A Quick Guide to this web-site


This Web Site is divided into three principal sections: Learning, Applications, and Products


In this section we provide general information about our core technologies. We keep this generic, and the information provided is not specific to SageData (though we slip up from time to time, and perhaps use specific examples to demonstrate a point). Feel free to browse, to get a general idea of the capabilities, the strengths and weaknesses of specific technologies. We address handheld computers, barcodes and RFID, as well as other related topics.


The technologies lend themselves to specific applications, and we discuss those applications here. They include Inventory Management, Asset Management, Inspections, Manufacturing, Proof of Delivery, Maintenance Tracking. Again, we try and keep this section generic, but as above, we sometimes use our products or established systems to illustrate a point.


In this section we talk about the specific products we offer, and how they can be of benefit to you. There are five elements to most of our installations: System Design, Software, Hardware, Labels, and Support. We examine those here, and begin to get into the specifics of our systems, how they work, what they can do for you. We also address the details of specific hardware: handheld computers, barcode readers and printers, and RFID readers and tags. You can find information on barcode labels, pre-printed and plain stock, in this section.
