As we move towards a future with more renewable resources and as we search to find cleaner fuels, natural gas has become an increasingly familiar alternative for many citizens in Canada and the U.S. Households and businesses throughout the country use natural gas distribution to heat their properties. The professionals that oversee natural gas distribution serve to benefit greatly from the implementation of RFID-based solutions.
GAO RFID solutions for Natural Gas Distribution will assist these professionals in tackling the common challenges that are faced daily, including but not limited to:
- Securing residential electricity meters and thereby reducing electricity theft
- Improving service quality and productivity through effective barcode labeling
- Speeding up data entry and greatly reducing keypad errors
- Make your operations more efficient through being able to collect data in a mobile environment
- Better asset and inventory management
- Track fleet vehicles
Our RFID solutions will help to automate your natural gas distribution processes to refine your operations thereby growing profit and efficiency. Through RFID technology, organizations can be ensured that equipment never goes missing or become faulty due to poor maintenance unexpectedly, that production never slows or shuts down, and that operations remain on track at all times for all of your customers.
GAO RFID System Solutions: Natural Gas Distribution Services Industry
Natural gas distribution is facilitated through the gathering of gases found in sedimentary basins, transporting this gas via a pipeline to designated processing plants, and then delivered to approximately fifty percent of the national population. It’s recommended to be used to heat space and water, to generate electricity, and for industrial processes. Through the GAO RFID System for Natural Gas Distribution Services, one can ensure that there’s not inefficiency in the distribution chain.
Asset and Inventory Management
The GAO RFID Asset Tracking System will provide your organization with the infrastructure to be able to check inventory levels, validate upcoming maintenance schedules, and to organize further documentation as needed. This acts as a portable database that one can access anywhere, allowing them to work from a mobile location in terms of planning and managing these aspects of their natural gas distribution business. With every item assigned an RFID Tag, every asset is tracked and all consumable inventory is measured within seconds.
Say Goodbye to Hard-to-Read Barcodes
There is no need for line-of-sight when using the GAO RFID Natural Gas Distribution Services System – that is, there is no need for clean, clear optics in order for the software infrastructure to function. RFID technologies enable tag reading from a distance using Handheld RFID Readers, even in harsh environments. Every natural gas meter can now be ingrained with an RFID tag that allows you to monitor its use and performance. This information is then stored in an information database that can be retrieved at a later date.
Speed up Data Entry
The GAO RFID System for Natural Gas Distribution Services proves itself to be indispensable for a variety of reasons including in being able to automate applications to complete data entry tasks that would otherwise be completed by humans. This frees up time, simplifies jobs, and means that an employee no longer has to waste their time on the laborious task recording information. Data acquisition and object identification are easily accomplished.
Track the Fleet
By assigning RFID Windshield Vehicle Tags to every member of your fleet, you can remotely track the location of each vehicle through our web-based management interface. Know how many vehicles are in the lot and how many are on the road; you will have access to time stamped details to know when vehicles departed and returned.
