Apitrak, a fast-growing French provider of geolocation solutions for the healthcare sector has licensed Wirepas Positioning Engine (WPE). WPE works together with asset tags running the Wirepas Mesh connectivity software to provide a cost-effective platform for indoor location services. By making use of the advanced capabilities and performance of Wirepas Mesh, sensor devices can be easily added to the system to extend beyond Location Based Analytics use cases.
The Wirepas Mesh system reduces the number of expensive gateways and simplifies system complexity whilst providing a much more robust radio solution to connect a wide range of asset management tags and sensors. In addition, Wirepas Positioning Engine allows Apitrak to include a fully battery-operated asset localization solution with access to a wide range of tags and sensors provided by the Wirepas ecosystem.
Apitrak is focussed on helping its customers save money and time by providing a geolocation platform and also a rich suite of analytics capabilities. This enables their customers know the location of assets and also understand their utilization, movement and any abnormalities associated with the equipment over time.
Apitrak customers will enjoy several benefits from this collaboration such as unprecedented connectivity reliability and battery-operated infrastructure that delivers fast and affordable installation and operation – a must have for today’s healthcare providers as they automate their processes for better outcomes and efficiency.
The first fruits of the cooperation are available today with multiple projects being implemented across the healthcare sectors, including such institutions as CHP St Grégoire, CH Montélimar and Clinifutur in France. Additional projects in the logistics sector are on-going.

Working with Wirepas will enable Apitrak to satisfy their healthcare customer’s needs to locate medical equipment with unprecedent reliability and low installation costs due to the unique system architecture of Wirepas Mesh. We are delighted to see Apitrak reach the market so quickly with Wirepas Mesh enabled devices.” says Jani Vehkalahti, SVP & General Manager EMEA, Wirepas.
