Perth Children’s Hospital

COREIoT delivered a customised solution – CORE Location Services Engine to PCH, in partnership with Dimension Data.

Having expertise in multitude technology and wireless engineering and being a local onshore vendor helped us partner with DD and come up with a solution which could combine and support multiple wireless technologies.

PCH initially required RTLS with staff safety. Later expanded to one of the largest UHF RFID based Asset and Inventory management. They required a solution which enabled flexible ongoing tag and sensor management, scalability and flexibility as well as future-proofed technology. A combination of Wi-Fi and RFID technologies was deployed to deliver mobile staff duress and asset tracking capabilities. All asset and safety requirements are visualised through a single GUI with sub-location PAR level management of critical equipment.

We worked with internal stakeholders, Dimension Data team and multiple project stackholders, which helped bringing everything together. Our solutions were empowered with sensors which we procured, tested, integrated, and maintained.
We collaborated with the clients in every step of the way right from solution architecture, design, development to deployment and support. This enabled us to understand the requirement and deliver the outcome.
