Verasset is a certified supplier of UHF RFID solutions used for identifying, locating, and authenticating items. We supply, install, and support RFID equipment and tags, and integrate with asset management and data capture software applications to automate the tracking and management of assets.
Our RFID Solutions can be customized, or provided as a turn-key implementation. Verasset has expertise in:
Verasset is a certified reseller of RFID hardware. We install fixed RFID hardware and train customers on the use of the equipment. RFID Equipment available from Verasset includes:
An RFID site survey is a physical survey of the premises where the use of RFID equipment is planned to be implemented. A survey identifies optimal locations for the physical installation of RFID readers and antennae.
When considering the use of RFID equipment, it can be difficult to predict the propagation of radio waves while detecting the presence of interfering signals without conducting a site survey. Regardless of the antennae technology, radio waves do not travel the same distance in all directions. Walls, doors, infrastructure (metal, shafts, etc.), people, and other obstacles offer varying degrees of attenuation, which cause the radio frequency (RF) radiation pattern to be irregular and somewhat unpredictable.
As a result, an RFID site survey should be performed to understand fully the behavior of radio waves within a facility. The goal of an RFID site survey is to gather enough information and data to determine the number and placement of RFID portals (readers and antennae) that will provide the coverage required, as well as to identify any necessary power and network connectivity points.
During the site survey, decisions can be made regarding mounting of fixed readers as well as optimum placement of antennae at controlled capture points. The need and complexity of an RFID site survey will vary depending on the size of the facility and the work that is to be accomplished. Afterwards, actual equipment is tested under similar conditions, and then finally a report is generated and submitted for approval prior to order and implementation stages.
Verasset installs fixed RFID readers and antenna. We have experience in very large installations and have received awards from industry leading manufacturers, including Impinj 2011 Largest Deployment of the Year.
Past Installation Highlights Include:
University Campus with 40 Buildings

Verasset offers an extensive line of RFID tags and labels that can withstand almost any environment, as well as any attachment process. We provide the proper advice when choosing RFID tags suited to your unique requirements including:
We also provide guidance with methods of affixing RFID tags to objects. Options include:
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the most automated and accurate means of tracking assets and consumable inventory available today. The technology consists of two basic components- a tag that is applied to property that is being tracked, and a reader that is used to detect the tag when it is within range.
Stationary or Fixed Readers are strategically mounted throughout a facility and will detect RFID tags when they come within range. This is an automated means to track the movement of tagged assets throughout a facility.
When stationary readers are configured with a smart backend system, the benefits are limitless as you can alert personnel when items are improperly removed in real time, make use of underutilized equipment, locate assets when they are needed, etc.
A Portable or Mobile Reader is built into a mobile computer and can be used anywhere. Mobile readers are generally used to conduct physical inventory. Taking inventory using RFID technology saves on time and manpower as tag detection is automated, many tags can be read at once, and it does not require direct line of sight.
RFID Tags are made up of an electronic chip and an antenna. The chip receives a signal from a reader using its antenna, sends its unique ID back to the reader, which in turn communicates with some intelligent software and makes decisions based on predefined conditions.
Proper RFID tag selection and application plays an important role in RFID implementation. There are countless environmental conditions that can impact tag performance and readability. Verasset has extensive experience in tag selection and application as we consider all environmental conditions they will be subjected to, duplicate these conditions, and test each tags performance in them.
