Asset Tracking – Where is it?
Asset Tracking – Where is it? In Los Angeles we helped ensure food is fresh by tracking it, in Atlanta we help a bank track computer assets, in San Diego we help track people on board a ship, in Miami we help a systems integrator track livestock throughout Central and South America, in New York City we help a laundry service track linens and towels, in Ontario we help ambulance operators track on board assets and the list goes on. RFID can be used to track more things than can be imagined, from tools to toilets and people to paintings. SLon RFID can help you develop systems that can either track items from zone to zone or help you pin point specific location of items. You can now track or locate high priced or mission critical items anywhere, anytime using SLon RFID’s diverse hardware and LocateWare? RFID middleware. SLon's RFID Asset Tracking System is an integrated real-time RFID tracking and monitoring system that is able to track the movement of the tagged assets within a site and send out alerts when certain conditions are met. Downlod SLons Introduction to RFID based Physical Inventory White Paper This document offers insight into the activity of conducting physical inventory projects and, in particular, SLon RFID's approach to it using an RFID based solution. Tracking and locating capability may be a security or health and safety requirement. SLon RFID’s solutions satisfy the needs of a diverse community of users. Our full range of RFID readers, tags and software can be used to support first responders, secure parking areas, track admission to secure areas, track and locate critical assets such as computers, test equipment and life saving apparatus. Manufacturing is using RFID to track WIP (work in progress), semi-finished goods and finished goods. Transportation and logistics now have a cost-effective way of tracking goods in transit as well as the associated moving equipment itself. SLon RFID has watched the RFID landscape continually change and has kept pace with these changes by introducing an ever expanding portfolio of technologies to satisfy the broad variety of business requirements. SLon RFID offers solutions that utilize low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) for the livestock tracking and monitoring industry. Access control solutions can require the rigid standards of HF or the flexibility of UHF (Ultra High Frequency) or active technology. Healthcare: Valuable and mission critical assets exist on many environments. Healthcare uses RFID to track and locate mission critical assets. Healthcare is also using RFID is improve patient bedside care protocols, establish safeguards for the tracking of movement of new born babies as well as safeguard the custody of senior patients. UHF combined with LocateWare? is a cost effect way of tracking the movement of assets within an enterprise. Active technology combined with LocateWare? can be used to locate assets within any monitors space, indoors or outdoors. Manufacturing: SLon RFID is helping manufacturing to track WIP and assembly line components and tools. A manufacturer’s inability to locate semi-finished goods when required can severely impact productivity. Active RFID working in combination with LocateWare? can eliminate hours of searching for tools and products. Active RFID is addressing the problems related to bulk storage and retrieval. When a traditional warehouse setup is not practical, active RFID can be the solution. Security and Safety: We live in a time of heightened security. RFID is being used to track items and people in and out of secure and sensitive areas. RFID is being used to monitor and control vehicle access and individual access to specified areas. SLon RFID has a complete cross-section of RFID technologies that address virtually any security requirement and LocateWare? software to provide reporting and accurate audit details for any environment. RFID is being used by first responders to track individual movement and locate valuable assets within a monitored area. Valuable Assets: RFID is being used to track and locate valuable assets such as computer and computer room equipment. Museums and art galleries are using RFID to track and secure valuable artifacts. RFID is being used to monitor continuous custody of critical or valuable items. Continuous and verified chain of custody is critical in a number of fields including law enforcement. SLon RFID has a full range of asset tracking solutions that can be customized for almost any need. LocateWare? makes it easy to get an RFID installation operational quickly. LocateWare? also makes it simple to get data from any RFID reader to most backend systems. When it comes to implementing an RFID solution you should do what you do best and turn to SLon RFID for the rest.
