RFID has a strong history of use with fixed asset inventories. Items targeted for tracking with RFID typically have either a high dollar value and/or a strategic value. In these cases, the investment of RFID tagging and tracking is very cost effective.
Now, the RFID option is available for use with Workday® Business Assets.
RFID, mobilePLUS & Workday®
Last week, we talked about leveraging RFID technology with PeopleSoft. In that article, we provided some of the unique history and value that RFID brings – especially when applied in a closed and repetitive environment like a fixed asset physical inventory. RFID also offers value to other non-accounting related tasks such as with compliance reporting or regulatory surveys and audits.
Using our mobilePLUS for Workday® mobile inventory application, adding RFID is a simple change. In fact, adding this capability is just a change in a configuration switch – not any change to the product code.
With mobilePLUS for Workday®, we manage all requirements for using RFID at the solution edge. That focus surrounds the mobile device and type of item tagging. By focusing at the edge, this means that no additional changes are required in your backend Workday® environment when you’re ready for RFID.
It’s All in the Configuration
Since RFID is a configuration setting within mobilePLUS, you’ll be able to put it into production use with your Workday® system in a few days – not weeks or months. Even if you don’t want to start conducting automated inventories with RFID, it is easy to change your configuration settings when you do want it and even focus it to specific areas if preferred. mobilePLUS also includes optionss that assist in the re-labeling from barcode to RFID tags.
So whether you wish to begin with RFID or migrate specific inventories over to it later, mobilePLUS provides you with a mobile inventory solution for your Workday® Business Assets. It’s a complete one-stop option for all of the software, training and support you will need to successfully implement and deploy with confidence and no risk.
Are you headed to Workday® Rising? Our Workday® development and distribution partner, Ibza Consulting ,will be at Workday® Rising in Orlando next week. They are available to provide you with additional information on how mobilePLUS works with Workday®- and how it may work for you. Connect with Ross Garrett to set up a one-on-one discussion at the conference.
We’re excited to offer Workday® customers both a mobile inventory solution – and an RFID option today that is easy to install, use and grow.
