RFID in Energy & Utilities
Improve efficiencies, reduce costs and enhance safety.
Automated end-to-end visibility is needed to streamline everyday tracking of materials, equipment and personnel. Our RFID and sensor technology solutions can help you maximize uptime and better protect your employees.
Strategic Systems’ RFID solutions provide the visibility you need to manage your equipment and personnel effectively.
Increase productivity and spend less time looking for equipment.
Improve production uptime and respond quickly to failures and outages.
Improve equipment maintenance with timely inspections and informed repair decisions.
Increase asset utilization and reduce inventory stock levels.
Improve worker safety by quickly locating and responding to ‘man down’ situations.
Meet compliance requirements to ensure a safe workplace.
RFID success starts with clearly identifying the specific business problem you want to address. This will help determine the most cost-effective components and deployment path for meeting your needs – including whether or not RFID is even the best fit for your project.
RFID’s bulk data capture capabilities and line-of-sight independence are used in a variety of applications to deliver multiple benefits with little or no human effort:
- Asset Managment
- Inventory Control
- Tool Tracking
- Access Control
- Employee Training Tracking
- Hazardous Materials Management
- Equipment Maintenance Management
- Employee Location Tracking / Worker Safety
- Regulatory Compliance
Our RFID tracking solutions are built using technologies designed to meet the specific needs of the oil and gas industry's business and technical requirements.
We also have developed custom systems for numerous energy and utilities applications based on our StrategicRFID™ platform. This scalable RFID tracking solution enables us to quickly to meet your particular needs.
StrategicRFID™ can be deployed as a point solution or leveraged as an RFID infrastructure, providing a platform to enable your entire enterprise to benefit from RFID tracking. With this strategic approach, we can help you determine which applications will deliver the most short-term value and successfully implement them. This approach allows you to start small, tracking specific items such as spare parts, oil pipe and casings or people.
From the beginning, you will have a clear idea of what the overall RFID infrastructure will look like. Should you choose to expand, each new application can utilize the existing infrastructure, providing flexibility for potential use cases throughout your enterprise.
With more than 15 years of experience in automatic data collection and RFID, we can help you determine:
- Which technologies can provide the greatest short-term benefits to your energy and utilities operations right now? Which may do so in the future?
- Which applications can deliver the most value to your operations?
- Which applications allow you to leverage an investment in an RFID tracking system, both today and in the future?
- Where should you begin?
