There have been major changes in the hardware RFID arena in the past year – Intermec has been absorbed by Honeywell and Motorola absorbed by Zebra – so lots of changes in products, pricing, and personnel. TechnologySolutions can help your business can find the best hardware and then focus on the best uses of the that hardware. We can help define what the business requirements are, who the best vendors are, and either recommend, or actually purchase and install, the necessary hardware for you. We are a Value Added Reseller with Intermec, Motorola, NordicID, Zebra, and a dozen other major hardware providers. This allows us to provide hardware to you less expensively and with more support than you can get yourself.
Our hardware experience is strongest in the mobile computing area that includes handheld RFID and/or barcode computers with data communications via WiFi, 3G, or hardwired docking station. The strong advantage of these solutions is that you take the computer to where the job is – not taking the job to where the computer is.
Mobile computing also include the use of smartphones and even smartphone/tablets connected to RFID readers to offer a better, faster, cheaper solution over traditional mobile computing. Technology Solutions Ltd. TSL 1128, TSL 1166 and Zebra 8500 sled RFID platforms are several that we can provide solutions for with your smartphone or tablet.
The hardware component also includes output to barcode and/or RFID printers, be they desktop printers or portable printers (similar to those carried by rental car staff). Generally when the data is in the computer we like to leave it there, but there are appropriate times when putting the data in hardcopy form is necessary, and we know how to do that well.
