How to communicate the data between Syclo applications and RFID / NFC tags

531 Views Last edit Apr 12, 2018 at 02:18 PM 2 rev

Dear Team,

We have a business requirement to get the assets tagged with information encrypted in the tags.

They intent to use NFC / RFID for the same. Upon scanning the tag using tag reader ,the encrypted information like equipment number / material number should appear on the Syclo Mobile applications (Work manager / Inventory Manager), while performing transactions like notification creation in Work Manager and Goods issue / return transactions in Inventory Manager.

With guidance from SAP I got the information that we can use OpenScan with Work Manager / Inventory Manager .

But I have no idea on how to use OpenScan to fulfill this requirement.

If anyone has any knowledge on this, please share

  1. Please provide more information about OpenScan and how to implement that.
  2. Regarding Barcode we have field edit type as “Bar code”which is present in the agentry application, what will be in case of RFID’s?
  3. How exactly Open Scan will read the data and pass on to Syclo screen , as we need to capture the data in screen , so that with the help of RFC’s the data can be submitted in the SAP backend

Do we need any other skillset to develop OpenScan apart from Java / Agentry. Please suggest so that I can contact the right person in my team/organization to help me with this task.

Many thanks

Neha Mahanty
