How Historic: RFID in Museums & Archeology

RFID technology has been implemented in a number of ways at historical sites across the world.

 

  • A prison museum in Denmark builds attendee experience by assigning each patron a particular prisoner identity via RFID badge. The badge triggers different reactions and happenings at the various exhibits for a more immersive visit.

 

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York utilizes RFID to monitor the condition of artwork. More specifically, RFID sensors monitor temperature, humidity, and general environmental conditions around the paintings and artistic pieces.

 

  • A national museum in Taiwan is using RFID to monitor inventory and movement as well as entry and exit into 24 art warehouses using portal technology. In addition, the facility also tracks its B2B loans of paintings and artifacts.

In the Fitting Room: Valuable Fitting Room Data

As the retail landscape becomes more and more competitive, customer data and details are becoming increasingly important, and nowhere is off limits – not even the fitting room.

 

A retail strategy officer noted, “Every time a customer comes in and out of the fitting room, they’re demonstrating a choice about your product.”

 

Knowing how to respond to that customers choice through technology and in-store experience is key. Tracking products via RFID, brands can view performance at the item level and harness valuable fitting room data.

 

Additionally, smart fitting rooms can assist patrons in accessorizing, requesting different sizes or colors, and viewing similar products. This data contributes to both inventory and store layout decisions. Items that are not selected for try-on or that do not convert are removed. Successful pieces are promoted.

 

“The idea is that the better experience someone has in the fitting room, the more likely they are to buy… and customers still want to see how something fits before committing.”

Time for a Tune Up: Car & Data Center Maintenance

Whether you’re operating a vehicle or a data center facility, a few commonalities exist that keep things running smoothly and on the right track.

 

  1. Scheduled Maintenance

 

In a vehicle, these tasks consist of fluid checks and various inspections. In a data center, procedures like deep cleaning, zinc whisker remediation and CFD analysis are essential.

 

  1. The Warranty

 

Car parts and data center equipment usually come with manufacturer standards and recommendations. For a vehicle, this might include a particular oil to be used for the engine. In a data center, the air containment ratio is typically outlined for the longest life of a CRAC unit.

 

  1. The Inventory

 

Missing a spare tire or a server when you need it most is enough to bring any road trip or database migration to a screeching halt. An accurate account of what’s in your rig or DC is immeasurably helpful.

 

 

Don’t Let the Wheels Fall Off

 

EDP partners with a team of specialists to clean and maintain your data center in accordance with warranty and equipment requirements. Their patented asset management system can efficiently identify, track, and manage all of your IT assets faster and more accurately than traditional methodologies.

How To Steal from an IoT Company

Spoiler: You Don’t

 

 

Burglars broke into a large warehouse and office building in California earlier this month.  They loaded up on laptops, cameras, sensors, and charging equipment.

 

Seems like a great haul, right?

 

Unfortunately for the criminals, all of these devices had some form of IoT tracking capabilities – from WiFi and GPS to Bluetooth and RFID.

 

When employees of the IoT organization arrived that morning, they booted up their asset-tracking systems and commanded the missing items to remote identify. With the help of the local police, all property was returned and suspects were in custody in just a few hours.

 

Thinking About the Worst Case Scenario… So You Don’t Have To

 

EnaSys high-value inventory control delivers a comprehensive solution that is intuitive to use and provides comprehensive results through extensive asset-tracking capabilities. EnaSys allows user to not only frequently audit their assets in a fraction of the time of normal methodologies, but it provides a chain-of-custody report for each asset from inception to disposal.

Retail’s Biggest Disruptor – Digital-First Retail

A recent study just revealed retail’s biggest disruptor, and it’s not ecommerce. It’s a phenomenon called digital-first retail.

 

Today, in the retail sphere, consumers’ paths to purchase are being constantly and dramatically influenced by digital channels in a variety of locations, including in-store via displays, mobile engagement and other interactive experiences. And while ecommerce comprises approximately 10% of sales for the average retail company, digitally influenced brick & mortar sales are estimated to be more than five times that.

 

Interactive online content on personal and in-store mobile devices is becoming an increasingly powerful tool to influence the buyers’ journey and communicate brand stories.

Tracking Medical Assets & Preventing the Next Superbug

Mobile devices like tablets and handheld monitoring equipment are becoming more and more visible in the healthcare industry, providing easy access to patient data and secure channels for peer collaboration.

 

tracking medical assets

 

But, according to a new study, approximately 70% of healthcare workers’ mobile devices harbor dangerous bacteria.

 

Because these pieces of technology are routinely handled in conjunction with contamination, placed near faces, and housed in warm, dark pockets, they breed disease, including antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Over 2 million patients in the United States contract these expensive and hard-to-treat infections.

 

Proper disinfection, cleaning and sanitation of this (and all) equipment is absolutely necessary. It is equally essential that these processes are tracked and recorded as they are completed as well as routinely scheduled.

 

However, just within this past decade, hospitals and healthcare facilities relied only on paper-based reporting for their asset-tracking needs.

 

Making Modern Medicine More Modern

 

EnaSys offers a complete and automated asset-tracking solution that incorporates proper disinfecting and cleaning methodologies in a reliable, integrated manner to capture all physical infrastructure assets from deployment to decommissioning and from wheelchairs to tablets.

 

Our asset-tracking system provides completes tracking and typically provides a payback of just over a year and is supported by multi-level services to help you successfully deploy your program. Just as importantly, it accomplishes this in one-tenth of the time of traditional methods. This allows you to audit more frequently, reduce costs, and prevent the next superbug from spreading.
