These days there are apps for just about anything, so it is not surprising that we would find them at the AWRF Product and Information Exhibition (PIE) in Ft. Worth TX this past April. We spoke with Somen of Field ID (www.fieldid.com ) about their app for managing safety compliance. This app combines the power of radio frequency identification (RFID) and mobile devices to make inspections easy and efficient.
Somen explains that performing an inspection on an item such as a chain sling is as simple as scanning the tag with an RFID reader. The reader transmits the data to the app which loads the information on to the screen of the mobile device. It will quickly show the status of that piece of equipment. From there click the start button and begin the inspection process.
So, if you’re tired of using a clipboard and pen check out Field ID. They are brining mobile devices and mobile apps to the lifting, rigging and load securement industry.
Nice job Somen, thanks for being part of our new product and technology video series.
