|Highlight Functions & System Deployment
The system provides automatic data, and eliminate the existence time difference between goods receiving or storage and data inputting.
Asset tracking system
aZaaS implements an asset tracking solution of multi-tenant RFID (radio frequency identification) for Toll. Taking cloud as the background, the system integrates with the RFID platform, and assigns portable RFID readers to the staff.
The RFID platform equipped with GPS and 3G connection is installed in a transport truck, which contains a unique ID code. When the goods are delivered at the company, employees use a handheld device to scan the bar code and read the RFID tags of pallet, then they match the bar code and RFID data and send to the back-end data management system based on the cloud.
Asset tracking system replaces the manual counting works, because daily fabrics are counted automatically when they are carried on and off the truck. And this information along with their position will be sent to the cloud by intermittently connected 3G network.
The portable RFID reader connected to cloud can easily get and update information about daily fabrics at any place and any time.
