Asset tracking in construction, oil and gas, and other energy-related industries is time-consuming, inaccurate and very costly. The digital world is just beginning to break into the tough industry. Access mats, the portable platforms used to support equipment and provide temporary roadways, are among the assets that are costing energy and construction companies millions of dollars per year. Golden Environmental Mat Services won the 2016 RFID Journal Green Award for its use of RFID to manage construction mats and to track the sterilization of contaminated mats to reduce environmental impact before deploying them back into the field. Learn how the matting services firm is using RFID and GPS tracking in its award-winning SmartMat to digitize industrial assets. Hear how the technology is increasing asset utilization and reducing costs, and how it is improving decision-making and project information.
