TagMaster Conducts Contractor Audits for Logistical Command Center Through New Construction Site Installation

TagMaster RFID Readers exceed tracking and access needs for demanding construction site by verifying and recording personnel credentials, managing accounts payable, and doing so with 100% accuracy and reliability.


TACOMA, WA | July 30th, 2015 - TagMaster North America's RFID system was selected to help management conduct contractor audits in real time for a demanding construction site in West Virginia. The company is a premier general contractor and has provided their recent construction site with a turnkey solution by installing TagMaster's LR-3 readers and Work FLO - Materials Management software. TagMaster's long-range Microwave readers and embedded software offered site supervisors accurate vendor auditing transparency and efficiency in a simplified, all-encompassing system.

Site managers needed to field numerous subcontractors and vendors accessing the site with essential materials. The company had previously deployed another RFID system that was functionally limited and unable to perform consistently and accurately, which disrupted daily operations and hindered vendor management and material control.

TagMaster's LR-3 readers, coupled with the MarkTag MeM, provided 100% tag read accuracy during all hours of operation. ACTS provided an embedded access control solution with real-time updates and credential auditing. As this information is accessible through their network via web interface and any authorized connected device, no additional software or hardware was required.

Each vendor/subcontractor was issued a tag with a unique 8-digit ID code, facilitating verifiable audit tracking for all transports to the site. Vendors/subcontractors can submit their charges for services and tag information is verified through the database, eliminating errors in billing and payables.

Management saw an immediate return on the investment and, as the system is redeployable, they now have accurate logistical control and awareness for future projects as well.
