ICT Releases Idencia v1.4 for Infrastructure Product Information Tracking

International Coding Technologies, Inc. (ICT) announced today that it has released Idencia v1.4, an update to the Idencia SaaS system that enables information tracking throughout the entire life cycle of any asset manufactured with the system.

Idencia, released in February 2014, is a SaaS system that is used by manufacturers of products used in infrastructure to create a serial number for each product it produces and associate it with information about the manufacture of the product. Customers affix radio frequency identification (“RFID”) tags to the products they manufacture. The Idencia system is used to define questions that are answered during the manufacturing process on a tablet or smartphone. The answers are retained in Idencia and can be recalled any time the asset is scanned thereafter.

Idencia v1.4 enables multiple processes to be recorded for each product, not just questions related to manufacturing. This means that the department of transportation (“DOT”) that purchases products built with Idencia can utilize it to create and retain information related to managing the asset over its lifetime.

After a product is manufactured, the DOT can use the system to create questions related to its inspection process. Once entered, both the manufacturing information and the results of the inspection process are associated with that specific asset.

The DOT can later use Idencia’s GPS location feature to find where the product has been placed upon delivery.

When it is time to count inventory, Idencia can be used to simply scan products in the yard to identify exactly what inventory remains on hand.

Idencia is therefore now as valuable for asset managers as it is for producers. DOTs and railroad companies are primary beneficiaries.

Tom Tilson, President/Founder, stated: “This is the beginning of the full realization of the potential for Idencia. Since we started the company we have always envisioned that the benefits of information tracking run from birth through end of life. We are delighted that asset managers may now use Idencia to make their operations more productive.”
