RF IDeas Takes Employee Identification and Authorization to a Whole New Level

Manufacturing in the 21st century has become extraordinarily complex as regulatory and compliance pressures increase, inventory discrepancies create havoc, automated processes require greater training and costs continue to rise. The bottom line: when your product goes out the door it must be flawless, profitable, cost effective and compliant. How can manufacturers meet these rising expectations while still maintaining a profitable, seamless and impeccable operation?

RF IDeas’ pcProx® card readers support nearly every proximity and contactless smart card in use worldwide, helping manufacturers improve workflow, reduce errors, secure operations, validate attendance and so much more. With all these features and benefits, secure proximity and contactless technologies have become a necessity for today’s industry and logistics applications.

Here are just a few challenges addressed by RF IDeas card readers:

Multiple employee logins:

Today’s manufacturing employee typically logs in and out of workstations multiple times per day. Each login can take several minutes as incorrect codes are entered, passwords are forgotten or magnetic strips wear out. With a single tap of an RFID-enabled badge, employee logins are straightforward, trouble-free and can save thousands of employee hours per year.

Unauthorized access to equipment:

Getting the job done often requires an interface to operate today’s sophisticated, automated process control systems. Upon login, a RF IDeas reader quickly identifies the employee, validates that he or she is current on training, certification, safety and security measures, and only then unlocks the machine for operation and displays the panel view status.

Securing unattended workstations:

Employees leaving unlocked or unsecured workstations increases the potential for security risks, privacy concerns and unauthorized tampering with equipment. RF IDeas presence detection devices automatically lock the workstation when users physically step away, avoiding annoying time-out settings. When a user returns, the devices detect the user’s presence and unlocks the workstation.

RF IDeas readers take identification and authorization to a whole new level. It begins with the login process; progresses to enabling higher levels of security and accountability; and brings it all together by helping you link employee data throughout the manufacturing process. RF IDeas readers are used in numerous applications and OEM solutions including attendance management, multi-function printers, mobile, physical access, manufacturing, dispensing, kiosks, point-of-sale and computer logon settings. Contact us for more information!
