Data Center Asset Tracking & Management Software

Custom RFID data center inventory management with a rapid national roll out.

Why Data Centers Need RFID Asset Management Software

As data centers continue to grow in size, complexity, and importance, ensuring the optimal utilization and tracking of assets within these critical facilities has become a top priority. In this digital age, Data Center Asset Management (DCAM) plays a pivotal role in safeguarding an organization’s investments, enhancing operational efficiency, and ensuring data center compliance. Among the arsenal of tools available for DCAM, RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) technology has emerged as a game-changer. This post explores why data centers need RFID Asset Management Software to stay ahead of the curve and maximize their operational potential.

Data Center Inventory: The Challenge That Helped Create Our Software

vXchnge, a national colocation provider with data centers across the US, needed to know the location and status of their customers’ servers in real time. They were looking for real-time data center asset tracking and asset inventory management in all their data centers nationwide.

Providing real-time inventory status and asset tracking were additional services vXchnge’s customers had requested and would be a key differentiator for vXchnge among its competitors. But more than that, these services are necessary today for security and compliance purposes.

In addition to solving for an almost simultaneous national rollout, vXchnge also needed this solution to be deployed at a price point per unit or location that worked for their pricing structure and was in line with their competitive landscape and customers’ expectations.
