SimplyRFiD Pogi Server User Manual

Chapter 1: Introduction

Thank you for purchasing SimplyRFID’s Pogi Server. Before using the product, please read this manual carefully to fully understand the functions and performance of the Pogi Server so as to ensure correct use.

Key Functions

1. Database Storage Pogi is a web-based server that stores the essential RFID tag data for inventory management and control. Pogi stores the following information: Tag ID, Asset ID, Read Date, Tag State, Location.

2. Optimized Speed in Database Search

Key Features

1. Report Generation The report generation module allows you to directly extract all the information you want from the database and either view it directly online or export it in open formats via Application Program Interface (API) or to an end-user running a web User Interface (UI).

Pogi can run complex reports (real-time mapping, alarms, workflow) and may be integrated with cubing or data mining storage for heavily complex queries.

2. Database Filtering Database filtering allows you to see only the data that you want displayed in Pogi database. You can use filters to display specific records in a report, query, or datasheet.

Limitation

Pogi does not act on the data, it is optimized to rapidly store and search data.
