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®.

The RFID Server Rack Tag is a great alternative to metal mount options or applications where a standoff will not work.

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.

Metalcraft's RFID Standard Single Side RFID Labels are ideal for asset tracking applications on non-metal surfaces that require attachment directly to the asset.

Measuring 1 7/8" x 5/8", the Universal Micro RFID Tag 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.

With a smaller footprint and lower profile than the original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits in smaller places where other tags may be too large.

This revolutionary product line features surface-independent tags with a patented inlay designed to obtain excellent read range regardless of the surface - metal, plastic, even wood.
