By automating data collection, RFID vastly reduces human effort and error while increasing visibility.
- Enable true cost control
- Audit-proof inventory
- Protect critical information on devices
- Scale faster and more efficiently
- Support life cycle management
- Eliminate wasted resources
Limitations of bar codes
- Bar codes require line of sight and can only be read one at a time.
- 1D bar codes get wider as data increases and are limited to approximately 15 characters
- 2D bar codes use vertical dimension and contain only up to 500 characters / square inch
- Can be easily ripped or damaged
- Cannot be used for directional tracking
Radiant RFID’s Virtual Asset Tracker enables users to readily track assets in a wide variety of environments without crawling under desks, climbing on ladders, or opening cabinets. Utilizing the latest in passive RFID technology from Motorola/Symbol®, Radiant’s Virtual Asset Tracker allows the monitoring of all types of assets ranging from common IT assets such as desktops, laptops and projectors to expensive healthcare equipment, furniture and vehicles.
Radiant’s solution helps improve accuracy of inventory for compliance, increases the efficiency of the inventory process, and, in some instances, helps safeguard the tagged assets. Radiant’s solution supports both active and passive RFID depending on the customer’s environment and goals.
Because they each use label type tags, many people think that bar codes and RFID are the same. In reality, RFID is a more powerful and efficient technology. Line of sight and single read limitations prevent bar code technology from providing substantial gains in efficiency. The application of RFID technology allows for reading of multiple tags at one time without requiring line of sight.
