Where Can I Get an RFID Asset-Tracking System for Small Businesses?

Published: April 8, 2010

Our small engineering firm is interested in employing radio frequency identification to track assets from a tools store. Are there any systems designed for a smaller user to track, say, 1,000 items within a workshop environment?

ToolHound and CribMaster are both designed for companies of all sizes, and enable you to track which personnel removed which tools from storage areas. These systems also allow you to monitor scheduled maintenance. They are not designed to locate items in real time in a large facility, but they should work well for smaller shops.

I’m sure there are several RFID vendors reading this that can provide a low-cost solution. Any companies that have a solution specifically geared to smaller companies are invited to post their contact information below.
