RF Technologies expands product offering with RTLS
BROOKFIELD, Wis., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — RF Technologies(®), a leading provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) safety and security solutions, announced today a realignment of its product offerings to better serve customers in the healthcare, education and hospitality markets.
RF Technologies, which is already the parent brand to Code Alert(®), Safe Place(®), and Sensatec(®), will add two solutions from its sister company, PinPoint Technologies. The repositioning of PinPoint Technologies moves its product lines, the Help Alert(®) Staff Duress Solution and ExacTrack(®) Asset Management Solution, back under the RF Technologies family of brands.
“This new brand architecture will better align us to serve our customers so we can provide a more comprehensive solution for their safety and security needs,” said Sean Daugherty, senior vice president and general manager for RF Technologies.
Help Alert uses mobile panic alarms, or pendants, as a proactive, cost-effective solution to protect staff, patients, teachers, students and guests. Mobile pendants broadcast a silent alarm, so staff can be located even if they’re on the move, unlike fixed panic buttons or repeater-based systems.
“There is tremendous opportunity to serve additional customers looking for the cost-effective, proactive solutions that Help Alert offers,” Daugherty said. “In addition to offering safety and security solutions for the senior living and hospital markets, RF Technologies is now a valuable partner in the nationwide effort to help reduce the risk of violence and bullying in schools, and provide staff a discreet solution as part of an overall school safety plan. In hospitality and healthcare settings, it’s just as important that staff can silently call for help when it’s needed most. Help Alert makes that simple.”
With ExacTrack, small tags are attached to valuable mobile assets, such as medical equipment or shared resources. Each tag is assigned a unique code, so system users can easily locate assets and review their status, helping save time and increase productivity.
Help Alert and ExacTrack are powered by PinPoint(®) real-time locationing systems (RTLS) technology to provide location accuracy within an existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, which means no wires, power cables, or new construction work is needed for their installation. Both solutions can also be configured on the same platform. Free mobile apps are available in the Apple(®) App Store(SM) to track alerts from an iPhone(®), iPad(®), and iPod touch(®).
