The definition of asset management refers to the method of physical traceability of assets, whether they are trolleys, containers, documents or objects in general. The introduction of the EPC Global international standards codifies the syntax and semantics for supply chain events and provides a secure method for selectively sharing supply chain events with trading partners.
These Track & Trace standards have been successfully implemented in many industries and there is now a wide range of certified products that are compatible with these standards.
With a growing demand for recalls in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors and for anti-counterfeiting applications, there has been a significant increase in requests for consultancy and the supply of hardware and software systems to guarantee the identification and traceability of assets in all fields. RFID radio frequency identification and Barcode systems are the most used technologies to guarantee traceability, even if recently BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and GPS technologies are also increasingly present. FasThink specializes in the integration of asset management technologies with IT systems through the Middleware CONNECT platform.
