Hardware

Dauntless Traceability Services may be implemented without additional hardware (other than a PC, a badge scanner, employee badges, and an internet connection) and will still provide more innovative functionality, security, and return on investment than our competitors.

However, we provide an automated capability our competitors can't provide, when you add an integrated mobile device, NFC and RFID tags, smart card login security, Bluetooth printers, and more.

Hardware is optional, you only need to purchase the amount of hardware you feel is needed, and you can always add more hardware and expand your automation as you grow your business.

For the POS, there is a hardware requirement in order to secure your cash flow, age verification, ringing up sales, and money drops. Much of the POS hardware can be leased through our hardware as a service method which brings down the initial costs of deploying a world class enterprise point of sale at your stores. Please email info@dauntlessinc.com to get more information about our POS hardware as a service feature.

Listed below (with purchasing links) is the hardware we recommend for TraceWeed because we feel that it provides the most value for the price and has been tested over a number of years with our various system components. All of it is off-the-shelf hardware that can be purchased from any seller and set up by you to work with our system with very little effort.

Chip Embedded Tags

Clients will need a minimum of 10 tags for user authenticated system login, otherwise, tags are an optional feature for increasing automated traceability.

Automation starts by adding tags to your service. We can tag virtually anything with NFC, RFID, or a combination of NFC+RFID tags.

In the past, we have sold the tags for up to $0.75 or $1.00 each. All of our tags are reusable 10,000 times or more, but we wanted to bring the price down even more by partnering with GoToTags to enable our clients to purchase tags directly through them and reduce the cost of the tags down to as little at $0.35 or even $0.25 each.

To ensure uniqueness, functionality, and integration into our system. You will need to have the tags encoded by GoToTags at a cost of $0.05 per tag and have the encoding file generated by our system at a cost of $0.05 per tag.

This will drop the cost of a box of 200 tags from $150.00 ($0.75/ea) to $90.00 ($0.45/ea) and as prices come down or your volumes go up, you will automatically be able to take advantage of the new price breaks from one of the primary tag suppliers in North America.

USB NFC Reader for PC

Clients will need a minimum of 1 scanner for the main PC running our system (unless the PC has a built-in NFC reader).

We spent a lot of time working with multiple NFC readers on the market before settling on the Sony RC-S380 because it adhered best to cannabis industry standards, had the least number of compatibility issues, and mapped to all of our current and future needs.

In fact, Sony has an ipad version of the reader that has just released which will integrate into the Apple version of our software as we build it in the future (now that Apple has joined the NFC world).

To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Sony NFC reader through Amazon (or other outlets) directly for $32-$48 (You can get it through us for $55.00+tax/shipping).

You will also need to install this driver for the Sony reader (don't use the latest drivers, we are in the process of upgrading to them for Windows 10): Sony NFC Reader Driver for PC

Mobile NFC Scanning Device

For the 1.7 version of our TraceWeed product, clients will need a minimum of 1 mobile device for functionality available only on the mobile interface. For the 2.0 version of TraceWeed and all other TapNTrace products, the mobile device is optional for those that want to add mobility to their traceability solution.

When shopping for a mobile device, be sure it is NFC enabled (check the specs before purchase) and a Windows device (for now). The device doesn't need to be unlocked as our system uses your wifi connection. Our recommended model is the Lumia 640 as it has a nice sized screen, NFC, a decent camera, and can be upgraded to Windows 10.

To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Microsoft Lumia phone through Amazon (or other outlets) directly for $40-$150 (You can get a Lumia 640 through us for $150.00+tax/shipping).
