Energy & Utilities

RFID technology can help utility companies deliver high-quality service, monitor costs, and increase efficiency.

Optimize Delivery Utilities with RFID

Utility providers are under constant pressure to deliver reliable services of essential utilities. RFID technology streamlines workflows, increases cost monitoring, ensures quality work is done and increases efficiency. With RFID, it becomes easier to track assets, tools, personnel, and inventory in order to ensure that your field workers have all that they need to do their job.

RFID solutions provide companies with the visibility, flexibility, and real-time information they need to manage equipment and personnel effectively.

  • Improve production uptime and respond quickly to failures and outages.
  • Improve equipment maintenance with timely inspections and informed repair decisions.
  • Increase asset utilization and reduce inventory stock levels.
  • Improve worker safety by quickly locating and responding to ‘man down’ situations.

RFID success starts with clearly identifying the specific business problem you want to address. This information helps determine the most cost-effective components and deployment path for meeting your needs.

3 Ways RFID & RTLS Solutions Can Improve Utilities

Utilities Automation RFID

1. Smarter Asset Management:

Automated tracking and location technology provide visibility for every important tool or asset across your enterprise. Knowing where to find valuable tools, cables, wires, machinery, and equipment or how to find and recall hidden resources dramatically reduces the downtime spent looking for missing or misplaced assets.

2. Improved Customer Service:

A location intelligence platform provides you with information to determine which customers may be affected by a natural hazard or equipment failure, allowing service providers time to communicate with their customers in advance. Location intelligence can also help providers dynamically and responsively route technicians in the field to important or emergency service requests, while also making sure they have the appropriate tools for the task at hand.

3. Better Analytics & Reporting:

Antennas, tags, and beacons can collect and centrally store real-time data for equipment, vehicles, tools, inventory, and all types of assets across every location. A location engine can then take this data and develop prescriptive analytics and actionable insights for decision-makers. Access to asset data allows public utility organizations to enhance their operations and ultimately work towards providing the best value and cost to their market.

What Goes Into An RFID System

Our RFID solutions use the right mix of tags, readers, software, and services to tackle your specific challenges.

  • Tags & Supplies

    Tags, labels, and inlays are the fundamental building block of any RFID solution. Between passive or active, a range of frequencies, label specsand environmental conditions there is a lot to evaluate when finding the right label.

  • Handheld Readers

    Gun-style, rugged handheld readers and good for read-intensive tasks in the warehouse and other industrial environments where a large quantity of tag data needs to be collected in a timeefficient manner.

  • Antennas

    Antennas provide the vital link between the fixed reader and tag, serving as the conduit that moves data back and forth. 

  • RFID Portals in Warehouse
    Fixed Readers & Portals

    With fixed RFID readers and checkpoints, you can quickly and accurately track large volumes of RFID-tagged cases, pallets, and items. They are ideal for use in high-density tag environments, high throughput applications, and on RF-challenging materials.

  • Printers & Encoders

    RFID printers give you the ability to identify, track, manage, and optimize, assets and inventory. Encoding (or printing) on RFID tags is the first step to having a successful RFID system.

  • RFID Software

    RMS Omega has partnerships with a variety of software vendors, allowing us to find the right inventory control or check-in/ check-out software for your application. RFID software provides a central database for monitoring inventory levels, location, and movement.

A Complete Solution From Design To Support

Every facility and business process has its own unique challenges. That is why RMS Omega takes a hands-on approach in managing RFID and RTLS implementations. Our process starts with understanding your unique challenges, needs, and goals – helping us create a solution that delivers positive outcomes for your business. Ultimately, we want to ensure that you receive a technology solution that exceeds your expectations and delivers a positive ROI. Our six-step process ensures just that.

Discovery & Design

Our trained systems & sales engineers will evaluate your work environment to determine the best plan of action for strategic technology implementation to solve challenges and achieve both short and long-term goals.

Project Management

RMS Omega has an internal team of solutions experts to oversee the successful design and implementation of complex and technical projects. We will monitor the project from the start and make sure everything is completed within an established timeline.

Statement of Work

The statement of work is a document that will map out our plan for implementation. This includes both hardware and software along with a description of processes after the system is complete. You will also receive a timeline for each phase of the project.


During deployment, we collaborate with your team to bring the proposed plan to fruition. Deploying each strategy often includes network design and implementation, staging and configuration of hardware, data integration, and staff training. Each of these necessary steps will ensure your team can hit the ground running once your system is live.

Analysis & Optimization

In an Analysis and Optimization, or A&O, we want to ensure your system is functioning the way it was intended. This is a process designed to optimize and enhance the performance of wireless coverage or system functionality throughout your facility and processes. An A&O is performed to identify and correct poor signals or reads along with incorrectly installed or underperforming hardware.

On-going Support

We are here to be an extension of your team, one point of contact for all of your data collection and RFID technology solution needs. To assist your organization in reaching new levels of productivity, you need a true partner, not just a vendor. That’s why we believe our support services are essential.
