GAO RFID Produces Smart Cabinet Checkout System

GAO RFID has introduced an integrated business solution for tracking the checkout and return of assets from within a cabinet. The company's Smart Checkout Cabinet is a self-service system designed for businesses that require employees and contractors to borrow assets in order to complete their day-to-day tasks.

Assets such as portable tools, safety items, technology devices and keys can be inventoried, checked out and tracked automatically in real time, using RFID technology that works with any cabinets fitted with an electronic strike. As a result, employees and contractors can check out and return items, while the system's flexible reporting features provide managers with visibility into asset use.

This integrated solution optimizes the management and monitoring of important assets by improving the speed and functionality of the tracking process. Compared to other traditional approaches for tracking the checkout and return of assets, the Smart Checkout system offers an automated method for reducing the risk of loss and theft, while assigning accountability for their use. The solution offers a simple workflow, the company reports. Item removal and return are automatically recognized by the cabinet, and the system summarizes the items borrowed, assigns them to a particular user and records the transaction in the database.

The Smart Checkout System for Cabinets is available in two versions: Tap (contact for required checkout) and Air (contactless checkout). It includes a badge reader, an item reader, access badges, asset tags, an industrial-grade touchscreen and GAO RFID's Smart Cabinet Checkout software.
