Kizy – Real Time Tracking

Kizy – Real Time Tracking

Up to 1 year battery lifetime, less than 50 grams, localizable in 95% of the world: these are some of the main features of the new K-1 GSM tracker developed by Kizy Tracking.

The Swiss company, which aims for mass application of tracking solutions for the logistics market, has won the Swiss Logistics Award 2015.

Kizy – a complete and simple solution for global object tracking – closes the gap between today’s offering of GPS-based solutions and waypoint tracking of parcels and containers using barcodes or RFID-tags. Thanks to its small size, the K-1 GSM tracker fits everywhere: a container, a pallet, a parcel or an envelope. It stays with the object to follow everywhere in the world. The customer benefits from a continuous tracking from sender to receiver.

Near-real time tracking for the cost of 1 SMS per day
“With the K-1 GSM tracker, Kizy now enables to follow objects where continuous tracking was not economically reasonable before. We lead the way to a continuous analysis of logistic processes and better customer services. The XXIst century’s logistics will be smart and connected. A fascinating market,” concludes Ruud Riem-Vis, CEO of Kizy Tracking Inc.

Kizy operates on the existing mobile communication network (GSM). Contrary to GPS-based tracking systems, Kizy uses minimal energy consumption, has low operating costs and is able to locate objects inside buildings and containers. The suggested end-user price of the K-1 GSM tracker is US$35 and the online tracking service starts at US$0.20 per day. The cost of use is therefore less than one-tenth compared to competing GPS solutions on the market.



Don’t just describe processes

Don’t just describe processes: Master them.

There is hardly a company which can survive on the market today without quality management and the process descriptions associated with it. Whether Six Sigma, TQM, EFQM etc. companies are constantly striving to adopt specific methodological knowledge together with the necessary tools and to put it to everyday use.
These systems are necessary to achieve continuous improvement of processes, quality and ultimately the creation of added value.

The challenge however lies in the fact that they are based more on theories about processes and their impact on the company and less on how processes within the company actually run. For example, passing a driving test is certainly not a guarantee that the successful candidate will adhere to traffic rules.

Success in the sense of sustainable optimization can be said to have been attained by the company only if it has a wealth of experience in dealing with the methodology and if the associated quality culture is alive and well.

Key performance indicators alone or the processing of issues during audits can provide an indication of weaknesses but rarely any information about their causes. Such conclusions are often based on subjective perceptions or hypotheses.

It is therefore not enough to know about the Business Excellence Methods mentioned above but also to know how to resolve problems and to assess and reduce risks in a structured manner. Only methods, such as the “Operation Efficiency Assessment” enable complete and practical experience of business processes and have an insight into the reality as it really is an not what  it should be in theory or on paper.
