ASH Projects Are Technology Deployment Specialists
Formed in the UK in 2002, ASH Projects was created to fill a market niche, discovered through years of Technology Deployment. We found that customers were asking for more support than standard vendors supplied. Our customers liked our approach in giving them a true ‘hands off’ experience. This enables them to concentrate on Business as Usual responsibilities, whilst ASH takes care of delivering projects. Our service offer quickly grew to meet that need; not just supplying Field Services and Project Management, but also Technical Services and Consultancy. We have curated that offer over the past 2 decades by listening to our customers’ evolving needs and moulding our service around delivering what’s important to them. As a client led organisation, our customers come back to us time and again for reliable service and an unrivalled customer experience.

ASH Metric Map™
When it comes to people counting, ASH are SME’s in Design, Deployment and Support. Our ASH Metric Map™ ensures coverage of all areas of interest are captured at project outset. It fits hand in glove with our proprietary PMO process and the ASH DPD™ (Device Placement Design). When applied to complex projects and challenging environments, both indoor & outdoor, this enables Maximum Coverage with Minimal Devices. “Our customers know [conceptually] what they want to see from an analytics dashboard. The ASH Metric Map™ visualizes that concept and ensures the DPD™ will deliver the results” Tony Felton, Head of Tech Services.
Our Device Placement Design – or ASH DPD™ is a core competency. It was created to provide Maximum Coverage with Minimal Devices for people counting & tracking solutions. Most innovative technology proposals fail predominantly on cost. We developed the DPD™ to provide a globally scalable solution to reduce TCO on people tracking solutions. This methodology has successfully worked with significant deployments of Xovis, Brickstream & other leading manufacturers. It can be applied to WiFi deployments and other IoT technologies. Most recently, the DPD™ saved one customer over $2m in inventory and recurring SaaS costs. “Accuracy is everything when it comes to meaningful metrics. If sensors aren’t positioned correctly, the data won’t be accurate – that’s where the DPD™ comes in. We make sure the sensors are in the optimum spot to capture all those important metrics. The integrity of the data is assured with the ASH DPD™” Alison Ashurst, CEO.
Our philosophy is to get you Closer to your Customer. Whether your customer is a consumer of fast moving goods or fashion apparel, or is a retailer trying to enhance their consumer experience, or even an analyst requiring real-time metrics from the built environment. ASH will get you closer to your customer.
