The CrewCom family of products from Pliant Technologies

CrewCom from Pliant Technologies is a new wireless intercom system designed to offer high user density, large range, and scalability—all while providing excellent voice quality, small but fully-featured professional full-duplex wireless radio packs, multiple simultaneous frequency bands, and other features. Pliant designed a new proprietary network for CrewCom called CrewNet. This network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio, signaling, and controls. CrewNet is capable of operating over standard Cat-5e (or greater) and/or single mode fiber lines. In addition, CrewCom’s highly-intuitive graphical software called CrewWare provides for comprehensive offline configuration, online control, and real-time monitoring of all system components. These new software tools augment CrewCom’s ease-of-use and flexible system scalability. CrewCom wireless products are available in 2.4GHz and 900MHz (900MHz is limited to where this band is legal). Any combination of these frequency ranges may be simultaneously used on the same CrewCom system.

Demo'ing RFID integration in RentalWorks software

The latest version of RentalWorks software from Database Works includes RFID integration, allowing for easy and efficient tracking of equipment. The system is designed to simplify check-in & check-out processes and to help clients get their gear off the truck and into their inventory as quickly as possible, reducing labor costs and equipment loss. RFID integration with RentalWorks is comprised of Quikscan, the QuikRFID Portal and the QuikRFID tablet app. QuikScan turns an Apple iPhone or iPod into a wireless inventory management device, complete with an attached bar-code scanner. Quikscan gives users the ability to scan items for check-in & check-out, manage the quantity of tracked items and designate items for repair. The QuikRFID Portal gives users the ability to scan and check large amounts of equipment accurately and efficiently by simply passing it thru the QuikRFID Portal. The tabulated results, such as quantity counts (and mistakes), are then displayed on the QuikRFID tablet app, available for iOS devices. RentalWorks also now has optional Qlik reporting integration to help companies visualize their equipment flow.
