Tracking IT and Electronics Around the World for a Government Agency

When a large government contractor was looking for a cost-effective solution to track IT and other electronic equipment all around the world for a government agency, Vizinex RFID and The Danby Group collaborated to provide the solution.

The issue was a common one – the need to guarantee that assets were where management thought they were when it came time for government audits.

The contractor was looking for a more cost efficient and flexible solution than had previously been used to inventory a variety of IT and electronic assets at sites around the globe. The Danby Group proposed its bring your own device (BYOD) technology to reduce the hardware/software costs and increase the flexibility of the system.

Danby’s BYOD platform consists of TSL 1128 Bluetooth RFID readers, to which an iPhone, iPod or iPad can be connected and data read and processed by the Verbi Assets software application developed by Verbi, Inc.

As inventory items are scanned, the software provides data on what is there, what should be there and what is missing. The low hardware/software costs and the higher data capture speeds associated with this system provide a healthy ROI for the customer.

In addition to the software, radio frequency identification tag selection was also critical. Given the variety of assets being tagged and the requirement for worldwide usage, a single tag was desired to increase the ease of implementation.

Vizinex RFID recommended its Sentry Duo tag for the application and provided sample product for onsite evaluation with the new BYOD platform. The Sentry Duo is a multi-surface EU/US band tag that offers the added flexibility to be used as a hangtag when surface real estate is limited.

With the successful pilot testing completed, full implementation of the new asset management system is slated for February 2016. The Danby Group expects high growth in its BYOD technology and continues to look to Vizinex RFID for the right RFID tag solution for its customers.
