Die Zukunft für den Serviceaußendienst
Kevin Ashton, Technologieexperte aus Großbritannien, begründete am Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) das Auto-ID Lab, in dem Pionierarbeit auf dem Gebiet der RadioFrequency Identification (RFID) und anderen Sensoren geleistet wurde.
Im Zuge seiner Tätigkeit prägte Ashton im Jahr 1999 erstmals den Begriff des „Internet of Things”, kurz IoT, um die Vernetzung alltäglicher Gegenstände und Geräte sowie deren Übermittlung von Daten und Informationen zu beschreiben. Kevin Ashton gilt deshalb heute als „Vater” des IoT-Konzepts. Ende des Jahres 2015 war Kevin Ashton als Referent auf einem europäischen Kongress zum Thema Kundenservice geladen. Seine These: Das Servicemanagement im Außendienst sei die erste Branche, die mit dem Internet of Things eine grundlegende Transformation durchlaufe.
Factory Direct Fencing, Austraila’s largest family-owned manufacturer and distributor of fencing products, deploys Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management to handle multi-warehouse management, radio frequency scanning and component manufacturing functionality. Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management not only streamlines its processes and reduces duplication of data entry, it also ensures more reliable reporting and automates its key business processes.
Near-perfect inventory visibility is critical to transforming the customer experience and competing in the retail revolution. Yet inventory accuracy across retail sectors hovers at around 60%. That shortfall causes retailers to lose out on potential sales and puts customer loyalty at risk.How do retailers address this issue? RFID—or radio frequency identification—is 10 times more efficient at cycle counting and can increase inventory accuracy across the supply chain by up to 99.5%, enabling retailers to truly compete in the highly competitive omnichannel world. Launch a successful RFID technology pilot program in your retail operation with our free How-to Guide: Five Steps to Piloting RFID for Unprecedented Inventory Visibility. This guide takes you from Step 1 (a KPI checklist) to Step 5 (execution and monitoring), so you can launch a pilot program and effectively measure its ROI before moving to full deployment.

Kevin Ashton founded the Auto-ID Center at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and
has done pioneering work in radio-frequency
identification and sensor technology.
Ashton is known for coining the term “the
Internet of Things” to describe a system where
the Internet is connected to the physical world
via ubiquitous sensors. In 2015, he spoke at a
European customer service conference and
noted that field service management is the
first industry being transformed by IoT.
Some people in the industry have noted that
the entire IoT concept came from trying to
solve field service problems in 1999. IoT’s
origin story lies in field service management.
Clearly, field service management and IoT are
deeply intertwined. But how are the changes
being implemented? And how can you
benefit from them?
Unique serial numbers must now be applied to individual bottles of drugs and the cases that carry them in California, due to new tracking requirements. Read this white paper to learn how the IBM Serialization Pilot Kit with TAGSYS RFID is helping companies achieve compliance in less than a year.
Wireless technology surrounds us — in the workplace, at home, and many places in between. Mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless computer accessories, and cordless phones all use radio transmissions for wireless communication. Even devices not used for communication, such as microwave ovens and lighting systems, emit radio frequency energy that can impact wireless devices. In this crowded radio environment, two technologies have emerged as the standard for wireless voice communication in UC and enterprise applications.
This white paper addresses business and technical decision-makers for ambitious companies in which product distribution and transportation play key roles in daily operations and profitability. It describes how the comprehensive, integrated management solution represented by Supply Chain Execution for Microsoft Dynamics AX can help build an integrated logistics solution.
The CPG manufacturing industry is large and thriving; however, margins are slim and competition is furious. There are hundreds of product categories, and to compete, firms must constantly innovate. How can the small-to-medium CPG manufacturer survive in the face of the same external pressures and fewer resources?
This paper introduces various supply chain concepts and explains their importance. It describes initiatives being undertaken by the largest retailers and reviews what small and mid-size firms need to do to compete.

In the coming months, RF Code will launch the first of its planned new software tools, which the company says will enable users to add data relating to the physical datacenter to any number of other applications. Click here to get a preview.
In this free white paper, learn how it's now possible for wireless local area networks (WLANs) to deliver predictable throughput, reject interference, and generally behave just like Ethernet. Discover how beamforming, a specialized method of antenna-based RF transmission, renders inconsistent performance stable; rejects performance-impeding interference; supports reliability-sensitive applications like real-time voice and high-definition video; and eliminates packet loss, delays, and jitter.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.
This paper includes a comparison between using RFID and barcoding for asset management as well as real-life examples of how RFID technology is being used by enterprising organizations today to gain significant time savings and enable better asset and maintenance management.
While actual RF design is quite difficult, understanding basic RF concepts is amazingly straightforward. For those of you delving into the world of RF for the first time, when you finish this article, you will have a clearer understanding of how signals are transmitted and received in an RF environment.
