Application adds automated RFID to physical IT asset tracking

ODIN's customers are excited about I AM™ because it installs quickly and allows them to inventory assets in hours instead of weeks.

ODIN today announced the formal release of Intelligent Asset Management (I AM™) software for tracking IT Assets in the data center or office environment. The software is designed to easily integrate with existing Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions such as Sunflower Systems, BMC Remedy, IBM Maximo, Oracle, HP Asset Manager, Savi SmartChain, and others. I AM™ enables faster and more accurate asset audits, significantly reduces inventory costs, and ensures a higher security environment. Studies have shown that taking asset inventories with RFID in Data Centers, secure storage, and office locations is more than five times faster than bar code methods. In addition to the time savings, Gartner Group estimates most organizations have a 30% discrepancy between expected asset inventory and actual asset inventory due to poor asset management and manual systems-- RFID can mitigate that 30% loss.

I AM™ is asset tracking software that is built upon ODIN's EasyEdge™ RFID device management software. I AM™ was developed for ODIN customers who want to easily add RFID capabilities to their existing Enterprise Asset Management software and leverage their significant investment in those systems. I AM™ was also developed for those who didn't have EAM, but needed to migrate from spreadsheet driven tracking to an easy to use application. The I AM™ software solution can be installed in as little as one day and integrated quickly into other standards based software.

"ODIN's goal is to ensure RFID solutions are both accurate and easy to use. In our past deployments we could reliably ensure RFID system accuracy, but found our customers struggling with integrating RFID into their physical asset management & security processes. ODIN developed I AM™ so end users would finally have an easy-to-use RFID asset tracking solution that can augment traditional Enterprise Asset Management software or operate stand-alone," commented ODIN's founder Patrick J. Sweeney II.    He added, "ODIN's customers are excited about I AM™ because it installs quickly and allows them to inventory assets in hours instead of weeks."

ODIN's head of software development, John Kelvie, commented, "I AM™ is the logical extension of EasyEdge™ RFID device management software. Since we already had a robust RFID device control software platform, adding integration and application functionality so end users could more easily track their assets with RFID, solved a recurring customer need. We were also fortunate to have some great initial customers with tough usability and integration requirements. This helped us really focus on building for scalability from the beginning."

About I AM™, Intelligent Asset Management

I AM™ is the first RFID software designed for highly accurate read rates and automated asset management through the physics of RFID. The software is first and foremost an RFID specific asset management tool designed to provide mission critical data to enterprise applications. I AM™'s architecture, born out of ODIN's award-winning lab, is designed to very easily integrate with enterprise resource planning applications (ERP) and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) while reliably providing 99.9% read rates.

I AM™, maximizes RFID accuracy and adds value to existing asset management and ERP software-- applications where most companies already have significant investment. The software is built on ODIN's EasyEdge™ RFID edge software and EasyMonitor™ monitoring and management software for a fully automated RFID infrastructure. This means fewer resources are required to manage more RFID readers. The software can function as a light-weight stand-alone system as well. The original design was for global data center asset management and is based on decades of data center experience. The solution has been extended to track office IT assets such as laptops, desktop PCs, printers, and networking gear. Find out more about I AM™ here.
