Atlas provides companies with consulting and implementation of RFID systems using radio waves to automatically identify and track objects. These systems are similar to that of barcodes, only much more sophisticated. Significantly greater amounts of data can be obtained in a fraction of the time required by a simple bar-coding system. RFID can aid not only in identifying an item, but also in locating and reporting the condition of the item. This capability has proven to be extremely beneficial to improve processes and workflow thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs. While these systems are increasing in popularity, Atlas is currently the only Alabama-based company to offer these comprehensive services.
Atlas RFID Solutions provides consulting services to its customers regarding how to leverage RFID to improve processes and workflow thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs. In addition, Atlas provides full-scale integration services to include system design, architecture, installation, integration, training, and support for managing of this emerging technology.
