RFID Wristbands For Event Management

Whether an individual is hosting a music festival, purveying tickets at a water park, managing a multi-day, multi-session conference or orchestrating any other large group affair, choosing RFID wristbands can enhance the event on multiple levels.

In diverse ways, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is emerging worldwide as the "in" thing in event management. Metalcraft is at the forefront of the surge.

RFID Tracking Technology Is Keeping Your Kids Safe

Already college campuses throughout North America are experimenting with RFID technology as a means of keeping track of the whereabouts of their students, at least while on campus. With the ever-prevalent threat of theft and assault on college, as well as several infamous campus shootings in recent years, some colleges have squared away sizable budgets to keep track of their student body, moment-by-moment, in the event of a crisis or necessary evacuation.

How RFID EPC Codes Work

When using electronic asset numbering, RFID technology identifies assets to enable operations of all sorts to improve their ROI. Financial returns are routinely, if subtly, felt in major infrastructures such as power and utility systems, oil pipeline networks, electrical grids, agricultural enterprises and transportation networks where rugged and portable RFID is often used in the field. But, asset numbering is equally apparent in enterprises like medicine, manufacturing and retail trade where business is transacted, more or less, under one roof-not to mention its use in transit.

RFID & Work In Process: A Partnership in Efficiency

Today, RFID is everywhere in partnership with Work In Process applications (WIP). This partnership leads to benefits in business operations that are life changing. Admittedly, RFID performs very well when it comes to identifying assets, but beyond its identification function, it touts additional benefits in operational efficiency.

Here are a few examples where operational efficiency is inherently implied.

Even Ben Franklin Knew the Importance of Tool Tracking

“Lost time is never found again.” 
― Benjamin Franklin

This quote attributed to Ben Franklin, who, along with  many impressive accomplishments, was noted for his wisdom.  What he said is as true then as it is today;  there are only so many hours in the day and every second that is wasted is gone forever.

Lost time and mismanaged processes continue to be a thorn in the side of many business, especially, those where equipment or specialty tools need to be used and accounted for on a daily basis to get the job done.
