Numerex Corp., an Atlanta-based provider of on-demand and interactive machine-to-machine enterprise solutions, and Cascade Engineering,  a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based manufacturer serving a wide range of markets including solid waste and recycling, will be collaborating on the development and implementation of an asset management solution that targets the solid waste and recycling market.

The X-Tracker provides geographic visibility, tracking and management of remote assets such as roll-off containers. The system will combine Numerex's supply chain management solution, which includes smart devices, intelligent network services and application framework built around Numerex’ FAST service delivery platform, and Cascade's Xtreme RFID business' expertise in the design, engineering and manufacturing of rugged RFID tags.

"Our partnership with Numerex reflects our focus on integrated solutions and full system approach to the waste and recycling market," says Mike Lewis, head of Cascade's Xtreme RFID business. "Through this innovative asset tracking solution, we not only collect data, but also provide related in-depth analysis in order to efficiently guide our customers' decisions."

Detailed information and a wide range of metrics around the use of the assets are supplied through the use of the X-Tracker.

"Cascade's commitment to deploying a comprehensive suite of products and services resonates well with our end-to-end strategy," says Jeff Newman, senior vice president of business development at Numerex. "Our new supply chain management solution goes way beyond periodical asset location. The insight and metrics that it provides allow customers to create value added services while improving the productivity of their assets. This is both a revenue generating and cost saving proposition."
