Real Time Networks has acquired Real Time Location, Ltd, a supplier of people and asset tracking solutions in the UK. Real Time Location was established in 2012 with headquarters located in Barnsley, and boast a number of Fortune 1000 clients.
“I am very happy to welcome the Real Time Location team to our organization. This is a very strategic acquisition for us that really deepens the range of services we can offer,” says Michael French, CEO of Real Time Networks, Inc. “We’re looking forward to adding their staff’s knowledge in designing people and asset tracking solutions to our existing expertise.”
He continues: “This is the perfect time for Real Time Networks to expand its presence in the UK and in Europe. Many industries in those markets still rely on legacy security systems that don’t offer a level of control and feedback that businesses require today. So we’re also looking forward to developing those markets further with the support of the Real Time Location team.”
Real Time Location’s services include full design, installation, and maintenance of wireless asset tracking and a range of people tracking solutions, including: workplace personnel tracking, lone worker tracking, student tracking, underground worker tracking, and roll call (Mustering) solutions.
All of their solutions are customisable and powered by either Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or RFID wireless technology. They use these technologies to build cost-effective Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) that are “100% room-level accurate.”
They can pinpoint the exact locations of any monitored person or asset in the covered facility, such as a warehouse, academic hall, or underground subway system.
