RFID4U Intros New Asset-Tracking Module

RFID4U, a global RFID solutions provider, has announced that it has released a new module as part of its TagMatiks platform, known as TagMatiks Asset Tracking (AT) Lite. The application is a lightweight version of the enterprise asset-tracking module, the company reports, designed to jump-start an RFID-based asset-tracking initiative.

The solution is available as a standalone Microsoft Windows-based application for ease of installation and setup. The software provides the ability to connect to a handheld RFID scanner for data collection. Users can leverage the accompanying RFID handhelds to conduct checkouts and check-ins of assets, as well as annotate due dates to pull reporting of overdue items. The RFID handheld can be used to perform a quick guided cycle count to determine variances. The system reports back expected, matched, missing and misplaced assets. Pre-printed, pre-encoded TagMatiks labels and on-metal tags can be paired to assets.

"When you're starting off with an RFID-based asset-tracking software, it's a lot easier to start out simple and prove out your use case," said Archit Dua, RFID4U's director of strategic development, in a prepared statement. "TagMatiks AT Lite provides the ability to quickly install the entire system onto most Windows laptops, computers and tablets. With this, you cut out a lot of the friction required to get your project rolling so you can focus on the benefits RFID brings to the table."

TagMatiks AT Lite has a one-click migration to the full-fledged version of TagMatiks AT, so users need not worry about data migration or efforts already invested in tagging assets. All data, images and reports are ready to use in the full enterprise version, the company reports. "Another key benefit of TagMatiks AT Lite is the extensive RFID device support offered," Archit said in the prepared statement. "Users have the ability to choose from the best of RFID handhelds available in the market place."
