Access Control

Most organizations today require a performing and efficient access control system. There are many reasons for having such a system and these include:

  • Enhanced security to limit access to restricted areas,
  • Tracking employee activity,
  • Improve loss prevention and
  • Compliance to higher internal or government regulated security measures post 9-11 to name just a few.

RFID technology is quickly becoming a popular choice since the advancement in technology makes a variety of solutions available to any organization.

There are major deficiencies in the legacy solutions that use the traditional access control systems. Barcodes, magnetic stripes, and proximity readers all rely on the user to either make contact or place the badge very close to the reader. In addition, bar codes can only be read one at a time and the respective embedded information cannot be updated. Such limitations can be cumbersome and time consuming.

An RFID access control system can provide an easy and efficient solution. RFID badges can be read from much further distances than other traditional technologies and the embedded electronic information for each badge can be over-written repeatedly. The increased reading distance thus enables other tracking technologies like surveillance cameras to be activated in conjunction with an employee being in their vicinity. Furthermore, multiple RFID badges can be read all at the same time. Information about employee access, attendance, and duties performed, can be easily and efficiently monitored and stored in a database. Access information can also be tied to a Windows Active Directory or LDAP for user authentication and therefore be synchronized to an authorized access scheme..

Supply Chain

Accurate identification and tracking of goods is essential in today's highly competitive retail market. More than ever before, there is pressure on manufacturers, distributors and retailers to maximise efficiency, minimise cost and provide the best possible value for the end-customer.

The Challenge: New levels of efficiency

Companies investing in RFID are experiencing new levels of supply chain efficiency. This innovative technology is increasing the visibility of goods across the chain and beyond.

Utilising RFID technology, large quantities of information can be analysed and made available to internal and external systems in near-real time, which is proving crucial to improving the quality of business operations.

With the help of RFID, you will be able to achieve:

  • Improved tracking of high-value items.
  • Reduced shrinkage and shipping errors.
  • Inventory visibility, accuracy and efficiency.
  • Improved production planning and smart recalls.
  • Technology standards to drive down cost.

New possibilities

RFID offers a unique combination of control and flexibility. Unprecedented levels of accuracy allow manufacturers and retailers to operate and collaborate more effectively, so both can be more responsive to the needs of their customers - the end result is greatly improved on-shelf availability.
