Live Scanning Wand
The FE Technologies Live Scanning Wand is a unique shelf management device that lets library staff conduct dynamic library inventory whilst communicating live with the ILS using RFID. Using a handheld RFID wand and tablet, staff can scan library items and update the ILS live to achieve a library stock take without the need for uploading or downloading data. This RFID Library Inventory device can read up to 20,000 items an hour.
The Live Scanning Wand automatically identifies exceptions and also allows the processing of items in the the stacks without the need to take them to the back office to process them. All library exceptions such as library holds (library reservations), claim returns, weed items or lost items are automatically identified whilst the inventory process is done.
Linking instantly to web based ILS workflows, the software will take the user straight to the relevant ILS screen for handling exceptions and altering the status of items where necessary. (This functionality is ILS dependent)
