Sam Houston State University Installs Radiant RFID Asset Tracking Solution
Sam Houston State University, a member of the Texas State University System, has chosen and installed the Radiant RFID Virtual Asset Tracking Solution to inventory critical IT equipment such as desktops, laptops, servers, televisions, cameras, radios, projectors, and monitors.
“These items are integral to us as a university” said Mark Adams, CIO at Sam Houston State University. “They are high value, high visibility, and mostly portable. It makes good sense for us to use RFID technology to keep track of them. We were impressed by Radiant RFID, and the time savings and efficiencies that their system offered us. We will start with IT assets and continue to rollout the solution to many different types of items including furniture, lab equipment, vehicles, fire safety equipment, and more.”
Sam Houston State University is just one member of the Texas State University System to use Radiant RFID’s Virtual Asset Tracker. The Texas State University System is leveraging their investment in Radiant's solution across all system universities. The server software is centrally hosted at the data center located at Texas State University – San Marcos. Each additional university within the Texas State University System manages their own individual database of assets.
“When we approached the Texas State University System with an enterprise model we all agreed that it made good sense at many levels” said Kenneth Ratton, Vice President of Sales for Radiant RFID. “Each university maintains control over their own assets and data but as a whole costs are lowered through the efficiencies of central hosting. Additionally, as we come out with new enhancements and modules they are rapidly rolled out to all universities within the system so they can all take advantage of them. We look forward to working with Sam Houston State University and the Texas State University System on new and exciting uses for RFID as well as maintaining a low cost solution for overall system use.”
