pH Europe Ltd, a provider of a comprehensive range of innovative container services, today announced that it has been recognized by IDG's Computerworld as a 2005 recipient of Computerworld's "Best Practices in Mobile & Wireless" Award, sponsored by the world-renowned Intel Corporation. The award honours organisations that have applied exemplary mobile and wireless solutions to provide strategic advantage to their enterprise. Recipients received recognition for their achievement during a special awards ceremony at Mobile & Wireless World (MWW) 2005, held in Arizona on 15 June, 2005.
pH Europe Ltd is well known for a portfolio of innovative container services that its growing roster of customers employs to deliver products ranging from chemicals and pharmaceuticals to foodstuffs and industrial parts. The technology package, developed by pH Europe, was devised to keep track of the location of expensive industrial containers. However, it is now being predicted as the solution for a range of companies that want to keep track of valuable stock, costly assets or even people.
The system - called finderT - uses microchip identification tags that can be placed within packaging, on wrist bracelets or attached to stock to trace their location and movement. The tags maintain constant contact with long range radio receivers so that their location can be pinpointed 24 hours a day. The technology can monitor several thousand tags at any one time making it an economic and reliable system with a range of uses.
pH Europe's sales director Jack Cleghorn says: "There is a huge range of uses for the finder system and interest is coming in from companies in a wide range of sectors, including chemical distribution, food processing, emergency services and the automotive industry." pH Europe is currently working on developing a tracking and location system for the German Fire Services, on a vehicle enabled version, and on customised tags for use in highly hazardous environments.
