Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Savi, a Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] company and leading provider of wireless supply chain and asset management solutions for the largest organizations worldwide, today announced Savi SmartChain® software solutions customized for optimizing operations in the oil and gas, chemicals and defense supplier industries.
The Savi SmartChain® Enterprise Platform and Asset Management suite provides actionable knowledge powered by real-time data from devices equipped with all types of Auto-ID technologies, which can be attached to mobile or stationary assets in the following industries: Transportation and distribution (downstream) sector of the chemicals industry, where Savi information helps users to safely contain, load, transport and distribute products all over the world. Exploration and production (upstream) sector of the oil and gas industry, where Savi helps supply chain operations to safely search for, recover and produce crude oil and natural gas. Supplier sector of the aerospace and defense industry, where Savi helps manufacturers to safely deploy complex weapons, supply and support systems for departments of defense worldwide.
With SmartChain, operational supplies and equipment can be automatically identified, located and managed while they are moved one place to another. As a result, customers can expect to reduce the cost of asset management, improve readiness, achieve greater business confidence, and reduce the number of unexpected, unplanned or unpredicted operational events.
Executives in the above industries who are uncertain about the location of their assets, uncomfortable with the state of their asset management systems, or concerned about the potential for a business-debilitating operational failure can get more information at SaviVideos.
