solutions, and Smart Management, a leader in automating supply chain management for oil and gas, today announced
a joint initiative to enable the wireless tracking and monitoring of assets and equipment in the oil & gas supply chain.
Enfora and Smart Management have developed an integrated solution that combines Smart Management’s TAG-

Smart Management’s TAG-HUB web-enabled application makes it easier for companies to exchange information
about their assets and goods across supply chains. The TAG-HUB system also provides services that facilitate
inspection, documentation, data-capture, etc. The result is greater efficiency in managing the overall supply chain.
Enfora’s Spider AT is designed around low power technology and powered by a long lasting battery pack that
provides up to 3 years of service without maintenance. It allows users to retrieve critical information, such as asset
location and movement patterns, based on user defined alerts, specific events or geofence boundaries, while at the
same time optimizing power management and minimizing maintenance. The Spider AT has been ATEX certified for
operation in hazardous environments.
Enfora’s Services Gateway enables customers to directly connect, manage and provision wireless devices. The
Gateway has been configured to work seamlessly with, and accelerate the deployment of, the Spider AT.
