Barcoding Develops Custom Active Tracking for National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Colorado
BLE device tracking provides visibility across a mountain resort.
Background: At its annual Winter Sports Clinic event, veterans are challenged to overcome perceived limitations through adaptive skiing, sled hockey, and other activities.
Challenges: The clinic required coordination on multiple fronts, but did not have a way to track where equipment was being used over the duration of the event. Barcoding was brought on board to devise and implement a solution to track the movement and utilization of the hardware inventory.
Solution: Barcoding suggested pivoting to a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solution, which would enable them to obtain detailed location information whenever needed. We collaborated with our partner, Link Labs, to devise custom monitoring software.
Results: The Barcoding team coordinated a smooth deployment. We ensured coverage for nearly twenty different sites, starting with the equipment-heavy IT room and conference room areas, and ending with first-aid stations on the mountain.
“The founder of Link Labs, Brian Ray, and many of our founding employees served in the Navy, so it was especially meaningful for us to be able to partner with Barcoding to give a little back to veterans who have given so much.”
