Identification Technology Specialist LRNi deploys Hybrid Asset Management System
Innovations and breakthroughs that have never been possible in asset management are possible today (2013). On the bleeding edge of technology inventions in this arena is Lost Recovery Network, Inc. (LRNi) headquartered in Vidalia, GA. The groundbreaking work performed by this company is being felt around the world, literally. Working with Global 500 companies, these revolutionary solutions have changed the way people do business and reduced cost and increased productivity dramatically for the companies deploying the technology.
LRNI specializes in the design, manufacturing and implementation of innovative and scalable web-based RFID systems that deliver on the promise and produce greater than anticipated ROIs. This company is an innovative leader in RFID technology products such as LocOn Mobile and LocOn Local systems. Experienced in the integration and real-world implementation of RFID tracking systems, combined with our own state-of-the-art patented antenna technology and Monarch Software, LRNi creates powerful and successful solutions that others have repeatedly failed at.
Remarkably, You Calculate Pay Back Yourself
Clients see pay back fast and the LRNI results are guaranteed. LRNi’s business model is based on positive return on investment for our clients. The company developed an ROII (Return on Initial Investment) calculator that allows clients to provide input on key questions that compute pricing to calculate ROI. This tool greatly reduces the time and effort necessary to calculate ROI.
Some of LRNi clients include logistics (Mohawk Industries, Inc.) and automotive and Industrial Manufactures (Trane-American Standard). LRNi’s Asset Management System communicates the identity of received and shipped goods thus providing accurate inventory levels. Accurate inventory reduces business interruption and drastically reduces the cost associated with expedited parts shipments that keeps plants producing. Tracking and locating units that move through multiple workstations reduces the loss associated with misplaced and duplicated items that eventually become trashed. They also managed min/max levels of product. LRNi’s system sends automatic replenishment request internally or can be in the form of a Purchase Order from your client.
They have a web-based platform that delivers flexibility allowing reduced time associated with integrating client’s back office System. LRNi also has a hosted model enabling new clients to come online quickly and efficiently.
LRNi’s MONARCH™ software is a game changer as it is the users view into the RfIP Framework. Monarch is a web base management console and data-reporting tool that is driven by LRNi’s unique “Asset Location Engine”. They have an Asset Location Engine that was designed and built around “Smart RFID Algorithms” made possible by their patented antenna technology. LRNi antennas bring a smoothing of the received signal 7 to 15 times greater than other antennas in the industry. This effect equals “Smart RFID Algorithms” and requires less data needed to achieve accurate, consistent and location specific data, which pinpoints assets.
LRNi assists senior managers in understanding and arriving at the best solution for custom RFID needs. Their expertise helps business leaders understand and implement the most appropriate solutions that provide the competitive edge required in an environment of improving efficiencies. They use support plans to ensure the most appropriate technologies are leveraged for implementation from cost to longevity. RFID readers are the workhorses in this System. The system beats obsolescence by having the ability to send forward compatible upgrades that are downloaded by each reader that is on the LRNI network and this insures their clients will continually benefit from innovation.
LRNi Solves problems and provided solutions while others in this business are still trying to resolve. (See Ran article)
Dec 21, 2012—The RFID-based Automotive Network (RAN), a three-year, federally funded research project focused on the use of radio frequency identification within Germany’s automotive industry. The participating car manufacturers included BMW, which deployed RFID to monitor containers as they moved between the automaker’s facilities and suppliers along the production chain, and Daimler, which tagged production containers to track them between two countries. Daimler also installed real-time location system (RTLS) hardware and passive EPC tags across one of its factory’s quality-assurance areas. Bosch participated in RAN with a pilot involving a test of RFID on returnable transport items (RTIs) exchanged with one of its parts suppliers, as well as a test with automaker Opel. Together, Müller explains, the pilots showed that it will be possible to employ RFID to track which individual automotive parts end up in which vehicles, from supplier to original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Some steps of the applications have been moved into production, while others remain in the testing phase.
With the RAN project completed, Bosch is now turning its attention to the details of single-product tagging within a production environment, based on the results of its RAN test case. Before individual parts can be tracked throughout production, Müller says, supply chain participants will need to build up their RFID infrastructure and also resolve some technical problems, including radio interference within a metal environment.
