It made sense for us to significantly expand our existing relationship with Radiant RFID and apply their innovative technology to solve the challenge of tracking large numbers of devices and equipment across the State of Texas. Mark Doggett, TX DPS CIO
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
Radiant RFID is pleased to announce a landmark partnership with the Texas Department of Public Safety for asset tracking using RFID. In this new partnership, the DPS will now utilize Radiant RFID’s adaptive suite of asset tracking tools to manage and track the locations of their highly diverse and mobile inventory of assets such as computer equipment and protective gear.
“We have been working with Radiant RFID for several years using their services to track evacuees during hurricane evacuations while also ensuring our emergency management equipment and related mobile devices are kept in a constant state of readiness,” said Texas DPS Chief Information Officer, Mark Doggett. “It made sense for us to significantly expand our existing relationship with Radiant RFID and apply their innovative technology to solve the challenge of tracking large numbers of devices and equipment across the State of Texas.”
Unlike most asset management tools, Radiant RFID’s solution helps the DPS know where the asset is located or if it has been transferred to another department, not just it’s cost center or depreciated value. Radiant RFID’s online asset transfer functionality eliminates paper forms and manual entries previously required to transfer equipment and assets as people and their items moved from department to department. The new online asset transfer system sends an email to the receiving department’s property custodian which then accepts or rejects an asset transfer request. Radiant RFID’s system also keeps a detailed history of where the asset has been and where the asset is currently located. Utilizing the latest in RFID technology from Motorola/Symbol®, Radiant’s Virtual Asset Tracker enables monitoring of all types of assets used by the DPS.
“We are proud to expand our relationship with the Texas Department of Public Safety, the state’s premier law enforcement agency,” said Cynthia Rubio-Ratton, President & Co-founder of Radiant RFID. “Similar to many large corporations, the Texas DPS needs to know the physical location of their numerous assets - at any given point in time. Through the use of GPS and RFID asset tracking technology, Radiant’s solution helps the DPS to know the location of all of their assets – even if the assets are transferred to a new location or department.”
