Schreiner PrinTrust Supplies RFID-enabled Labels for Physical Assets Management Solution

System developed by software provider seventhings allows companies to keep exacting inventory of business infrastructure.

Schreiner PrinTrust, a developer of customized RFID solutions and security labels for system and service providers with a focus on identification and authentication solutions, is supplying RFID-enabled films for seventhings, a Germany-based company whose software system seamlessly manages physical assets. Among other potential applications, the time- and resource-saving tool helps large organizations keep exacting inventory of furniture, technology and other assets, improving business efficiencies and preventing redundant infrastructure investments.

With the ability to localize and earmark objects, the cloud-driven, subscription-based physical assets management software has since been adopted by several organizations, including universities, insurance companies, local chambers of commerce, and business institutions.

In developing the solution, seventhings’ founders, Steffen Prasse and Patrick Boden, prioritized user simplicity and intuitiveness. “We wanted our solution to help companies reduce the high staffing requirements involved in the conventional, physical counting of assets, and avoid redundant purchases with our digital physical assets management tool,” said Prasse.

To date, Schreiner PrinTrust has delivered several hundred thousand RFID labels for seventhings’ digital physical assets management solution. “Immediately after the rollout, clients can see that they save time, human resources, and therefore money with our RFID-based solution,” said Dr. Kai Schnapauff, Director Schreiner PrinTrust.

The collaboration between Schreiner PrinTrust and seventhings began with a small-scale project in 2018. One of seventhings’ clients was seeking an RFID assets management solution capable of working reliably in outside elements, and with adequate reading range even on metal objects. The solution involved Schreiner PrinTrust’s RFID-DistaFerr labels – and led to an ongoing partnership. “We are a young company and are happy to have an experienced partner in Schreiner Group,” said seventhings’ Boden.

Moving forward, seventhings intends to evolve its physical asset management platform to further its customers’ sustainability goals. The objective is to make it easier for companies to return physical assets than dispose of them. As a result, physical assets not only become smart but also sustainably managed.
