RW offers simple and effective real-time location tracking for warehouses

Location intelligence helps promote optimal warehouse setup, so that fast-moving items remain in priority areas and slower-moving products remain in other areas.

Location technology doesn’t have to break the bank—or have extensive installation and infrastructure requirements. Start simply with RW.

RW offers simple and effective real-time location tracking for warehouses at a fraction of the cost of many alternatives. It consists of a network of Bluetooth proximity beacons installed in locations where you need to know which equipment, materials, items, or staff are nearby and low-cost iBeacon tags affixed to moveable assets. Using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, the proximity of the tag to the beacon is relayed back to the central access point. Your assets’ location is available for you in real-time.

RW is an active RFID (radio frequency identification) technology as opposed to passive, which means it’s a great way to not only confirm the presence of a tagged item within an area (as passive RFID does) but also tell its location. Active RFID technologies are attractive because of their low cost, high scalability, and long battery life. And because active RFID tags regularly transmit their locations, you’re far more likely to get an accurate reading. Keep in mind, however, that active RFID cannot provide pinpoint accuracy, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you may need to start with a more expensive technology, like ultra wide-band (UWB) real-time location systems.
