Abstract

Asset management is important to all modern organizations. It becomes critical when assets are equipment on which lives depend. The development of communication and wireless technologies, such as the new Near Field Communication (NFC) has opened new doors for efficient asset management. Store managers and keepers can now use mobile lightweight devices for asset management. In this paper, we propose and implement the first NFC-based mobile asset management solution for medical equipment. Our solution provides a unique security feature that allows immediate detection of tampering with any equipment's description. Furthermore, we critically review existing works and compare them to our solution and show its efficiency.
