Henriksen Selects DCS Cloud-Based IoT Solutions to Manage and Monitor High-Value Assets

San Diego, California–(Newsfile Corp. – December 22, 2022) – Direct Communication Solutions, Inc. (OTCQX: DCSX) (CSE: DCSI) (FSE: 7QU) a leading provider of information technology solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) market, is excited to announce that Henriksen Concrete Washout Systems has selected DCS’ MiFleet cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) platform to manage and monitor more than 275 of their concrete washout bins.

Henriksen Concrete Washout Systems was looking for a solution that would solve their real-world problem by providing visibility into the location of their high-value assets. While concrete washout bins are critical to every construction site, they do not have direct access to a power source. MiFleet created a solution using a solar-powered GPS asset tracker, which solved the direct power issue, with an easy-to-deploy solution. The asset tracker uses UScellular’s reliable, wireless network to ensure the fast connection for monitoring.

“When we were initially approached by Henriksen with their requirement of a long battery life GPS tracker, quickly solved the problem with a solar-powered GPS asset tracker that does not require direct access to power,” said Mike Lawless, EVP of Sales. “Concrete washout bins are required at every construction site and play a crucial role in meeting environmental standards implemented by the EPA. Managing and monitoring the location of these assets with MiFleet, will automate the process for Henriksen, and allow them to run their business efficiently and effectively with the data provided by MiFleet.”

“We needed a solution to track our concrete washout bins across multiple job sites, with no access to direct power. We engaged with DCS, explained our requirements and they delivered with a solar powered GPS tracking device that solved our problem,” said Brad Blackman, Chairman at Henriksen Washout Systems. “DCS solved our problem. We now have visibility into the location of our concrete washout bins, which streamlines our operations, and decreases lost revenues by reducing inefficiencies and costs of manually managing our revenue generating assets.”

“The integration of the DCS MiFleet platform to support the needs of Henriksen Washout Systems is a perfect example of how bringing an integrated solution together can enable efficient monitoring of assets,” said Kim Kerr, senior vice president, enterprise sales and operations for UScellular. “Our fast, reliable wireless network supports the transfer of data needed to help meet a real business need.”

According to research, the Global Asset Tracking Market was valued at $17.75 Billion in 2021 and is forecasted to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.91% during the 2022 to 2027. North America is expected to account for a significant market share of the asset tracking market, owing to the high adoption rate of advanced technologies in countries across the United States and Canada. Advancements in IoT technology have enabled several end users, such as transportation and logistics, manufacturing, food and beverage, and others, to acquire economical and efficient asset tracking hardware. IoT help connect multiple processes, workforce, and assets across the business value chain into a single “integrated strategic system.” Asset tracking delivers real-time data contributing to a bottom line, and IoT devices and systems make asset tracking more accurate and reliable.
