Asset Management is a core business function in almost every industry.
It can be particularly challenging when it encompasses fixed and portable equipment,
tools, people and the associated workflows.
The primary goal of Asset management is to ensure assets are available for use when they are required while optimising the balance of performance, risk and cost throughout their lifecycle. Well executed Asset management strategies are best supported by high quality, reliable data to support evidence based decision making.
How it works?
CORE PoET provides Smart Edge Sensor based Asset Management capabilities
which enables the collection of real time asset location and utilisation data.
Smart Edge Sensor tags can be placed on assets, which enables them to be located and positioned appropriately for safe and efficient operational delivery. Additionally, utilization of shared assets can be analysed and improved for better cost management.
The tags enable asset visibility by sending frequent bursts of data over the network to CORE PoET’s cloud/on-premise platform. CORE PoET utilises this data to provide comprehensive asset information such as location, status, dwell time, operational workflow status, utilisation and other statistics.
Features & Benefits
Tools & Equipment Monitoring
For better cost efficiency and logistics, many organisations manage centralised equipment storage models. Managing equipment models in such a manner can end up being costlier and more complex. There are also risks associated with equipments being unavailable when required which can result in reduced productivity.
CORE PoET’s Asset Management Solution leverages advanced wireless IoT sensor technology to ensure:
Smart Edge Sensors can track and locate assets faster, more accurately and in real-time.
Prevention of accidental introduction of assets under maintenance in active operations.

Many industries face unplanned downtime due to adhoc asset failure and breakdowns. Unplanned asset failure can often result in operational disruption, adverse safety scenarios, loss of revenue and a negative customer experience.
Early identification of Asset degradation enables proactive and cost effective fault resolution. So far, traditional condition monitoring solutions lack flexibility and scalability. They can be quite complex to implement as well.
CORE PoET provides industry’s first end to end condition monitoring module that offers the flexibility of implementing multiple wireless technologies. This helps in optimally catering to equipment monitoring use cases across industries. It leverages the use of Smart Edge SensorsT to monitor variables like motion, temperature, light, humidity or RMS.
How it works?
CORE PoET’s Smart Edge Sensors collect motion, temperature, geomegantic, light, humidity or RMS data from the asset they are affixed to. This data is transmitted, analysed and visualised in CORE PoET while applying advanced Machine Learning algorithms. This enables identification of specific performance parameters of an asset.
This data is also used to calibrate and create a unique profile of an asset. During continuous monitoring of an asset, its current performance parameters may end up diﬀering from its calibrated unique signature specifications. During such an occurrence, CORE PoET activates the notification mechanism to notify personnel or other systems for proactive maintenance.
Features & Benefits
