Pro-Cloud Ambulance digitally transforms your daily processes and revolutionizes how you manage your assets. This solution comes hand in hand with a range of labelling and tagging options to suit your specific requirements. Our labelling options include RFID tags, QR labels, NFC tags, and GS1 barcoding.
Here’s the rundown on each option and how they work in conjunction with the Pro-Cloud system – the ultimate ambulance tracking software solution can transform your service.
RFID (or Radio Frequency Identification Technology) is when high-frequency wireless non-contact radio frequency waves are used to identify tagged objects. Tagging items with RFID tags allows users to automatically and uniquely identify and track assets. It automates data collection and reduces human interaction, supporting tag readings without having to scan item-by-item. RFID readers can read multiple RFID tags simultaneously increasing efficiency and saving time compared to traditional methods. RFID is constantly improving and becoming more cost-effective, making it one of the best options to modernise your operations. Not to mention, hardware like the RFD40 UHF RFID Sled that is attached to a mobile device boasts up to 1300 tag reads in a second! If you want to streamline your processes and ensure everything is accounted for as quickly as possible, then RFID tagging is the best choice when it comes to configuring your ambulance tracking software solution.
At CSS, we use RFID with our Ready to Go app, which has been specifically created for the Emergency Services sector, allowing you to monitor RFID tagged items contained within your fleet of vehicles. The system notifies you if all equipment is onboard and ready to go, if items are missing or if unexpected items are located on the vehicle. It also allows you to report on faulty equipment, reducing the loss of equipment and providing full visibility over your inventory.
QR (Quick Response) codes are probably the most common tagging option as they are easy to make, easy to identify, and can vary in size depending on how they need to be used. Because of their versatility, they are used for both asset items and storage locations and are arguably the most user-friendly since every smartphone has the ability to scan QR codes.
With Pro-Cloud Ambulance, QR codes can be used throughout warehouses and hubs to provide workers with a quick and efficient way of managing their warehouse facility and inventory. On top of this you can easily configure a new scanner in your ambulance tracking software by using Pro-Cloud’s Scanner QR Setup feature. QR labelling provides accessibility above all else while also providing a user-friendly mobile working solution.
Another option is to use your ambulance tracking software with NFC (Near-Field Communication) tags. The signals from NFC tags are sent in one-way communication – they’re commonly used in contactless cards and card readers for security. With this in mind, this also makes them one of the most secure labelling options.
These are the most durable tags available which makes them ideal for ambulance services since they can withstand a lot of damage and wear and tear. This also makes them perfect for monitoring equipment that goes through traumatic experiences every day.
We also offer GS1 and EAN – 128 barcoding as a labelling solution. This is essentially a standalone barcode similar to the ones you find in a retail environment, and it works by assigning a unique number to each labelled asset. We offer this alongside all our other packages to ensure you can cover all your bases and find the complete ambulance tracking solution package that best suits the needs of your ambulance service.
