RFID Systems for Self-Storage/Mini Warehouse Services

The leasing of storage and warehouse space is a lucrative business across Canada and the U.S. that has seen strong profit growth in recent years, according to industry analysts. The demand remains solid from both households and businesses as space becomes more and more of a luxury. Storage units include compartments, lockers and even outdoor space. Meanwhile, warehouse facilities consist of large room rentals for safekeeping of commercial belongings.   GAO RFID has extensive experience providing operational support to this multi-faceted enterprise. Whether you’re looking to implement security protocols or monitor your personnel, our company has a solution designed just for you.

Using GAO RFID Systems in the Self-Storage/Mini Warehouse Services Industry

Many of our clients come to GAO RFID looking for ways to streamline their daily operations. We understand that no two organizations are alike, which is why we’re committed to providing customized solutions to each of our clients. Below are our answers to some questions from our storage industry customers. This may be a good starting point to get you thinking about how GAO RFID can meet your organizational needs.

Question: Security is our customer’s top priority. How can we make sure our storage facility is safe and secure for every customer who stores their valuable with us?

Security is also our top priority, making GAO one of the most trusted brands in RFID technology for Access Control and Asset Tracking. We have designed special frameworks that maintain the highest security standards in all areas, including the monitoring of assets and the control of entry points. For example, GAO’s Asset Tracking System is able to monitor facility valuables in real-time and track their whereabouts 24/7. And when storage compartments or warehouse doors are opened, Tamper-proof RFID Tags will transmit signals to strategically placed Readers. Those signals will be logged into a centralized database that can be accessed from company desktops or even remotely. Meanwhile, our RFID Access Control System can expertly monitor all entry/exit points throughout your facility—allowing you to control who gets in and who stays out.

Question: Our warehouse facility is a sprawling complex, making it tough to know where our employees are at all times. How can GAO RFID help us in this regard?

Our RFID Personnel Tracking System is the perfect way to improve visibility throughout your workplace. Monitor your employees’ whereabouts in a way that is unobtrusive and subtle. RFID Tags are assigned to each of your workers. These Tags then transmit signals as each employee walks past RFID Readers placed throughout the facility. Not only will you accurately determine where your workers are—you can also use this system to assess productivity rates and address workflow deficiencies.

Question: With so many customers renting individual storage spaces, we want an automated way to provide access and gain insight on which customers visit us most. Is there a way to do this with RFID?

Our RFID Access Control System can accomplish this requirement. Instead of giving your customers keys or the main gate passcode, provide them with unique RFID Tags that have their information recorded on them. These RFID Cards can be coded to allow entrance into the parking lot, facility, and individual storage units. Each time the RFID Card is used, the event is logged into the database. You can pull reports showing which customer entered what zone and what time; truly having full visibility of your business.

Question: Is it possible to merge several GAO RFID Systems into one comprehensive RFID framework?

Absolutely. The best part of our solutions is that they can be mix-and-matched to fit your unique business needs. All of our products can work as standalone systems, or used in conjunction with others to target a wide variety of areas. Here are just some of the other solutions GAO RFID can offer you:

  • Parking Control: Securely manage the entry and exit of all vehicles at your storage/warehouse facility 24/7 without the need for a human parking attendant
  • Property Management: Control all aspects of your facility with one comprehensive system; For example, manage access to sensitive zones, monitor parking lots and control all energy/lighting resources
