SAN JOSE, Calif. — January 06, 2010 - AssetPulse, a leading provider of real-time asset tracking solutions, announced that its flagship product, AssetGather, was ranked as the best product of 2009. Healthcare Technology Online reviewed the most popular products in their year end's special newsletter, in which the AssetGather RFID asset tracking solution was rated as the first among the Top 10 products of 2009.
The AssetGather platform is designed to work simultaneously with different types of technologies passive RFID, Active RFID, RTLS, sensors and even barcodes. The AssetGather solution can be deployed with fixed RFID readers, handheld RFID readers or both. AssetPulse works with a variety of reader and RFID tag vendors which allows them to propose the best solutions that work for a customer's scenario.
It is this flexibility to work with multiple radio frequencies that makes AssetPulse products attractive to the healthcare industry. Customers have the option of using active RFID to track assets that are mobile or critical, for example, wheelchairs. Whereas, Passive RFID tags and handheld readers could be used to track less mobile assets like ventilators or even IT equipment. Both technologies can co-exist within the same system giving users a centralized view of all their assets.
"There are a lot of critical assets being maintained by organizations in the Healthcare industry. Therefore, it is not surprising to see the interest in using RFID to help track and manage these assets, not just medical equipment or consumables but also inventory of IT Assets within hospitals." remarks Sujatha Bodapati, CEO of AssetPulse. "We are happy that AssetGather has been ranked as the top product of 2009 by Healthcare Technology online, which is a premier Internet resource for healthcare technology news and trends. We hope that our products combined with RFID, RTLS and sensor technologies would continue to improve efficiencies for consumers in 2010 and beyond."
