Companies in a variety of industries rely on critical assets to drive their business. Although industries vary, the need for effective asset management is universal. Any item that is a part of the work process but does not leave as part of a finished product is a candidate for intelligent asset management with Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID). RFID can help enterprise companies automatically track and secure critical assets. This real-time technology takes asset management to the next level, providing unprecedented visibility, accuracy and security. With RFID, companies can automatically keep track of key assets as they move in and out of an area such as; a stock room, airport hangar, data center, enterprise workplace or transport terminal.
