According to the dictionary, to integrate means to combine (one thing) with another so they become a whole. You can infer from that definition that if you fail to integrate you do not have a whole, instead you have... a hole. Bad puns aside, many businesses find it hard to integrate. Whether it be new devices or new personnel, businesses often struggle to create that whole. So how can we integrate devices into our businesses? The Rise of Mobile and Bluetooth Business and business systems are constantly moving to mobile. Taking business to mobile makes it more accessible and convenient.…

Every school started the same for me. We would go shopping the week before school start for new binders, paper, pens, and pencils (with an occasional new backpack!) The school year would start and by October I was asking my friends to lend me their pencils. It seems that the 10-year-old version of myself couldn't keep track of school supplies. But, some things never change. Asset Management can be a hassle and can drill a hole in companies' pockets. Asset Tracking Problems Let's face it, everyone is human and forgets things. However, through this negligence and possible theft, a company…

And now that I am grown up, my problems have only multiplied. Businesses everywhere face multiple problems on a daily basis. One is taking attendance of who and where people are. But, how can we solve the same attendance problem that we face at multiple fronts? An integrated solution is what we need. Attendance Problems in Business One major metropolitan children’s hospital needed a way to track their employees attendance without…

In the land of dinosaurs, there existed the home telephone. The home telephone had a long wire and was normally connected to the wall right outside the kitchen. Not only was it very inconvenient, it became out-dated. The era of wireless is here. But why are you still using big clunky wires to collect DEX Data? Lucky for you, there is a solution. What is DEX Data? DEX(protocol) is a format for collecting audit and event data from vending machines. This protocol was created in the late 1980s and was quickly made a norm in the vending machine industry. DEX records data that help improve the…

This past weekend, I went to my local grocery store to quickly buy breadcrumbs in hopes of filling my stomach with deep-fried shrimp. However, it was SuperBowl weekend. I soon found myself standing in a long line for the under 15 items scanner holding A bag of breadcrumbs. As I was standing there moving a centimeter per minute, I thought to myself how wonderful it would be if there was a scanner that you could just push your cart through and have everything scanned. Using handheld scanners in business can feel the same way. By using id tags and a portal reader, you can increase efficiency…

The cows are taking over the world! Well, not quite. Since around 2006, veterinarians have implanted animals with Low Frequency (LF) RFID technology to store animal profiles. The LF RFID technology for livestock most commonly uses 134 kHz spectrum, and are commonly attached to ears of livestock (cows, sheep, horses, pigs). For pets, 134 kHz and 125 kHz are most commonly used, and tiny glass encased tags are typically injected with a syringe into the pet with no sustained discomfort. Veterinarians, farmers, and scientist use the RFID tags to reference information about the tagged animal. So…

Today, our World is full of "smart" devices. Thousands of devices that can send information between each other. But how can they be so "smart" when it takes me a decade to connect my phone to my wireless speaker? By making everything smart, my phone constantly switches bluetooth connection from one device to the other without me actually wanting to switch. Luckily, there's a smarter way. What are NFC Tags? Near Field Communication Tags, or NFC tags, are small chips that store and transfer information through the use of radio waves. NFC is being used in many shapes and forms. Since they can…

In late 2017, the state of Virginia had a very rare occurrence. When electing the representative for their 94th District, the state held a recount. The recount led to the discovery of a ballot that was weirdly marked. This then resulted in the election ending in a tie and being decided by pulling a name from a hat. When humans manually do a task, the task usually has a greater risk of error and is less time-efficient. Many businesses, healthcare centers, and schools are still using manual attendance systems. This puts these institutes at risk of error, being less efficient, and even…
