Media release: Relegen expands assetDNA ID solutions with UHF RFID labels suitable for IT asset management applications

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 14:13

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 24 February, 2015 – Relegen, a leading supplier of people and technology solutions to Defence, government, mining and industry, today announced new capabilities for new slimline UHF RFID labels which are ideal for IT asset inventory management, tracking and maintenance applications. Relegen sources and supplies a wide range of asset tagging and identification systems [assetDNA IDs] such as barcodes, HF & UHF RFIDs, covert security identifiers, as well as offering its own patented multi-layered solution. And now, Relegen can offer next-generation EPC Class 1 Gen2 passive UHF RFID labels for users of its asset intelligence software technology, assetDNA.

As UHF RFID technology continues to fall in price and improve in performance, it is increasingly replacing traditional barcode systems in a wide variety of asset tracking applications. Whilst UHF RFID systems still tend to cost more however, because of their speed/range capabilities they can deliver significant time and labour savings which can, over time, offset the initial implementation cost. In the case of IT asset management, UHF RFID can improve the visibility and utilisation of IT assets; maximise depreciation deductions; reduce the costs associated with missing or lost items; remove manual labour associated with IT audits and stocktakes; help protect sensitive data and meet growing compliance requirements.

Media release: Relegen announces wider-availability of new enterprise risk intelligence software product – riskDNA

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - 11:06

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 18 FEBRUARY, 2015 – Relegen, a leading supplier of people and technology to Defence and asset-intensive industries, has officially announced the wider-availability of riskDNA, a new software product which forms a part of its enterprise intelligence technology tool suite.  riskDNA is the first enterprise risk management software to be built around the best-practice control-centred risk intelligence [C2RI] methodology. Whilst riskDNA is being officially announced to the market now, the software has been adopted and used by Orica Limited, the world leader in the manufacture of explosives and industrial chemicals to the mining, construction and infrastructure industries, for over 12 months.

With today’s organisations facing growing regulatory compliance, variability in market conditions, and the need to manage new risks, traditional risk tools and processes are no longer satisfactory.  Conventional solutions such as risk registers and matrices do not provide the granularity necessary to make better, more informed decisions about risk. Furthermore, organisations need to move away from costly consultant-run programs and towards a model of self-sufficiency so they can lower risk program administration costs whilst improving corporate risk knowledge and gaining greater insights into their business.

riskDNA overcomes these challenges. It enables organisations to create a single point of truth for all of their risk data and gain a holistic view of all enterprise risk. It is a highly flexible tool which organisations can use to manage any business risk – safety, environmental, security, community, reputation, hazards and incidents, operational, even financial and strategic risks. In particular, riskDNA and the C2RI methodology enables organisations to easily capture data, model critical controls and correlate risk intelligence across the enterprise so they can better prioritise resources and address those issues that will return the best risk improvement.

However, with all the hype that has arisen, so too have the misconceptions. Continue reading “RFID and the missing link in the ‘Internet of Assets’” »

Blog post: Is business ready for the 'Internet of Assets'?

Thursday, November 13, 2014 - 15:44

For the first time in history there are more active mobile and M2M connections in the world than there are people on the planet. Digital analyst GSMA Intelligence’s real-time device tracker estimates that there are now more than 7.28 billion active mobile connections globally compared to 7.20 billion humans as per the US Census Bureau’s world population clock. What is more, these gadgets are multiplying 5 times faster than we are. These intriguing statistics are not just about smartphones. They represent the interconnection of all sorts of uniquely identifiable devices across the worldwide internet infrastructure. It’s about the ‘Internet of Things’ [IoT] and the ‘Internet of Everything’ [IoE]. Continue reading “Is business ready for the ‘Internet of Assets’?” »

Media release: Relegen releases new video showcasing assetDNA’s RFID capabilities for managing mission-critical assets

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 13:05

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 16 SEPTEMBER, 2014 – Relegen, a leading supplier of people and technology to asset-intensive industries, has just released a fourth new video showcasing assetDNA’s capabilities for the tracking and management of mission-critical assets such as weapons, protective equipment, search and rescue gear, and other items managed by armouries and supply departments.

The secure and timely management of key assets is vital for many organisations, especially those operating in industries such as defence, policing, corrections, borders and security, and emergency response services. Achieving this, however, can be a significant challenge with manual, disparate, disconnected systems. Relegen’s new video shows how assetDNA, a fully-integrated software-tagging-mobile solution, helps organisations automate these processes, enhance decision-making and provide certainty on the chain-of-custody for mission-critical assets.

Blog post: Serious asset data integrity issues plague US Department of Defense

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 - 09:12

This comes on the back of another report in March 2014 which found that the US Army did not have effective procedures for managing equipment [which included weapons, weapons systems, and other sensitive equipment] held in yards in Afghanistan awaiting repatriation back to the US.
