Customer assets are affixed with passive RFID transmitter tags, which are actively monitored within the customer assigned space. Should the asset move outside the customer assigned space, the ITAM solution will alert the customer and local facility engineers to the asset movement for immediate investigation. This offers protection from unauthorized movement, loss of capital investment, and provides protection of investment.
