Tiger partners with RiConnect to distribute SupraTag4 February 2022
Tiger Lifting UK has partnered with RiConnect cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) platform, to distribute SupraTag.
The two companies formed a 'mutual global cooperation' thanks to Charles Tsao, CEO, Tiger Lifting and Steven Hong, president, RiConnect.
“We're really excited about this venture - anything that helps the many parties in the lifting equipment supply chain become more sustainable and efficient is a really positive step. The SupraTag is highly corrosion and impact resistant and when it (or other embedded RFID chips) are linked with the RiConnect system, digitalised product information relating to usability and traceability of the product is readily accessible,” said Alice Inglis, director, Tiger Lifting UK.
Tiger will join the network of RiConnect and will have access to the SupraTag, which will be distributed through operations in Taiwan, North America, Australia, Southeast Asia and the UK.
According to Tiger Lifting, sustainability is increasingly important. Quality, reliability and serviceability of products, increasing product life cycles, is essential. Making use of digitalisation technologies like RFID (which is within the SupraTag) to digitalise inspection management systems and efficiently manage inventory will become important. Having instructions, certification, inspection information and checklists available digitally helps companies manage their environmental impact and reduces time for equipment to be put into service making for more efficient operations.
RiConnect specialises in Critical Asset Management & Pre-use Check, including asset management and information transaction between different parties along the supply chain, including product manufacturers, asset owners, and inspection service providers. It helps to maximize the utilization of assets, and optimise asset maintenance and inspection plans, while fulfilling the needs of all the stakeholders in the process.
“Tiger is thrilled to be bringing this innovation to our customers and further cement the relationship between major global brands,” added Inglis.
