Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is an evolution in data carrier technology which can be used to keep track of goods and assets within a company and around the world. RFID uses radio waves to query the tagged item “who are you?”, "where is it?" “what is it?”, and then transmit a reply from the tag to answer “who I am”, "here it is", and “this is what". Information is fully customizable to your company’s specific needs, enabling real time updates on work in progress, history and maintenance schedules, precise location coordinates, and even image storage ability for visual verification.
With recent advancements in RFID technology, the ability to share real-time information within an organization and between multiple organizations has become cost-effective and is proving to be invaluable within several industries.
RFID Tag: Tags come in many different shapes and sizes, which are uniquely built for a variety of specific applications. Generally a tag consist of a microchip holding digital information, an antenna that emits an identification signal through radio waves, and a battery for real-time tracking and long range applications.
RFID Reader: A device that is used to communicate with the RFID tag. All devices including desktop computers, laptops, or handheld readers have the ability to read and write data to and from the tag.
RFID Software: Software is an application that communicates information and user commands between the physical and virtual environments. Triple-i develops and provides custom software tailored to address specific company needs. Our powerful Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) features powerful tools including real-time SMS and e-mail alerts, automatic shipping and billing lists, physical auditing, remote inventory visibility and many more functional features in real time.
The advantages of RFID over conventional methods of inventory management are ground-breaking. RFID’s primary objectives are to enhance inventory visibility throughout the supply chain, and to provide accurate and real-time information for quick and informed decisions.
