The multi-award winning RackEye system from A-SAFE is now available to customers in the USA. RackEye is an intelligent system that monitors the condition of warehouse racking 24/7 and provides real time notifications in the event of an impact incident. It works by actively monitoring racking infrastructure via intelligent sensors fitted to the rack legs. If these detect that an impact has occurred, the system will pinpoint the affected rack and send an immediate SMS notification to the warehouse management team. This allows them to assess any damage immediately and take remedial action if necessary.
RackEye not only addresses the immediate dangers of racking damage, but also supports companies with achieving their long-term strategic warehouse objectives. The RackEye Dashboard provides detailed insight into historical impact trends, allowing users to identify impact hotspots across multiple locations, target predictive maintenance activities and address warehouse layout problems.
The system has already proven itself in the UK, with several high-profile manufacturers and logistics companies using RackEye to enhance safety and efficiency within their facilities. In almost every case, RackEye has delivered a substantial reduction in rack impacts and positive changes in driver behavior. By detecting rack impacts and alerting warehouse managers the instant incidents occur, the system encourages forklift drivers to take greater care when loading and unloading racks. Furthermore, statistical data of when and where impacts are occurring helps warehouse managers to identify impact hotspots, as well determine when additional driver training might be required.
Luke Smith, Co-owner and Managing Director of A-SAFE says, “RackEye has already proved itself at numerous customer facilities in the UK and the results speak for themselves. Many sites are seeing around a 75 percent reduction in rack impacts and the data RackEye generates is helping them to improve warehouse efficiency. We are delighted that our customers in the USA can also now benefit from this advanced technology."
