GL events has invested in a new RFID system to monitor the status, location and usage of component parts of its structures.

The system, which has been rolled out and embraced by the global GL events Group, will allow the business to keep track of the exact whereabouts of items from its extensive event-hire stock, ensuring production schedules continue to be delivered to the very highest standards possible. The system also allows the company to monitor the use of items such as PVC roof covers and linings, again enabling production teams to allow time for constant maintenance during busy periods.

Scott Jameson, managing director, GL events UK, said: "It’s important to everyone in our business that we continue to invest in our products and services. This RFID technology is state of the art and tailored to delivering what we all want: the best possible service and production possible.

"As a business we want to innovative and to continue to challenge our own standards. This is a great system that will deliver visible and measurable benefits to our clients."

The investment comes in what has been called an exceptional start to the year for GL events, after signing new contracts with Lancashire Cricket Club, The R&A and Jockey Club Racecourses. Last year the business invested more than £1.4 million in product development throughout its inventory, leading to further contract wins for the company.

Jameson added: "Last year we made major investment in our product, this is a further investment in our service delivery and ensures we continue to deliver the high standards our clients have come to expect from GL events UK. It also allows us to free up more stock and continue to fulfil what is already looking like an exceptionally busy summer for us all."
