As an early adopter of RFID technology, AB&R has the scraped knees and elbows from almost 40 years of on-site experience in industries such as manufacturing, transportation & logistics, and distribution centers. We want you to learn from our mistakes and see the value of solutions that transform businesses with the ability to identify, track, and manage assets and inventory. Improvements in productivity and operations realized across your entire supply chain.

Season 1

The ZC10L and AB&R®’s RFID enhancement and its impact on connecting the supply chain.

Episode 1

In this episode, Ted Morgan, Vice President of Strategic Development for AB&R, discusses a breakthrough in event admissions and attendee tracking. Ted talks about AB&R’s collaboration with Zebra to add radio frequency identification (RFID) capabilities to Zebra’s large-format ID card printer. By printing RFID-enabled ID cards, event organizers and companies can verify attendee or employee identities, control access to restricted areas, and even track the movement of people for greater security and analytical insights.

RFID 101: A primer on Radio-Frequency Identification

Episode 2

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is rapidly gaining ground as a crucial technology that automatically and precisely locates and tracks assets, inventory, processes, and people as they move through the supply chain. In this episode, AB&R principal solution architect, Mark Steger, provides a complete introduction to RFID, how it works, how it enables real-time tracking and vastly improves efficiency in the supply chain, and how RFID is up to 10 times cheaper than using standard barcodes.

Important Considerations for Operating System Migrations

Episode 3

In this talk of the Connected Supply Chain, operating systems are the focal point. As a result of the majority of traditional Windows Mobile platforms having grown obsolete, there is considerable buzz in the tech world about the need for the migration of older generation technologies to newer operating systems and platforms. Mark Steger, Principal Solution Architect for AB&R®, lays out the details of what to expect, some strategies for handling operating system migration (as well as data migration), and the overall scope for the future of Windows Mobile, which has an “end-of-life” date set for the year 2020.
