Why Use RFID Tracking for Equipment?

RFID tracking has come up against a lot of competitors, including competing radio technologies, cellular tracking and GPS. That is because wireless data delivery systems are advancing at a considerable pace. With just about everything coming with wireless capabilities pre-installed, we take it for granted in everyday life. High-speed cellular networks have got us used to ridiculously fast connectivity at all times. But in equipment tracking, RFID is still a leader for cost and security. RFID tracking is also efficient and unobtrusive on a job site.

The total cost of an RFID tracking solution is often lower than other asset tracking solutions. The up-front cost of passive and active RFID tracking solutions is offset by the long lifecycle and re-usability of the components. RFID can also take advantage of existing networking solutions, such as Wi-Fi systems.

The security strengths of RFID systems are two-fold. First, RFID tracking solutions can be programmed for specific project requirements, making them adaptable for a variety of challenging conditions. Second, RFID tracking increases the security of your job site over less effective asset tracking solutions. You can optimize your operations, track equipment usage and keep your machines secure by implementing an RFID tracking solution.

Certainly, there are times when RFID may not be the best solution. But generally speaking, for tracking equipment in challenging, hard-working environments, RFID tracking will be more efficient, cost-effective and secure.
