Action for Today, Strategy for Tomorrow: Winning Through RTLS Analytics


We are right in the middle of one of our favorite times of year at ZulaFly… Football season.

As we follow our favorite teams throughout the coming months, each team’s total wins and losses will be largely predicated on their ability to make quality in-game adjustments. Additionally, the ability for coaches and players to analyze strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement during the week helps them form strategy that helps them notch another victory.

In many ways, Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) is a tool that helps businesses and organizations execute a combination of in-game strategy, as well as planning for the next battle ahead.

What tools do you use to form daily strategy within your organization?

Of the many ways in which businesses measure success and craft plans to improve their operations, RTLS is emerging as a critical component to effective strategy.

Just as it’s virtually impossible to know where you need to go if you don’t know where you’ve already been, strategy cannot be effectively formed without the use of data and analytics. When it comes to gathering information related to the people and assets in your business, there’s perhaps no greater tool than RTLS.

How does RTLS affect strategy?

The location-based data RTLS captures provides a snapshot of daily business activity that is difficult to obtain otherwise. Systems like ZulaFly’s Fuzion are capable of taking all the data gathered from people and equipment that have been tagged, while providing reports that are customized to the nuances of your business.

Healthcare is an excellent example. When indicators centered around location-based data are being analyzed, hospitals, clinics, and senior living facilities can make decisions that streamline operations to ensure residents and patients are receiving attentive, timely care.

Operations are streamlined and the business thrives when questions such as this can be answered: How much time is each resident getting with staff members? How quickly are requests for assistance being responded to? How long has a piece of equipment been in use? Are we able to track down who and which assets a patient with an infectious disease was in contact with?

Real-time data leads to real-time decision-making.

While planning, projecting, and refining operational strategy based on reports is an important function of RTLS analytics, it should be noted how RTLS also makes a real-time difference in your business.

When RTLS data is infused into a system such as Fuzion mobile, the power to be proactive instead of reactive is amplified. Fuzion alerts allow the right people to be informed at the right time whenever an urgent situation has emerged.

What if a valuable asset is leaving the facility and it’s not supposed to? What if the temperature has gone out of range in a refrigerator or freezer? What if a staff member needs help in a remote area of the facility? What if a senior living resident is roaming to an area he or she is not supposed to be? What if a healthcare patient or resident needs assistance and is not being helped in a timely manner?

These are all urgent situations that can arise, and these situations can all be responded to AS they happen, instead of AFTER they occur, thanks to the power of Fuzion mobile.

ZulaFly’s Fuzion is built to deliver customized reports the way businesses and organizations need them, ensuring each person and asset is maximized. These reports, analytics, and alerts (centered around RTLS technology) give organizations the edge they need to make adjustments on a day-to-day basis while crafting plans that help them remain relevant, service-driven, and a step ahead of opponents.
