PRLog (Press Release) - Jun. 5, 2014 - EDMONTON, Canada -- Atlas RFID Solutions, the world leader in comprehensive Auto-ID solutions for construction site material control (http://www.atlasrfid.com), today announced it will participate in the Supply Chain Management Association’s National Conference as a subject matter expert on RFID and automation for industrial construction jobsites. Jon Chesser, Vice President and Canada Regional Manager for Atlas, will be part of the presentation “Proactive Integration of RFID into Your Material Management Strategy” along with John Walker of Bantrel Management Services and Landon White of Ernst + Young Advisory Services on Thursday, June 12 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.
In addition to the benefits of locating and tracking materials, commonly referenced as advantages of using RFID technology, Jon will highlight the importance of automated material control in the industrial construction supply chain.
“RFID technology alone cannot solve material control issues,” said Mr. Chesser. “If suppliers, contractors, EPC firms and owners could have access to the same – accurate – information about their materials and make better, more informed decisions based on that data, then we would see the true value of this kind of technology across the supply network.”
Automating processes throughout the supply chain provides key stakeholders with updates on the progress of work that has been completed, supports decisions for scheduling future work and reduces man hours wasted on inefficient, labor intensive manual processes.
