This company has introduced a new cloud-based version of its gas cylinder inventory intelligence service, Accura (photo). Each time a cylinder is moved, it is scanned and traced, and realtime location data is uploaded to the Accura platform. The service enables live information on cylinder stock levels, movement history and usage patterns, which can be accessed through a mobile application for smartphones and tablets, or via a regular web browser. Tools such as re-ordering assist and gas-consumption reports help increase productivity, especially for customers requiring an uninterrupted gas supply for process continuity. Additional benefits of the service include enhanced visibility of potentially hazardous products and cylinder expiry dates. — Linde Gases, a division of The Linde Group, Munich, Germany
