The architectural and engineering industry is responsible for the creation of homes and commercial buildings across Canada and the U.S. Thus, it is largely driven by construction activity in both the residential and business sectors. Government spending and the general healthiness of the economy will directly impact a firm’s ability to attract a constant stream of building projects. GAO RFID is highly knowledgeable about the challenges that exist in this field. That’s why a number of architecture and engineering firms have benefited greatly through the use of our innovative RFID technology.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Architecture & Engineering Industries
Find out how you can improve your company’s operations by seeing how GAO has dealt with challenges at other firms. Our sophisticated brand of RFID systems can be easily integrated into your company’s existing framework. Read on to see how we’ve responded to critical issues in this dynamic industry.
Question: Our offices contain highly-sensitive blueprints and regulatory documents. How can we use GAO RFID to prevent loss, theft, and vandalism?
Our Asset Tracking System is designed to help keep an organization’s most important assets safe and secure. Whether you’re tracking drawings, CAD hardware or private documents, RFID Asset Tracking is your solution. Specialized RFID Tags are affixed to your various assets. These Tags have unique IDs and are then assigned with the details of the item. Our team will then place RFID Readers at strategic points within your office. Track your assets in real-time as they move past these Readers or are stored in cabinets and filing storage areas. All information regarding their whereabouts will be sent to a centralized database within your office. Whenever an asset is required, you can quickly use our software to track and locate it in seconds. Alerts can also be sent via email to managers once any of these assets are removed from the office, ensuring real-time response to possible theft scenarios.
Question: Our storage rooms contain boxes and boxes of paperwork. Sorting through them has become time-consuming for our employees. Can we use RFID to categorize all this paperwork?
Absolutely. GAO RFID offers document management solutions via our RFID Asset Tracking System that uses the power of our Tag and Reader configurations. Simply assign RFID Tags to your boxes of paperwork (or each individual document themselves) and enter categorical information into the system that will help you identify these documents quicker. No need to flip through reams of paper anymore. Our RFID Readers readily scan the RFID Tags installed on the boxes and documents and send them to a centralized database. You can an then use of web-based software to quickly identify and locate the stored documents that you need.
Question: Our office is located within a larger facility, which is also owned by our company. Does GAO have an RFID system for building management?
Yes. If your operation is part of a larger logistical initiative, then GAO RFID’s Access Control System is the framework for you. The benefit of this system is that it can work in conjunction with our other solutions. For example, when monitoring the ins-and-outs of your facility, you can take aspects of GAO’s RFID Access Control System and merge them with the security protocols you already have in place. Whether it is people or vehicles, our Access Control System allows only authorized individuals carrying programmed RFID Tags/Badges to enter and exit the zones within your office. Each time a door is opened, the system will record the time and the users associated to the event, allowing you to easily lookup and analyze access data at any time.
