Savi Portable Deployment Kit (PDK). The hardened transit case protects equipment from water (rain, seawater, humidity, fog, etc.) and from damage if the case is dropped during loading and unloading, or exposed to harsh vibration while being transported over unpaved roads.
The PDKs are operational out of the box with a laptop, mobile device, mobile reader, printer, software and communications equipment included.
