PiiComm Inc., a Wireless Systems Integrator and leader in RFID Asset Management and Field Workforce Mobility Systems, has been selected by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) to provide a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Barcode Asset Tracking solution to track physical assets stored at locations in over 170 Missions worldwide.
PiiComm has introduced an easy and effective Advanced Information Data Capture (AIDC) solution for DFAIT agents who will carry the barcode and RFID device during his/her workday, adding, verifying and modifying the tracked data as appropriate allowing them to upload/download asset data to SAP via the SIGNET worldwide Corporate data network. The solution leverages RFID enabled handheld mobile computers from Motorola Solutions Inc. and customized software developed by PiiComm which has been certified for use on the SIGNET network by DFAIT.
The Department’s intent is to ensure that all appropriate items (capital assets, attractive items) are tracked within the Corporate Finance and Material Management system. The barcode and RFID solution will be standardized for all of DFAIT and will improve accuracy and visibility to those assets.
