Integrated ID Solutions: Time-To-Value Automatic Identification Services for Enhanced Asset Visibili

Amber Richards, Founder & President If there is one question that leaders could answer quickly and with the confidence to make successful decisions it would be “where’s my stuff?” Total Asset Visibility (TAV), the concept of monitoring the movement and location of assets from their initial acquisition through the supply chain, to their final destination is enhancing the logistic practices of the enterprise. TAV is achieved through Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) that collects real-time data about an asset through use of barcodes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), or sensors to monitor and accurately act on the event as it occurs. Lean Manufacturing, Total Quality Management (TQM), and Six Sigma all teach that to achieve a Best Practice, the focus must be on anomalous events. AIT enables users to be alerted when an anomaly occurs, and even why it occurred, so that it can be resolved while normal processes continue.

Helping enterprises with their TAV initiatives is what Integrated ID Solutions (IIDS), a Greenville, SC based company offers with a comprehensive set of professional services proven to reduce risk, enhance effectiveness, and speed the time-to value of AIT-based solutions. The company’s experts with industry-standard certifications and vast practical experience help to drive successful implementations. “We provide subject matter expertise in AIT, Project Management, and Systems Integration throughout the systems development life cycle to incorporate lean practices, technology, and capabilities in accord with existing processes,” says Amber Richards,

As the world of connected business requires faster and more interdependent sources of supply, clients require total situational awareness of their internal and external supply chains as well as interoperability with their business partners and customers. In one such instance, IIDS provided its expertise and business systems analysis to address unique identification, asset management, and enterprise architecture for a client in the Defense industry.

The resulting solution ensures the availability and transparency of assets, equipment, and supplies for operational commanders, regardless of their location, thereby improving readiness in the field of operations. The United States Coast Guard, US Naval Supply Systems Command, and the US Marine Corps are among a few of the public sector agencies that sought IIDS services for their TAV programs. The company also offers its services to commercial organizations requiring visibility, traceability, and accuracy.

“IIDS is unique in that our teams have worked on the client side as people responsible for analyzing and applying Lean Concepts (eliminating expenditure of resources that can’t create value for the end-users) with the enhancement of AIT within their respective companies,” notes Richards.

Going forward, IIDS continues to align its growth plans with its clients’ focus on addressing the demands of international trade, global manufacturing and repair cycles, and investor requirements to provide more accountability and profitability. “We are engaged with our client and business partner ecosystems so we are vigilant and proactive in the solutions we provide,” says Richards.
