Entopy launches game changer for supply chain visibility and control

Entopy launches game changer for supply chain visibility and control
Entopy has launched Tracca, a game changing innovation that will transform asset visibility and open up new possibilities for more effective, collaborative and cost efficient supply chain management.

Tracca is a ground-braking track and trace solution developed by Entopy that provides real time, all-the-time supply chain visibility, without the need for costly infrastructure.

The system overcomes battery life issues thanks to Entopy’s innovative technology, which enables Tracca sensors to pool their battery power to give months of operating life. This combined with Tracca’s use of cellular communications, gives the system the extended range necessary to create a complete picture of a supply chain.

The ‘drop and play’ solution requires no lengthy set up or costly capital expenditure to offer a highly secure and flexible supply chain management solution.

Tracca sensors report on the go, every minute via cellular communications. In addition to GPS location, each sensor can measure temperature, speed and acceleration as the asset travels through the supply chain. In addition to avoiding asset loss, managers are able to inspect and optimise their supply chains in real time using real data of all the ‘life experiences’ of an asset and its contents. This can all be managed remotely with complete security and flexibility.

Any unplanned events can be witnessed as they happen, allowing appropriate action to be taken to avoid issues such as billing discrepancies, and late payments while improving collaboration and supply chain efficiency.

Tracca collects and stores an unprecedented level of data in complete security on a cloud-based platform. A ‘dashboard’ application displays a broad range of information from asset location to temperature, excessive acceleration leading to potential damage, usage and cycle times.

The sensors can be reconfigured remotely via the cellular network whenever required. Each device reports when its battery is low, and signals where they are. Recharging is wireless.

“Tracca creates a reliable and robust solution for any company seeking to gain full control of their supply chain and offers a long field life, security of data, and great flexibility. No other platform offers its depth of data and insight,” said Toby Mills, Founder and CEO of Entopy UK. “This simple and scaleable solution delivers value straight out of the box and is crucial for avoiding the costs associated with supply chain failure, damage and dispute. Armed with hard data from Tracca, instead of just instinct, managers can start challenging inefficient practices.”

Tracca is delivered as a ‘Solution as a Service’ (SOaaS): a simple period contract with monthly payments covering devices, communications and applications. Users can trial, or phase in, their usage with just a few units and scale up as required.
