VTLS Inc. has combined RFID technology with our years of experience in meeting the needs of libraries around the world. The Fastrac Circulation Management System has been designed to anticipate the flexibility, budget, growth, and security issues challenging libraries in the future. Efficiencies and features are built-in to reduce staff workload by processing more items in a shorter period of time with fewer steps than traditional barcode circulation.
Fastrac uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology along with your library’s ILS circulation system to save time and labor when performing library transactions. RFID tags can be programmed with your library’s item barcodes, and once all of your library’s items are tagged, you can use RFID equipment to provide faster and less labor-intensive check-outs, check-ins, security, sorting, and inventory. With Fastrac and RFID, you can provide your staff and patrons timesaving features such as patron self-check-out stations and return chutes, which automatically check in returned items.
