Another key component included within VSS is the Launcher, which provides a single point of entry to all the components of VSS. Residing as a tray icon, the launcher can be easily accessed and includes the following groups of software modules: Operation, Administration, Diagnostics, Installation and Documentation. With VSS, you can locate, identify and track assets, know their status, and react to user configurable alert conditions. VSS also supports Zebra WhereCall buttons, which enables wireless messaging within your operations. VSS capabilities allow you to wirelessly request parts replenishment, eliminate manual searches, manage parts through WIP operations, and much more. VSS is designed to help streamline your operations while achieving a higher level of inventory accuracy.
In addition to supporting ISO/IEC 24730, VSS includes connectors that interface with Cisco’s Mobility Service Engine (MSE) and Zebra’s Ultra Wideband (UWB) Dart Hub appliance. Interfacing VSS with the MSE allows more effective tracking and management of Wi-Fi devices and tagged assets within a CCX infrastructure. Likewise, interfacing with Dart Hubs offers enhanced management capabilities for assets that are tracked using high-precision Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology. Moreover, VSS provides the tools required to control and monitor the Real Time Location System, including configuration tool, diagnostics, system alert, health monitors, and installation tools. The Alert System allows users to define their own alerts and configure email notifications. SNMP MIB extensions are also included so that the RTLS system can be managed as part of the enterprise standard IT infrastructure.
