We knew Radiant RFID from their work with the State of Texas for Evacuation Management and were comfortable with their level of expertise with RFID and asset tracking.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 14, 2011
Radiant RFID today announced that the City of Fort Worth, Texas has selected Radiant RFID's asset tracking solution, Virtual Asset Tracker, to inventory and locate all items purchased by the city using federal grant money.
Virtual Asset Tracker is a complete solution of software, RFID hardware and RFID tags that enables customers to quickly answer the question, “Where is that?” for any asset. The City of Fort Worth is tracking everything from radios to computers to the robots used by the bomb disposal unit – anything funded by federal grants.
The City of Fort Worth purchased Radiant RFID’s Software-as-a Service option and was able to go live quickly with a complete solution. “Speed and accuracy were important to us,” said Eric Carter, Homeland Security Grants Manager, City of Fort Worth Office of Emergency Management. “We knew Radiant RFID from their work with the State of Texas for Evacuation Management and were comfortable with their level of expertise with RFID and asset tracking. We learned a great deal just from the setup process about how to organize our asset system. Once we set up our data and selected RFID tags, we were able to instantly track and locate items. As we continue to add assets to our database, this will prove a tremendous help during inventories and audits.”
“Radiant was able to rapidly deploy a complete solution to the City of Fort Worth by hosting the software and completing all setup activities prior to going on-site for training,” said Kenneth Ratton, Vice President of Sales at Radiant RFID. “We spent time with the City of Fort Worth to understand their requirements and challenges and now they are moving from a time intensive, manual inventory process to an RFID asset tracking solution that enables them to quickly and effectively track the physical location of assets.”
The City of Fort Worth is using the Motorola MC3090-Z RFID handheld running the latest release of Virtual Asset Tracker. RFID tags include a mix of tags designed to provide desired read ranges on plastic, metal, and other surfaces. Radiant RFID’s Software-as-a-Service option includes on-site training.
