Every since I was young, I always though about the idea of having a clone of myself.
I could send my clone to school while I played video games all day.
And now that I am grown up, my problems have only multiplied.
Businesses everywhere face multiple problems on a daily basis.
One is taking attendance of who and where people are.

But, how can we solve the same attendance problem that we face at multiple fronts?

An integrated solution is what we need.

In the land of dinosaurs, there existed the home telephone.
The home telephone had a long wire and was normally connected to the wall right outside the kitchen.
Not only was it very inconvenient, it became out-dated.
The era of wireless is here.

But why are you still using big clunky wires to collect DEX Data?

Lucky for you, there is a solution.

This past weekend, I went to my local grocery store to quickly buy breadcrumbs in hopes of filling my stomach with deep-fried shrimp.
However, it was SuperBowl weekend.
I soon found myself standing in a long line for the under 15 items scanner holding A bag of breadcrumbs.
As I was standing there moving a centimeter per minute, I thought to myself how wonderful it would be if there was a scanner that you could just push your cart through and have everything scanned.

Using handheld scanners in business can feel the same way.

The cows are taking over the world!
Well, not quite.
Since around 2006, veterinarians have implanted animals with Low Frequency (LF) RFID technology to store animal profiles.
The LF RFID technology for livestock most commonly uses 134 kHz spectrum, and are commonly attached to ears of livestock (cows, sheep, horses, pigs).
For pets, 134 kHz and 125 kHz are most commonly used, and tiny glass encased tags are typically injected with a syringe into the pet with no sustained discomfort.

Today, our World is full of "smart" devices.
Thousands of devices that can send information between each other.
But how can they be so "smart" when it takes me a decade to connect my phone to my wireless speaker?
By making everything smart, my phone constantly switches bluetooth connection from one device to the other without me actually wanting to switch.

Luckily, there's a smarter way.

In late 2017, the state of Virginia had a very rare occurrence.
When electing the representative for their 94th District, the state held a recount.
The recount led to the discovery of a ballot that was weirdly marked.
This then resulted in the election ending in a tie and being decided by pulling a name from a hat.

When humans manually do a task, the task usually has a greater risk of error and is less time-efficient.

Many businesses, healthcare centers, and schools are still using manual attendance systems.

On occasion, I enjoy riding my bicycle.
It's very soothing to see the scenery, take in nature,
maybe even start some small talk with a neighbor.
I think I ride my bike at a pretty fast pace, but if I was in a Formula 1 race, I'm pretty sure I would need something with more power.

Sometimes, that's exactly what we need in the workplace as well. More POWER.

When working with built-in phone NFC Readers, it can sometimes feel like you are riding a bike in a Formula 1 race.
There's a faster solution.

Every morning, I start my day off with a cup of coffee.
However, I don't have much time before I need to be out the door.
Luckily for me, I can program my coffee maker to start making coffee at a certain time.
This is just one example of how automation and technology make our lives easier and more productive.
If not for automation, our lives would be filled with simple repetitive tasks.

So why is our work life filled with those simple repetitive tasks?

Hello.  안녕하세요.  Bonjour.  こんにちは.
If you could read those 4 languages, you would be part of the 3% of people who can speak 4 languages fluently.
Well, the Radio-frequency Identification (RFID)/ Near-field Communication (NFC) world is very similar to the one we live in today.
There are thousands of tags that speak different languages and integrating all of them into one system can be a hard task to conquer.
But with love technology, it's simple and quick.

In order for this process to be efficient and accurate, the data must be accessible from a mobile device.
