A HUB certified minority business headquartered in Austin, Texas, Radiant RFID was founded in 2004 at a time when passive and active RFID were used mainly to track packages and pallets in corporate supply chains. Although RFID solutions have been deployed since the 1970s, the usages of this technology are recently expanding, and Radiant is one of the driving forces behind this advancement. At our research and development facility, we use passive RFID technology to implement cutting-edge solutions that automate asset tracking and management in a wide variety of situations.
At Radiant RFID, we keep track of our clients’ most valuable and dynamic assets. For educational facilities or large events, this may be people. For large corporations, law enforcement, educational institutions, and government organizations, they are often complex technology systems ranging from data centers to specialty equipment. In general, our specialties include asset tracking, evacuation and emergency management, employee mustering and evacuation, and RFID wristbands and tags.
As one of the fastest growing RFID companies in the industry, more organizations trust Radiant RFID with what matters most. Radiant’s high performance technology solutions, coupled with world-class, U.S.-based service and support, keep tabs on your assets so you can focus on everything else.
