Serialio.com Teams Up with Gilbane to Implement a RFID Solution for Secure Work-site Access

In January 2015, real estate development company, Gilbane, Inc., partnered with solutions provider Serialio.com, to deploy an RFID Solution at the new Gilbane one million square foot building site. The solution was designed to oversee the access of Gilbane’s subcontracted workers into and out of the facility, while simultaneously tracking work hours for payroll management.

In January 2015, real estate development company, Gilbane, Inc., partnered with solutions provider Serialio.com, to deploy an RFID Solution at the new Gilbane one million square foot building site. The solution was designed to oversee the access of Gilbane’s subcontracted workers into and out of the facility, while simultaneously tracking work hours for payroll management.

 

The attendance management solution utilized the Serialio idChamp Bluetooth NFC-HF Reader, which was affixed to gate access points at the construction’s entry and exit.  An iPad tablet, connected via Bluetooth to the reader, was also stationed at these access points. Each construction site worker was assigned an HF 13.56MHz RFID identification badge, which they scanned upon arrival and departure. The idChamp Reader transmitted the badge scan to the iPad via Bluetooth, which automatically pushed the logs to Cloud-In-Hand® Mobile Cloud.

 

Cloud-In-Hand® Mobile Cloud, a database management system, was used for this project to track and record the worker’s badge scans being captured at the two entry points.  Cloud-In-Hand®Mobile Cloud features hosted applications developed by Serialio.com, and allows users the ability to access, edit, and maintain their database(s) via any internet browser.

 

This solution deftly solved many of the problems construction site operators face when managing subcontract workers.  At any given time the site is populated with a mix of personnel, many of whom are not direct hires. A large number of contract employees and constant fluctuation in onsite personnel adds a level of complexity difficult for the site operators to manage independently.  By automating the system, the site operator is able to quickly access the locations, hours, and other critical information, such as which employees on site are certificated in OSHA, first-aid, or other required training.
