Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Atlas RFID Solutions, the world leader in comprehensive RFID solutions for construction site materials management, today announced the deployment of a fully integrated Intergraph® SmartPlant® Materials and Jovix™ solution that provides increased business value to industrial construction projects. The market-leading materials management functionality found in SmartPlant® Materials will now be augmented by the unique RFID tracking and location capabilities provided by Jovix™. The first deployment of the two integrated solutions launched in April.
The combined value of these two solutions exceeds that of either individual solution by further enhancing the efficiency of construction through automation of core work processes such as receiving, storing, locating, picking and issuing of materials.
“As project size and complexity increases the demand for automation similarly increases driving customers to seek technologies to enhance process optimization. Atlas RFID, through the Jovix™ solution, provides SmartPlant® Materials customers access to barcoding, passive RFID and active RFID auto-identification and tracking capabilities,” said Michael Buss, Senior Vice President Global Business Development at Intergraph.
Providing real-time location information significantly reduces material readiness issues, eliminates unnecessary reprocurement costs and offers predictability within the site materials management workflow.
“We are excited to be working with Intergraph® and the SmartPlant® Materials solution team to offer our clients a robust suite of capabilities. Jovix™ is a natural extension of the SmartPlant® Materials functionality,” explains Robert Fuqua, CEO at Atlas RFID Solutions. “Jovix™ takes the vast amount of construction materials data available in SmartPlant® and makes that data available to project managers and crew members working directly with the physical components on the jobsite.”
