On Oct. 15, 2019, RFID Journal hosted a webinar provided by Ken Horton, Vizinex RFID‘s co-founder and CEO, and Al Williams, the president of SmarTrack. An archived recording of the presentation, titled “How Fort Bragg Improved Its Asset Tracking with RFID,” is now available for viewing on demand, along with the presenter’s slides.

Fort Bragg is the largest military installation in the world. The specialized RFID solution it used to track critical assets was causing problems with faulty adhesion, interrupted reads and blocked frequencies. Therefore, Vizinex RFID and Williams Software Associates teamed up to engineer an RFID solution that altered the Fort Bragg team’s approach to asset management.

During this webinar, Horton and Williams outlined the story of the deployment and the benefits of using RFID. The speakers explained how to track assets made of metal, including weapons; the difference between working with U.S. and overseas RFID suppliers; and how to engineer an RFID solution for environments unfavorable to RFID.

The next RFID Journal event will be RFID Journal LIVE! Europe 2019, which will be held on Nov. 13 in London, England. RFID technology is now being deployed at large and midsize companies to improve efficiencies, enhance visibility, reduce shrinkage and achieve other significant business benefits. This one-day event (with a day of training on Nov. 12) is designed to help companies use RFID technology to address real business challenges, determine the best RFID technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with adoption.

Then, on Apr. 28-30, 2020, RFID Journal LIVE! 2020 will be held in Orlando, Fla. LIVE! is the world’s largest and most important event focused on radio frequency identification and related technologies. Next year’s LIVE! event will feature more than 200 exhibitors from 26 countries. The conference program will offer more than 100 sessions, including more than 50 new end-user case studies, and the agenda will comprise tracks covering RFID deployments in retail, manufacturing, health care and other industries. The event will also provide RFID Professional Institute certification training on Apr. 28.
