Mobile BassetPro

Intelligence is key to the success of any project. In this sense, intelligence means knowledge - knowing what you have, what is happening, and what issues require attention.
BassetPro delivers information that enables critical decisions to be made, and as such, it is a key tool for managers at all levels.

The delivery of information that is timely and accurate requires three steps: collection, analysis and presentation.
SageData products are built around automatic identification, with mobile units used to ensure that data collection is easy, fast, accurate and complete. This enables high levels of data integrity. A user can rely on the accuracy and timeliness of the reports from this system

What does BassetPro do?

These systems can be used in any material management situation. They are used to track fixed assets, manage warehouse operations, and control dangerous materials.
The asset management variant is used by many Federal Government Departments for tracking IT materials, laptops, servers, AV equipment. They are used by the RCMP for tracking weapons, vehicles and radios, and for managing large scale events, including G7.

Who is SageData?

SageData are based in Ottawa, and have been supplying these systems to the Federal Government for more than 25 years. We have supplied nearly every Federal Government Department and Agency, and are currently providing material management services to track materials being removed and replaced on Parliament Hill.

How are these systems configured?

How would you like them to be configured?
We have installations on our servers, on client networks, or standalone (in many cases for high level security). User interfaces can be configured to your exact requirements.
External interfaces permit information to be exchanged with a variety of backend systems, including SAP, Peoplesoft, and Quickbooks.


Reading Server's barcode

Once BassetPro is installed and operational, the receipt, deployment, audit and disposal of equipment becomes extremely simple. Because asset tags with barcodes or RFID are used to identify items, tracking activity or registering a move or disposal becomes easy, fast and accurate.
Reporting is comprehensive and fast. So managers can have a full accounting. You can know exactly what you have, exactly where it is, and exactly when it was last touched.

BassetPro Lite-plus

SageData offers a range of products in the BassetPro family. Alpha, Enterprise and Delta are mainline products. Lite and Lite-plus are simpler versions of the products, with reduced capabilities more appropriate for smaller applications.


Basset Pro Lite-plus can handle more than: 10 users, 300 transactions per day, 50 owners, 100 locations, 10,000 assets. It is a standalone product, not intended for connection to a network. This is important for secure applications, and provides better protection for the data, protecting against unauthorised access and malicious damage to the data. And of course it helps protect the integrity of the network, and reduces requirements for approval to connect.
Technologies it can use include: manual entry and barcode scanning. For further information contact SageData. A project manager will assist you in confirming the appropriate configuration for your application. Benefits of Delta include reduced training costs.


Lite-plus can readily be expanded to BassetPro Delta. Contact us for more information.


This is the most frequently recommended for small applications where the ROI for a regular system cannot be justified, and where a limited number of people need access to the information. For smaller applications it will meet all your needs, and can readily be expanded if required.
