Our Asset Tracking System Development Process

Requirement Analysis

This initial stage is all about understanding the specific needs of your business. It involves determining what kinds of assets you need to track (like equipment, vehicles, or products), the scale of tracking (number of items, size of the area), and any special requirements like environmental conditions the assets might be exposed to. This stage’s goal is tailoring the system to your business and involves discussions with various stakeholders such as IT staff, operations managers, and potential system users to gather a comprehensive understanding of what the ATS needs to achieve.

System Design

In this stage, the Devox team designs the overall architecture of the ATS. This includes planning how the tracking devices, such as RFID tags or GPS trackers, will integrate with the tracking software, and ensuring the user interface is easy to use. It's also important to consider how the system will maintain data security and comply with relevant regulations. The system design stage sets the foundation for how the ATS will function and how users will interact with it.

Hardware Selection/Development

This stage involves selecting or developing the hardware that will be used for tracking the assets. Depending on the chosen technology (like RFID, GPS, Bluetooth), this could involve choosing the right type of tags, sensors, and readers. The key is to select hardware that is compatible with the type of assets being tracked and the environment they are in, and to source this hardware from reliable suppliers.

Software Development

In this phase, the software that will run the ATS is developed. This includes the backend database where asset data will be stored, the tracking logic that will interpret signals from the tracking hardware, and the front-end interface that users will interact with. The software needs to be customized to handle the specific types of data and tracking required by your business, and it should integrate smoothly with any other business systems you use, like ERP or CRM systems.

Integration

Once the hardware and software are ready, they need to be integrated into a cohesive system. This involves ensuring that the hardware can communicate effectively with the software, and that the ATS can exchange data with other business systems. During this step, the Devox engineers ensure data flows seamlessly across all components of the ATS and the system functions as a unified whole.

Testing

Testing is a multi-faceted stage where the complete ATS is rigorously tested to ensure it works as intended. This includes functional testing to verify that all features operate correctly, stress testing to ensure the system can handle high loads or demanding conditions, and user acceptance testing to confirm the system meets the needs and expectations of its end-users. This stage is vital for identifying and rectifying any issues before the system goes live.

FAQ

What makes custom asset tracking software different from off-the-shelf solutions?

The ready-made asset management and tracking system is indeed a better choice for medium-sized businesses because buying one means spending fewer costs and not having to wait long for the development to finish. However, a custom asset tracking system will be a winning choice for large enterprises or those with unique workflow or system requirements: the very benefit of customization is the possibility to fully tailor the system to the business’s individual needs. Moreover, custom software retains your company’s copyright, which makes it possible for further commercialization and distribution.

How does asset tracking software address the issue of asset loss or theft?

In this extent, ATS’s primary tool is providing real-time visibility and control over assets with technologies like GPS, RFID, or Bluetooth to monitor the assets’ location constantly. In the event of unauthorized movement or removal, the system can immediately alert managers, enabling quick response to potential thefts. Geofencing features further enhance security by triggering alerts if assets move outside predefined boundaries. Additionally, the historical data provided by the software can assist in identifying patterns of loss or theft, aiding in preventive measures. This continuous monitoring and instant alert system not only deters theft but also significantly increases the chances of recovering lost or stolen assets.

Is it possible to integrate asset tracking software with other business systems?

Yes, integrating an asset tracking system with other business software is not only possible but highly beneficial. It allows for seamless data sharing and synchronization, raising the quality of everyday operations.

For instance, integration with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems can align asset data with financial and operational processes, while linking with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems can improve service delivery and customer satisfaction. Integration with supply chain management systems directly influences inventory visibility and control, and connecting with maintenance management systems automates upkeep schedules.

How does a custom asset tracking system enhance decision-making?

In a couple of sentences, a custom asset tracking system turns data into actionable intelligence, driving productivity and supporting strategic business growth. It provides real-time and accurate asset data, which is crucial for informed business decisions. It also offers detailed insights into asset utilization, location, and performance, enabling businesses to optimize their use and reduce inefficiencies.

Such a set of features makes scheduling maintenance proactively based on actual usage possible, preventing costly downtime. Analyzing historical data trends aids in forecasting and strategic planning, improving asset lifecycle management. Additionally, custom systems can be tailored to alert management to critical issues, guaranteeing taking measures when necessary.

How long does it take to develop an asset tracking system depending on its type?

The timeline of any given enterprise tracking system development strongly depends on its type. Devox handles GPS, NFC/Bluetooth, RFID, IoT-based and barcode-scanning ATSs.

Developing a GPS asset tracking system can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. The complexity of integrating GPS hardware with software and the need for thorough testing, especially for outdoor tracking, can influence the timeline.

NFC/Bluetooth tracking systems generally take about 2 to 4 months to develop. The development time is shorter thanks to the more straightforward nature of close-range technology and the ease of integrating with mobile devices.

RFID industrial fleet tracking systems can be developed within 3 to 6 months. The time frame depends on factors like the range of RFID technology (active vs. passive), the complexity of integration with existing systems, and the scalability requirements.

The IoT-based software is usually the most complex and can take 6 to 12 months to develop. The integration of various sensors, robust network requirements, and sophisticated data analytics platforms contribute to a longer development timeline.

Barcode-based systems are often the quickest to implement, typically taking 1 to 3 months. These systems are less complex as they usually involve simpler technology and software integration.
