RFID Support within RentControl

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) applies an RFID tag to an asset for the purpose of identification and tracking using radio waves. Tags are small, durable (they can be attached to linen and will withstand washing), and can be read from several meters away. Tagging assets with RFID tags is not dissimilar from barcoding, but has advantages over barcoding. One being that RFID tags can be read without having to visually locate the tag. This makes them useful for reading all the tags in a plastic bag full of linens, for example. If the linens were barcoded, each barcode would have to be individually scanned.

RentControl has built-in facilities for working with RFID-tagged items:

rental softwareYou can put items into inventory either by scanning each item's RFID tag or by adding a number of items to inventory and asking RentControl to add RFID numbers to each according to a specified sequence.

RFID reader RFID UHF Readers like TSL's 1128 can read multiple tags at a time from a fairly generous distance and a decently wide area. The 1128 uses BlueTooth technology, which comes standard on many of the new PCs and tablets. But if the machine doesn't support BlueTooth natively, dongles are very inexpensive ways of providing BlueTooth access. RFID technology is especially useful when tags are not easy to see or when lots of the tags are jumbled together.
