WHY Stics

We have transformed the way our clients manage their Fire Doors. We can’t wait to help you achieve the same benefits.


The Smart Tag Intelligent Control System (Stics) was originally developed to serve asset managers in the Oil and Gas industry. Its big brother was Site Training Inspection & Compliance Services (Stics). We are able to handle the huge breadth of asset types, disparate locations and challenging physical environments, we soon realised its potential to revolutionise asset management in other sectors.

Our experience across a wide range of industries enables us to tailor the system to perfectly meet your organisation’s specific compliance and safety needs. Let us help you unlock the potential of digital asset control.

STICS asset control testimonial quote

We have worked with Stics for over two years now and are delighted with the work carried out so far. Our company specialises in working for councils and housing associations so all project work needs to be of the highest quality. Stics helped create a working asset register, which plots forward actions for each asset and logs the result. It also organises the information into user-friendly reports that we use as back up for our invoicing. I would highly recommend working with them.
