The easiest type of RFID asset tracking solution to implement is a solution that leverages a handheld RFID reader to automate the process of inventorying assets.  These types of RFID solutions typically require far less consulting, engineering, installation and tuning than implementations that involve fixed RFID readers. 

The main steps involved in implementing a handheld RFID reader solution are:

1. Select RFID asset tracking software - unless you have internal software developers with RFID experience and plenty of time, it is typically more cost effective to purchase commercially available RFID asset tracking software solution such as RFTrack.

2. Select a handheld RFID reader - you definitely want to do this prior to or as part of the process of evaluating tags, because tag read ranges will vary from between vendors and models.  If you have already selected a software vendor, you will want to make sure you select a handheld that is supported by the software.

3. Evaluate RFID tags - there is no standard RFID asset tag, so you need to make sure you evaluate appropriate RFID tags that are designed to be used on the types of assets you plan to tag.  Select a vendor that will help you evaluate tags from multiple leading vendors to make sure you evaluate and select the best tags available.

4. Tag the assets - make sure you accurately keep track of which tags are placed on which assets.  Some RFID software solutions provide features to automate this process.
