Online tracking system helps end users

20 March 2008

The InfoChip is an RFID tag-based online tracking system that helps sling and lifting equipment users by streamlining sling inspections and management.

The RFID tag is inserted into the product during manufacture and is impervious to dirt, water, grease and other contaminants.

The tag stores manufacturing and testing information, allowing distributors and customers to access information about the sling on site with mobile handhelds via a web-based database.

A digital audit trail tracks any transaction and information captured in the field is forwarded to management through maintenance alerts with the system's IC Online manager.

The information is shared between each party in the sling's value chain.

Using mobile handheld technology and RFID chips, the user can better track location changes and field inspections. Lift-It Mfg. is western US distributor where its dealers can also add the InfoChip to hooks, blocks and other gear.
