Powerful insights from real-time micro-location data for manufacturing and logistics operations
We help companies maximize their productivity, reduce labor costs and improve worker safety.

HOW IT WORKS
Volan’s micro-location sensors form digital geofences around the spaces where you want to capture real-time people positioning data. These credit-card size sensors are wireless and they don’t connect to any existing WIFI network, making for a simple and fast setup.
As people move throughout the worksite, wearable devices publish micro-location data to the Volan network every few seconds producing a virtual cloud of people positioning data.
Raw micro-location data streams in real-time to the Volan analytics engine for dashboard reporting on historical labor utilization and productivity. Real-time alerts inform operation managers when in-the-moment changes can correct inefficiencies or drive higher productivity.
Volan customers typically get a 30-60x annual ROI on their investment with us.
