The ATS Group from the Internal Audit Division won the Best Innovation Idea Award and took home RM300 in cash. The ATS group was represented by Mr. Sharul Azman Ramli and Mr. Mohd Faiz Suparman presented the idea of â€‹â€‹Asset Tracking System (ATS).
Idea Asset Tracking System (ATS) is a technology to track assets owned by the University. There are 2 main components of ATS, namely ATS Apps (using Android or iOS systems) and tracking devices (trackers) that can track assets through the bluetooth function. This technology will facilitate the work of tracking assets whether for the purpose of asset verification or self-inspection of the Responsibility Center (PTJ). Asset Tracking System (ATS) has several functions as follows:-
1) Smart Findings function
Voice search functions such as google assistant/SIRI Virtual assistant to identify assets only mention the asset ID or asset keywords.
2) GPS function
Assets detected by the ATS will be updated including the coordinates of the asset's location. Through this information, ATS Apps is able to provide asset location guidance such as google direction and waze functions.
3) Buzzer Tones and LED
The tracker is capable of making sounds and flashing lights to facilitate tracking by pressing the button on the ATS Apps
4) High Security Level
ATS Apps has a biometric log in function (including face recognition) to increase the level of security and make verification data more reliable.
ATS Group states that the idea of â€‹â€‹Asset Tracking System (ATS) is a practical, realistic and high-impact idea. The implementation of this idea will be able to improve the level of asset management, facilitate the tracking of assets and tasks can be carried out more efficiently and effectively.
