Presently, the market is abuzz with Internet of Things (IoT), for connecting assets and transforming them into smart assets. In line with the same, “Combining IoT technologies with cloud-based data storage to quickly obtain reports and dashboards, and help operations managers locate and secure assets in real-time, optimize inventory, and improve asset management, is where our Visi-Trac software adds value,” notes Diana. The advanced RFID asset tracking platform captures a wide range of signal inputs from technologies including active and passive RFID, RTLS, Ultra Wide Band, barcode and sensors. “These RFID technologies have yielded 90 percent savings in our customers’ inventory management costs, improved asset utilization, and reduced capital expenditures,” says Ms. Hage.
Visi-Trac Interfaces to enterprise EAM/MRP systems such as IBM Maximo and IBM Tivoli Asset Management for IT. Being a decade-long business partner with IBM, RFID Global has worked with IBM on several ground-breaking projects in multiple industry segments, particularly in data center asset management, the airline industry, and the healthcare space. “IBM has been a tremendous partner for us.

They have helped us achieve greater sales reach by providing us with several opportunities to work with some of their leading clients,” states Diana.
Since its inception, RFID Global has invested in building a software platform to keep pace with the changing needs of users within the asset management arena. Furthermore, “We are focused on enhancing our Visi-Trac platform, with the aim to make our software stack seamlessly fit into iBM’s BlueMix architecture,” says Diana.
“We rely on our engineering team to design and implement RFID solutions that meet our customers’ needs, based on our Visi-Trac platform and complementary IBM software, and leverage RFID global resources around the world,” adds Diana. For instance, Cisco Systems, provider of networking, communications and collaboration technologies, required a solution to optimize and safeguard Cisco’s investment in fixed IT assets. Working with RFID Global’s Visi-Trac software, integrated with IBM’s Tivoli Asset Management for IT, Cisco has improved their cycle counts and audit accuracy, achieved better asset utilization, and increased its cost savings,” explains Diana.
With experience in defining, launching, and growing industry solutions, in the years to come RFID Global will contribute towards helping its clients’ missions to take advantage of evolving RFID technology. “We will continue to extend our footprint in selective markets—IT and healthcare and focus on working with large global supply chain projects, especially in the airline industry,” concludes Diana.
