"Asset tracking and inventory systems read information from labels or tags affixed to physical assets and help manage information such as item quantities, locations, personnel assignments, and maintenance needs. Emergency response agencies use them to keep track of important items such as firearms, vehicles, evidence, tools, medical kits, and disaster relief supplies. To provide emergency responders with information on asset tracking and inventory systems, the System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) Program conducted a market survey. This market survey report is based on information gathered from February through April, 2016 from vendors, Internet research, and a government issued Request for Information that was posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website. For inclusion in this report, the asset tracking and inventory systems had to meet the following criteria: (1) Commercially available software for the tracking and/or inventory of physical assets (2) Integrate barcode, radio frequency identification (RFID), and/or global position system (GPS) technologies Due diligence was performed to develop a report that is representative of products in the marketplace."
