Online PR News – 03-August-2010 – – Pioneering on UHF technology, EssenRFID implemented the Construction Worker tracking solution at one of Unity's construction sites. The solution encompasses a RFID portal supported with a camera which shall capture worker data in real-time & associate worker information with Essen's RFID tag PersonnaTM. This real-time data association shall help streamline employee identification process at remote construction sites thereby eliminating any potential duplication of worker data, eliminating "ghost workers" & misuse of substituting low skilled workers for highly skilled workers thereby drawing a higher payment by the site supervisor.

EssenRFID's Visitor Management System
At Unity's Mumbai Headquarters, a Visitor Management System was introduced & deployed successfully by EssenRFID. Whenever a business meeting is being scheduled at Unity's headquarters involving people coming in from other locations, the business host (e.g. General Manager) logs onto EssenRFID's application namely the Visitor Management System & enters all the relevant information such as name of the visitor, scheduled time of visit, purpose of visit, conference room number & immediately the information is passed on to the security personnel via the back end server.The security personnel would have kept the visitor/ guest cards (RFID PersonnaTM tags) ready well in advance. When the business visitor arrives at the front office desk, the security personnel hands over the PersonnaTM RFID tag to the visitor. When the business visitor walks through the RFID portal of the office premise carrying the PersonnaTM tags, EssenRFID's integrated Reader/Antenna, XtennaTM picks up the signal & in real-time passes information to the host (General Manager) informing him about the arrival of the guest & also about the expected time of arrival of the business guests from the entrance to the conference room located in an adjacent building premise. The information can also be sent via a SMS to the host's PDA/ Mobile should he be not available at his desk at that particular time. This customized solution helps in pre-empting the business host (General Manager) about the arrival of business visitor & notifies him with the relevant information well in advance.
