RALEIGH, North Carolina — Wiser Systems, a developer of ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless location and tracking systems, has released a new version of the Tag and Track software used in its Locator system, following several hardware and software developments in Q1 of 2020.

“These changes span nearly every piece of the Wiser Locator, including significant enhancements to the interface, user experience upgrades, and work behind-the-curtain to make Tag and Track more useful and cross-functional,” said CEO Dr. Elaine Rideout.

“We’re especially glad that our engineers were able to gather extensive feedback from our customers as they worked on this release, so we’re confident that we’re making our tools yet easier to use and more valuable for them.”

Many of the changes improve the user interface. Some upgrades are designed to shorten the time involved to implement and scale large installations. Other improvements include new tools for organizing tracking tag identities, upgrades to the hands-off health check, and numerous features for configuring access to location data.

Tag and Track V. 2.14 also includes many backend upgrades. It expands abilities to manage large volumes of data, with new features to facilitate database integration and to access various data points outside the Tag and Track interface. Other developments enhance Tag and Track’s 3D positioning, which debuted last year.

“In 2019 we focused on expanding our engineering team, and it’s paying off,” said Rideout.

“Just this year we’ve already introduced our new ruggedized tag and scaled several enterprise-level rollouts. Our team has worked very hard to make all of this happen, especially with this major software release following so quickly.”

Wiser first launched Tag and Track in 2016. Since then, the company has introduced numerous software upgrades. Earlier this year, it demonstrated a new geo-staking feature that pairs GPS data—latitude and longitude—with its own coordinate system.
