Logistics informatics is a rapidly emerging technology market focused on the location, security, physical condition, and business status of physical objects as they move across geography or are utilized in a business process or transaction. Logistics informatics has evolved from the supply chain automation market and provides organizations with a factual foundation for real-time business decision-making. At the core of logistics informatics are “sense and respond” technologies that wirelessly track and monitor assets of high value to an organization.
Logistics informatics includes specialized hardware used to “tag” and “read” assets, software to consolidate data from readers, specialized applications such as warehouse management or cargo tracking systems, and advanced reporting and analytic applications that improve enterprise decision making.
“Savi Technology has been a pioneer in the application of sense and respond technologies to the complex challenges of distributed, global and mission-critical supply chain logistics,” said Michael Fauscette, Software Business Solutions Group vice president at IDC, a global provider of marketing intelligence and advisory services for the IT industry. “Savi has helped military and commercial organizations alike utilize more effective asset tracking and management to contain operating costs, improve logistics performance and to foster better decision making through real-time, fact-based information.”
