RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. The acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip on the RFID Card. The RFID device serves the same purpose as a bar code or a magnetic strip on the back of a credit card or ATM card; it provides a unique identifier for that object. And, just as a bar code or magnetic strip must be scanned to get the information, the RFID device must be scanned to retrieve the identifying information. RFID Technology makes it easy to capture the attendance and other info of the students or staff in a fraction of second. The RFID Card serves the purpose of a ID Card also as it carries the Photo and other information of the card holder. IFW is an authorised partners of all the major RFID Machine Brands.

Bar Coded I-Cards / Library Cards
There are 3 components that make up a Barcode card based Time and Attendance system/ Library Book Issues/Return system in IFW ERP. First, barcode readers are used to allow employees / students to make quick and accurate time transactions. Second, data taken from these devices needs to be managed and stored by PCs connected and taken into IFW ERP. Third, management of the time transactions, payroll generation, Library transactions etc. are done by the different modules of IFW ERP to give the user smart reports and analysis. Bar Code based Cards can be printed in-house by the campus easily and immediately any time. So, it saves a lot of time and per card cost.
A smart card is a plastic card with a small, built in microcomputer chip and integrated circuit that can store and process data.
