Linde Group subsidiary Linde Gases today announces the arrival of ACCURA®, its new cylinder inventory intelligence service. First tested in Australia, ACCURA is set to launch there and elsewhere officially later in 2016.

“Linde has always played a leading role in gas technology innovation,” said Kathy Hocker, Head of Packaged Gases at Linde. “We are constantly innovating to provide our customers with the state-of-the-art tools to enable them to do their jobs efficiently and safely and ACCURA is a significant step forward in improving the cylinder management side of our customers’ business.”

Savings through efficiency

The company cites the significant cost saving in efficient cylinder management for its customers as the impetus behind creating the software, which allows users to track cylinders using electronic identification containing info on their contents and location.

“We are constantly innovating to provide our customers with the state-of-the-art tools to enable them to do their jobs efficiently and safely and ACCURA is a significant step forward in improving the cylinder management side of our customers’ business.”

As Linde explains, “Each time the cylinder is moved, it is scanned and traced with real time location data uploaded to the ACCURA cloud-based platform. The service enables live information on gas cylinder stock levels, movement history, and usage patterns to be accessed via Linde‘s mobile app for smartphones and tablets or via a regular web browser.”

ACCURA’s interface also includes enhanced visibility for hazardous products and cylinder expiry dates, and includes an option to assist users in reordering gases when cylinder contents are running low.
