The U.S. Department of State has announced that it will tag 10,000 mission critical IT assets using ODIN’s RFID turn-key IT asset tracking solution. The DoS has chosen the UHF Gen 2 passive RFID tracking system to save money, increase security, and reduce administrative burden.
According to ODIN, the State Department’s agency-wide adoption of RFID is part of a growing trend within the U.S. government, as seen in the Department of Defense and other Federal agencies.
The Department of State was long overdue for an asset tracking upgrade, according to Kirk Ingvoldstad. “After using bar codes and thousands of labor hours to track assets for the past 20 years, it is well past time for a new technology. Passive RFID from ODIN was the right choice for a higher level of security and cost savings.”
