CoreRFID is helping care homes track new equipment being used in the fight against Coronavirus.
The company is supplying special RFID scanners and tags which enable faster stock checks to ensure kit can be located when it’s needed.
The tags, which are attached to the kit, can be read by scanners from up to two meters away and without needing a line of site to the assets. The items’ locations and description are then automatically uploaded to the user’s database.
RFID access control systems are also being supplied to restrict entry to authorised personnel and so reduce the spread of the virus.
CoreRFID has been fulfilling orders from temporary hospitals for both tracking kit and access control.
Technical director at CoreRFID Munzi Ali says: ‘Our staff are working remotely but everyone readily volunteered to come to the distribution centre to ensure the equipment got to care homes and hospitals as fast as possible.
‘We’ve had unprecedented demand in the past month across the UK from councils, care homes and contractors assembling temporary facilities and while every request is and will be fulfilled quickly, we naturally looking forward to the situation returning to normal.’
