SureMDM InLocate – Find and Track Mobile Devices in Retail with Indoor Location Tracking

apr 26, 2024 | 42Gears Team

For retailers relying on rugged and mobile devices for their operations, every wasted minute can have a significant impact on their revenue and competitive performance. One of the primary reasons retailers lose time and waste resources is locating misplaced devices; more specifically, tracking and locating devices by manually searching for them.

A recent poll shows that 27% of supply chain companies have reported missing or misplacing 6-10% of their devices and around 10% of their peripherals. Since these incidents are so commonplace, retailers need a solution that can help them minimize time wasted searching for these devices and track their devices within large facilities. 

In this blog, we will focus on SureMDM InLocate, a revolutionary indoor location-tracking technology that helps retail operations and supply chain teams track and locate their devices within large facilities, warehouses, and distribution centers. 

Why Indoor Location Tracking Matters

When working within large buildings and facilities, misplacing devices like scanners and tablets is a commonly reported issue. Such incidents can cause data security concerns and slow down operations. Both of these issues can lead to the following challenges: 

  • Reduced productivity

    : Manually locating devices within large facilities can take away precious time and resources from IT and operations teams.
  • Revenue loss when replacing misplaced devices

    : In case a device cannot be located or is reported stolen, retailers need to procure devices to replace the missing ones. 
  • Security risks

    : When a device is misplaced or stolen and falls into the wrong hands, the chances of data security breaches increase, as sensitive information can be misused or tampered with. This can lead to serious implications.
