RFID eliminates the need for non-contact, line-of-sight scanning. This means you can be several feet away from an asset and still read the tag. This means no more crawling under furniture or behind server racks to get to your asset tags.
RFID enables you to read multiple tags at once. This results in much faster physical inventories, especially when you have lots of assets close together. Imagine the time you’ll save auditing employee workstations, server rooms, and storage areas.
RFID tags provide a high degree of security and asset authentication because they’re more difficult to replicate than a simple barcode label.This ensures data integrity which helps improve overall accountability.
If you can’t read an asset tag, the system won’t work. RFID tags are very durable, which helps to ensure readability. And there are a variety of RFID tags designed to work in hot, wet, dirty and or dusty conditions.
RFID Asset Tracking
RedBeam Asset Tracking comes with RFID functionality built-in.
The asset tracking RFID process is remarkably similar to barcode-based tracking, except you place RFID tags on your assets instead of traditional barcode labels. This enables your asset tracking system to use radio waves to read your asset tags using handheld RFID readers.
RedBeam’s turnkey RFID-enabled asset tracking solution takes the guesswork out of tag selection by supporting passive RFID tags that are:
- Surface independant*, and
- Provide excellent read range.
* The surface material of an asset can interfere with RFID signals so you’ll need tags that work on your assets, regardless of where you put them – plastic, metal, even wood.
Handheld RFID Readers
RedBeam supported handheld RFID readers are ideal for routine asset management tasks:
- Barcode and RFID tracking
- Superior read range
- Wireless connectivity
- Lightweight ergonomic design
Easily update asset information and take periodic physical inventories from anywhere in your organization in real-time.
