Exploring RFID for Border & Immigration Services 

In order to make thorough, well informed choices about who can or cannot enter or exit the country, it’s important for Border & Immigration Service officers to have the safest and most efficient work environments possible. Creating safe, efficient work environments for the Border & Immigration Services industry involves taking every precaution necessary to make sure they always have control and visibility of the resources and equipment available to them.

Applying Asset Tracking

Managing equipment is a crucial part of running the most efficient and safest Border & Immigration Service facility possible. Therefore, every piece of equipment intended to help border & immigration officers maintain order, and keep trouble out must be properly taken care of. The everyday routine of the average border & immigration officer is unpredictable so it’s important that every piece of equipment they use is consistently reliable, in order to ensure maximum efficiency.

Work schedules need to be tracked, and every document, and piece of identification, that helps border & immigration service professionals form opinions about an individual’s choice to emigrate or immigrate is valuable.

With our experience in deploying RFID technology to track assets, a way to ensure that equipment is properly taken care of may be developed, thereby preventing the loss or damage of equipment. Upon it’s implementation, it will also make it easy to locate documents quickly and efficiently, while keeping documentation safe, visible, and easily accessible. 

Applying People Tracking

Because managing a large volume of people daily is an important part of any Border & Immigration Service Professional’s job it’s important to have an efficient tool for managing personnel. It’s also important to keep the facility as secure as possible, in case of worst-case scenarios, where immigration becomes a source of conflict. RFID Badges can be used to verify the identity of visitors and employees in order to confirm identity, pinpoint the location of personnel, and provide maximum visibility and security throughout the building.

Applying Access Control

Controlling access to Border & Immigration Facilities is an important part of making sure that the border, employees, and all visitors, intending to cross the border, are safe and properly treated. It also means that the facility is prepped for emergencies, and operates in the most efficient manner possible. By using the fundamentals of RFID technology to access control, we may be able to provide your security team a great opportunity to maintain a database of employee and visitor activity, and control access to designated areas.
