RFID for Education: Schools, Colleges & Universities

Give your assets perfect attendance with reliable and versatile Metalcraft asset tracking

Schools, especially college campuses, often have many assets spread across multiple facilities, with high-value technology frequently going back and forth between them. Tracking equipment and supplies is a challenge in any school, and record keeping can easily become a nightmare due to misplaced assets, forcing busy faculty and staff to waste precious time tracking down audio visual devices, laboratory equipment or other supplies. If the equipment can't be found, many schools stretch their already tight budgets to unnecessarily purchase or rent replacements.

Metalcraft specializes in asset tracking, especially in the education world. The benefits of implementing education asset tracking technology with us include:

  • Reducing unnecessary equipment purchases

  • Tracking depreciation of equipment

  • Discouraging theft of school property

  • Maintaining accounting records in accordance with GASB 34 

Tracking educational resources can be done with barcode or RFID technology, helping to maximize their use and keeping school budgets in line and on target, exemplifying ID Made Better®.

A great alternative to metal mount applications where a standoff will not work, Metalcraft’s RFID Server Rack Tag consists of an adhesive label that protects the encapsulated RFID inlay and a non-adhesive, folding tab that offsets the RFID inlay.

A versatile and affordable RFID tag made in the USA to fit a wide array of on-metal and standard applications, the Universal MC RFID Tag is available both preprinted and onsite printable to handle whatever asset tagging application you have.

Perfect for tracking returnable containers such as pallets, crates or totes, Metalcraft’s Standard RFID Tag attaches directly to non-metal assets.

The Universal Micro RFID Tag measuring 1 7/8” x 5/8” is a great solution to your identification projects that require a small RFID tag with great read range. With a tiny footprint and low profile, the Universal Micro RFID Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size! With a smaller footprint and lower profile, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.

The closest thing you will find to a one-size-fits-all” RFID solution! The Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood.
