With various wireless technologies to facilitate such tracking being introduced in the last decade, enterprises have the opportunity leverage on some form of control over the manageability of it resources. As radio frequency (RF) based tracking systems become more advanced, enterprises presently have more options to have an efficient and effective means of tracking their resources.
