Sometimes all you need to know is “where is it?” Locating that asset or equipment for whatever reason can be a long and laborious task. Even just counting those assets can be a thorny process without some automation. But with Silent Partner Technologies (SPT) RTLS RFID solution all these issues just disappear. With a push of one button on a PC and the RFID application is taking an inventory of all your assets all over the world, in hundreds of geographical locations. Instantly, the asset database is being updated with “new location” information as assets and/or inventory items move from location to location. All of these functions are performed with the SPT RFID RTLS solution at reasonable costs as opposed to other technologies that can cost in the hundreds of thousands (sometimes even millions of dollars). For installations that want to complement and/or have needs to track less expensive assets, you can use the same SPT database with short range RFID PDAs (or short range RFID portals) which can read standard barcode, and/or short range passive RFID tags.
Because the solution is a web based asset tracking application (Saas), it’s easy to implement and requires very little IT support. The system is made up of three components: the SPT RFID readers , RFID portals, the SPT RFID applications and its associated RFID tags. As assets/inventory items pass by RFID portals/exciters throughout all of clients locations, the database is updated with move and new location information.
