Governments today need to become more efficient and business-focused, while continuing to provide high-quality effective services – and for some branches, mission-critical services. RFID technology provides a compelling means to help meet these challenges, while improving workflow processes and transforming to more business-oriented operations.

After the 810 polling places of Alameda County, CA close on Election Day, delivering the voting equipment quickly to the county’s vote count facility in Oakland requires an efficient, secure, tightly-run process. Volunteers must collect three critical components including a memory pack holding vote results scanned from paper ballots; a paper index of every person who voted at that polling place; and the PCMCIA card from the touch screen machine.
With RFID, IT assets can be automatically tracked in real time as they enter, reside in and leave the data center. When RFID tags are placed on IT assets, the information on the RFID tags thatare within the read range of a given RFID reader is automatically captured. Human intervention is not required, nor is line of sight, and multiple tags can be read simultaneously.
An RFID solution automates many tasks, eliminating time-consuming paper-based processes that are error-prone and slow the movement of information through your agency. RFID tags and RFID readers can instantly identify and track any high-value asset with minimal human intervention.
