One of the biggest challenges for companies today in reaching their EAM goals lies in equating its various “variables” with the “people,” and “compliance” factors. For instance, siloed product deployments for monitoring particular assets do not integrate with other systems meant to monitor their usage or even the people using them. This in itself steals away the very bird’s eye view that EAM is meant to impart and in turn adds to complexities in monitoring organizational workflow and workforce.
With an arsenal of integrated solutions to match any type of asset that their customers are using, GEOS offers straightforward EAM as a cloud-based service. GEOS Global Safety Fusion Center is the heart of the company’s Asset Safety and Security Assurance offering. The Fusion Center allows customers to integrate and monitor various types of assets, thereby providing a single global view of a company’s entire asset safety and security status in real time. There are unique views, rules, and relationships that can be configured to best mitigate any risk against each type of asset, from equipment monitoring to campus safety to traveling employees.
The success story of a multinational company based in Canada serves as the perfect example of GEOS’ all-round EAM delivery capabilities. The client needed to combine remote worker monitoring (duty-of-care) with a mobile asset monitoring system; they were looking for a method to establish a relationship between a worker, a piece of equipment, and geographic location. Misuse of equipment that even leads to theft was one among the many biggest pain points they had faced. GEOS’ Fusion Center allowed them to track where the equipment was, when it moved, and by which employee. If it was moved at the wrong time of day or moved outside of the worksite, an alert was generated to the GEOS 24x7 monitoring center, as well as the distribution list at the company. The solution utilized both satellite and cellular-based tracking and monitoring systems for both the equipment and for the remote workers, and additionally featured SOS capabilities for the remote worker.
GEOS’ clients range across small and global corporations from a variety of industries—utilities, transport, healthcare, and even educational institutes. The company continues to align itself best in terms of the dynamic needs of their client base as well as market trends. GEOS will soon roll out additional features that will all be a part of its Global Safety solution. “Our new products will focus on areas of critical event notification, real-time global incident monitoring that will trigger rules and relationship modifications to keep assets safe, based on events occurring in proximity to where they are located or may be heading,” concludes Garver.
