U Grok It helps manage your business inventory.
U Grok It, a Colorado-based startup, has developed a product that helps businesses manage their stuff. U Grok It allows businesses to track history, reduce loss, and pack and ship efficiently. It is also useful by allowing businesses to verify their shipping contents and locate specific items.
U Grok It is a smartphone RFID (Radio-frequency identification) which is a wireless non contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object which can then identify and track items. U Grok It is affordable and easy to use and offers a sleek RFID reader for iOS and Android devices. Learn more about U Grok It from its Co-Founder and CEO, Carrie Request.
