RFID unlocks the potential to automate and improve your asset tracking operations. With RFID, you’ll be able to speed up audits, track asset locations better, and improve high-value asset management procedures.

How Does RFID Asset Tracking Work?

RFID asset tracking works with the use of RFID asset tags. Then, you’ll use hardware to set how these tags are used and scanned. 

These tags relate to unique asset profiles. So, the physical hardware can read the tag and discern which asset is going through a change. In other words, if an asset moves location, your RFID system will be able to understand which asset is moving and where it is.

There are two main types of RFID tracking available.


Handheld RFID Asset Management

Handheld RFID asset management uses handheld readers which link to your asset tracking app via BlueTooth.

Handheld RFID asset management is incredibly useful in high-value asset tracking and in speeding up operations in a way that QR codes or barcodes don’t allow for.

For example, if you’re logging multiple assets into a new location or collection, you’ll be able to use your RFID scanner to log this. Simply hold down the trigger and detect the assets and the change will be logged for all of them simultaneously.

RFID on the whole also allows for better high-value asset tracking as you can hide RFID asset tags in a way that you can’t with QR codes or barcodes, as they require a line-of-sight to scan.


Fixed RFID Asset Tracking

Fixed RFID asset tracking provides you with even more automation. Where handheld RFID asset management works in a similar way to QR code asset management, where you still need to manually scan a tag to interact with an asset, fixed RFID removes the need for this.

Setting up fixed RFID asset tracking is a process of placing readers in tactical locations across your sites. Then, whenever your tagged assets move from one location to another, your simple RFID system will log the change automatically, without the need for any manual input.

This is very helpful for high-speed environments, where any automation will assist with operations. Hospitals, for example, will benefit from this level of automation.
