AssetGather for Rapid Inventory is a simple and complete handheld-based RFID solution that helps speed up the process of inventorying large numbers of assets of any kind, dispersed over multiple areas.
Most organizations are required to perform asset audits periodically. Audits are an essential part of enterprise asset management strategy. Audits are also often required for compliance reasons. As any asset manager would attest, manually performing an audit is expensive, tedious, disruptive and error-prone. Crawling under desks and leaning over equipment while attempting to scan asset barcodes or read off serial numbers is a common sight. For these reasons, audits are not conducted as often as one should. Yearly audits don’t give a good snapshot of where the assets are located or what their status is. It is for these reasons, traditional asset management databases are woefully out of date. This results in wasteful capital expenditures, regulatory non-compliance and other avoidable inefficiencies.
RFID for rapid inventorying of assets
RFID unlike barcode does not need line of sight while scanning. Additionally, multiple RFID tags can be scanned at the same time, which results in huge productivity gains. These features make RFID advantageous for use in rapid inventorying, especially when the task needs to be performed more often and where automation of the process is desired. An RFID solution can help provide a much more up-to-date view of asset locations than is possible with manual inventory or with barcode.
