IoT Facility Management and Asset Tracking Delivering Accuracy in Reporting

THE CHALLENGE​

The monitoring and logging of inmate and guard activity inside of a correctional facility is often done manually; which means its error-prone, labor intensive, and susceptible to fraudulent data entry.  Regulatory requirements and SOP’s dictate that guards must visit certain facility and cell locations on a mandatory basis, as well as record the actions of each inmate and various interaction points. To meet these requirements our client came to us looking to solve three critical challenges:

  1. Increase the efficiency of their data capture process
  2. Reduce manual errors and fraudulent data entry
  3. Develop a single solution that not only captures and allows for review of the data, but also generates meaningful report

THE SOLUTION

Using Beacon BLE technology services the jail facilities can not only accurately track a guard’s movement, but also determine their proximity to an inmate’s cell. Our mobile-app provides a friction-free experience for the guards and management to easily log and review data. The Azure Cloud technology back-office portal supports device administration, application customization, notifications, and report generation based on the captured IoT data to meet regulatory requirements.

RESULTS

Our enhanced solution provided our client with trace-ability, accountability, and data in their day-to-day operations. The web and mobile-based applications were developed in core Android and the back-office portal was designed in MVC.  To date, the application is currently in use at multiple jail facilities and handles millions of IoT interactions every year.
