RFID / GPS BASED ERP’s SOLUTIONS - Overview

Companies in India and Worldwide are constantly looking for usable, cost effective technologies to reduce their Asset Management costs. As assets multiply , the need is never more than now, to manage the growth in a controlled way, reduce wastage, improve  utilization  and  thereby,  improve  the  bottom  line  of  the  business. This addressable  industry  verticals  include  Education  campuses  for  Monitoring  students, manufacturing companies for Tracking Inventory, integrated logistics players, car rental companies, limousine services , mining companies, oil tanker industry, courier companies, insurance and leasing companies and many more.

These companies over the years need to work with professional technology companies who not only provide them robust, cost effective solutions to track and trace their assets, but also work as business consultants to their operations team, constantly providing them top quality service to “listen to their assets”. We focus on such products and solutions that help the corporates realize better control and visibility over their assets through convergent technologies of RFID and GPS, a robust platform that provides end to end asset visibility and life cycle management.

Radio frequency identification, or RFID, is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. There are several methods of identification, but the most common is to store a serial number that identifies a person or object, and perhaps other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna (the chip and the antenna together are called an RFID transponder or an RFID tag). The antenna enables the chip to transmit the identification information to a reader. The reader converts the radio waves reflected back from the RFID tag into digital information that can then be passed on to computers that can make use of it.

 

 

Unlike traditional bar-codes, RFID chips give every tagged object a unique identification code. Companies will soon use RFID to track the billions of objects transported around the world every year in planes, trucks and ships, through ports and warehouses, on to store shelves, and into homes and offices. Accurate tracking will save hundreds of billions of dollars a year by improving the channels of distribution and reducing labor costs, inventory, and theft.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. The system provides critical capabilities to military, civil and commercial users around the world. It is maintained by the United States government and is freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver.

While originally a military project, GPS is considered a dual-use technology, meaning it has significant military and civilian applications.

GPS has become a widely deployed and useful tool for commerce, scientific uses, tracking, and surveillance. GPS's accurate time facilitates everyday activities such as banking, mobile phone operations, and even the control of power grids by allowing well synchronized hand-off switching

The RFID tag can be affixed to an object and used to track and manage inventory, assets, people, etc. For example, it can be affixed to cars, computer equipment, books, mobile phones, etc.

RFID offers advantages over manual systems or use of bar codes. The tag can be read if passed near a reader, even if it is covered by the object or not visible. The tag can be read inside a case, carton, box or other container, and unlike barcodes, RFID tags can be read hundreds at a time.
