Track and Trace
Improve asset visibility and gain peace-of-mind
Our Track & Trace solution is suitable to a wide-variety of environments and to a multitude of purposes, constantly providing you with answers to questions regarding your assets: where are they, who took them there, when and why.
All at the touch of the button, no matter the time, where you are at that moment, or on what device.
TRACK & TRACE IS THE MOST PROPER DESCRIPTION OF WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO: IT IS THE PROCESS THROUGH WHICH ASSETS (GOODS, MATERIAL OR HUMAN RESOURCES) ARE INTELLIGENTLY TAGGED TO MAKE THEM AUTOMATICALLY IDENTIFYABLE AND RECOGNIZABLE IN KEY STEPS OF THE BUSINESS PROCCESS. THIS IS A POWERFULL APPROACH, WHICH ONCE DONE RIGHT, CAN YIELD IMMEDIATE RESULTS TOWARDS EFFICIENT RESOURCE MANAGEMENT.
Functionalities and areas
Confirm that your finished product hasn’t skipped a step in its manufacture and assembly cycle and ensure proper Quality Assurance, by automatically tracking its evolution.
Gain a complete overview of the situation with your overheads from: raw materials to finished products stored in your warehouse or sent to your distributors.
Calculate the efficiency of your company by tracking what is consumed on a monthly basis, what is wasted and how internal assets can best be utilized in order to maximize profits.
Warehouse & Logistics
Efficiently organize your storage space, decrease reception and shipping time and have a complete overview of the entire Supply Chain.
Even if your products have left your warehouse, it doesn’t mean the job is done. By tracking your fleet you can know where your products are, how long until they reach their destination and find ways to increase efficiency and lower fuel consumption of your fleet by smart allocation of resources.
The environment is an ever increasing concern for any major area of human activity. Recycling alone will not solve the problems we are creating for ourselves, until we manage to do it efficiently, by tracking who pollutes, to what extent and what happens to waste once it is collected.
RFID in retail can help you ease all the operation involved in a Point-of-Sale: inventory and stock monitoring, automatic reception and check-out, security of goods and also keep you up to date with statistics regarding what products are selling fast and what products are not performing as well as it was expected.
Recall & Return
Mishaps are inherent in all production and business processes. Even though they cannot be avoided all together, it is the job of the manufacturer/ distributor to make sure that when they happen he has a clear picture on what needs to be recalled, why the mistake happened, and what can be done to avoid it.
Main components of Track & Trace with RFID
The RFID tags are the small components of an RFID system that is usually attached to the object which need to de identified/tracked.
They come in all shapes and sizes, from customizable paper label to ruggedized tags incased in ABS.
Tags need not only be suitable to the tracked object and the type of application, but also need to be compatible with the interrogator system (RFID reader + RFID antenna(s)).
The RFID reader is the electronic component which tracks the movement of the tag by identifying it automatically or on-demand when the tag enters in range.
A reader (mobile, portable or fixed) achieves this by communicating electrical impulses to one (or more) integrated (or external antennas).
Compatibility and sufficient reading distances needs to be ensured at the level of the reader.
The RFID Antenna (or antennas) are components usually attached (or integrated) into the RFID Reader which emit radio waves to which the RFID tags respond.
Just like the other components, antennas have a wide range of characteristics: frequency, power, polarization, size, ruggedness.
These need to be taken into account while building an RFID solution, because everyone of them can greatly impact the success of the implementation.
The Middleware is a software component (application or service) between the RFID system and your IT infrastructure (ERP) and ensures that the data provided by one system reaches and is understood by the other.
The integration between them can be very basic (at the level of a shared database) or through a more complex component (such as an interface, an API or an SDK).
This component can be integrated in its own application.
