Risk-Free Location System Deployment
February 4, 2010 Leave a comment
Ekahau today announced a Zero-Risk RTLS program. Simply put, it’s a 30-day money-back guarantee for those about to deploy RTLS. The program emphasizes on larger-scale production environments instead of the typical demos done on a small area with a couple of tags.
The campaign makes sense for the customer, since
- It reduces the risk of investment
- The customer gets to evaluate the full system in production use. The production use testing (multiple floors, even multiple buildings, hundreds of tags) is essential; The differences between various RTLS solutions (multi-floor accuracy, scalability, tag maintenance, etc) may not be seen when testing a couple of tags in a small area.
- The performance will be seen even prior to the RTLS deployment: After a quick Wi-Fi site survey with the Ekahau Site Survey tool has been performed, the customer will easily see, on a map, how suitable the current Wi-Fi network is for RTLS
I really hope to see similar offers from other RTLS vendors also. That way, the customer will find the most suitable RTLS solution for the use cases.
The customer wins – as do the best RTLS solutions.
