Wheritics is an enterprise-grade Real-Time Location System (RTLS) designed for occupant and asset security in the workplace. Our platform is based on a cloud software backend working in pairs with an IoT infrastructure deployed at the client facility. The IoT devices we use are Bluetooth LE (low-energy) emitters often called beacons or iBeacons. They are detected by all modern smartphones who have the Wheritics mobile app installed, which allows the cloud backend to locate occupants indoors without the need for GPS. Beacons can also communicate with each other (M2M or machine-to-machine), allowing the backend to monitor physical assets without the intervention of a human operator. Based on the IoT infrastructure data collected in real-time, the Wheritics cloud software helps automating and optimizing safety and security procedures in the workplace by: a. Pushing instant, contextual (suited to the whom, where, when) evacuation procedures in case of emergency b. Directing evacuation professionals (Ex: firefighters) to occupants location c. Securing valuable assets by monitoring their location and who’s accessing them d. Making sure security staff patrols are in conformity with the planned procedures e. Supervising employees and visitors access policies in the workplace Wheritics is a SaaS modular app-catalogue solution, meaning enterprise clients can purchase the whole bundle or specific modules that suit their business-cases and pain-points.
