RFID VEHICLE VISIBILITY SOLUTION

Description

Identify RFID Fleet Visibility Solution is a fully automated, accurate and robust RFID enabled solution.  Each vehicle is fitted with a passive RFID tag and fixed RFID readers are used to seamlessly capture entry, exit or internal movements of individual vehicle.  The authorized person can effectively monitor the status of a particular vehicle.  The solution has three modules including entry/exit, loading/unloading and weighting modules and is designed in a modular format.  It can be chosen to track both truck and truck trailer or one of them.   Additionally, the solution can be selected implement only entry and exit module or the whole system including entry/exit, loading/unloading and weighting modules.

How it works

Identify has developed a RFID fleet visibility solution for fleet management which includes hardware, middleware and software and consists of different modules which can be purchased separately according to the customer’s needs.

  • Entrance and Exit management module: This module is related to the process of registration upon arrival and departure.
  • Loading and uploading module: All processes occurring from loading or unloading the trucks to storage process including start loading, loading complete, and lock seal.
  • Weighting module:  After loading complete, all carriers are moved to weighbridge to confirm weight before departure.  This module also covers the operation on tare weight and the calculate net weight for each truck

RFID tags are mounted on either trucks or its trailer or both.  The fixed RFID readers are placed at strategic locations such as entry/ exit gates, weigh bridges, and loading/unloading areas. This allows complete automated wireless identification of vehicles without impacting existing vehicle processes.  As vehicles pass through a certain section, the transponder sends data to the reader. Through the reader’s antenna, all information about the vehicle is passed to the server.  The detected raw RFID data is processed and can be used to drive multiple of applications. For example, the RFID gate readers can report the time that the vehicle passes through the entry or exit gate.  The RFID reader at the weight bridge can automate weighting operation, while the RFID reader at the loading bay can be used to enhance the loading activity.

RFID POOL ASSET SOLUTION (MEDICAL)

Description

Keeping track of your pool medical equipment can be challenging, especially when logging their locations relies on manual process.  Efficient organizing this asset is a must to guarantee optimal reliability throughout the operation. If the asset cannot be found, this can cause serious impact on the operation.  This is the reason why the comprehensive system for the registration of asset flows is required.

Identify RFID Pool Asset Management is a proven solution to deliver a quick return on investment (ROI). This solution allows for automation of paper work associated with despatch and receipt, so you can optimise the utilization your assets and improve your service levels. Accurate stock level of this asset can allow you to invest in higher quality pool assets which provide longer life cycles.

How it works

To track the pool asset, we employ radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to improve the management of these assets. Each pool asset is firmly attached with an RFID tag which can identify individual pieces of equipment.  The RFID readers are installed in the entrance and departure points of these assets and the key destinations.  To determine the complete flow of the asset, the information of the particular asset is used.  The system process is activated via the reader at the departure area, where the HN of the patient using with these assets is manually recorded into the system.  When the assets are returned from the usage and read by the RFID reader at the entrance.  The information is sent back to a central database where it can be analysed. This system allows you to determine how many pool assets have been dispatched to a particular HN so you know which patient to contact for their return.  The software will calculate the charge on the using of these assets for particular patient.  This will help the hospital to be able to bill the patient properly unlike before where there is no usage information.  The system also notifies the asset which is needed to be calibrated to ensure the asset is used in the good condition.

Benefits

  • Track and trace of all assets
  • Reduction of working capital through accurate stock management
  • Clear visibility on stock levels
  • Maximises the use of your available pool assets
  • Helps prevent your assets getting lost or stolen
  • Conduct annual asset inventory in seconds. No need to stop operation for days or weeks for yearly inventory checking
  • Identifies shortages or oversized stock for better management
  • Find your optimal asset utilization ratio.  Save your investment in the expensive buffers. 
  • Improve your safety.  Eliminate human error to make your operation safer in using the equipment in good conditions.

Applications:

  • Pool assets in hospital

RFID INTELLIGENT CABINET SOLUTION

Description

Managing medical supplies and devices is a demanding task.  The manufacturers have developed numerous intricate distribution models, which heavily rely on the field inventory staff.  Hospital customer services call to sale representatives inquiring about the particular piece of inventory.  A field inventory staff needs to deliver that product to the RIGHT hospital on the RIGHT time.  Unlike the retail sector where a stock-out usually means a lost sale but the stock-out in the health industry must be avoided at all expenses because this puts patient safety at risk.  Besides, the challenge for field inventory staff is product visibility.  Traditionally the product status is manually recorded by field inventory staff which proves to be less productive.  In many cases an implant can sit as consigned inventory at a hospital for years.

Identify RFID Intelligent Cabinet Solution presents the most proactive solution for automating inventory management on site.  Our solution connects RFID reader with IOT technology.  When the devices are connected to the internet, they become an extension of our system.  We can eliminate all manual recording and turn this process to be paperless.  The status of the device can be informed in the real time manner without increasing operation cost on the on-site inspection.

How it works

We have employed both Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and IOT technologies for this solution.  Each device is affixed with RFID tag.  Our software will associate RFID tag with key product information such as SKU and its expiry date.  We have both short range and long range RFID readers in our cabinet.  The short range reader is designed to increase the security while the long range reader is employed for tracking purpose.  Only the authorized person with the right RFID card, can access to this cabinet through the short range reader.  The long range reader will scan all devices in the cabinet on schedule.  After reading the tags, all tag ID is sent to cloud server for data analysis.

This system allows you to monitor the devices on sites without assigning someone to manually count the devices on site as usual.  The system also notifies the devices which are needed to be replenished and the items with low movement.  This information will help you to plan the stock on each site.  It also highlights the items which are going to expire in order to ensure patient safety.
