VBA for RFID reader - specifically the Alien Reader Protocol

I'm working on an inventory control program in Access 2007 and want to add RFID tracking to a couple areas. I have searched the web but haven't found any useful information about using RFID readers with Access. Anyone have experience with this? The readers I have in mind are made by Alien and they use there own protocol over TCP. There is an SDK for .Net but not sure if that helps me out or not. Thanks in Advance.

Why not go directly to the source and ask them?

I was going to try asking them eventually. Since I'm paying for EE and usually get my questions answered quickly I thought I'd try here first rather than roll the dice and see if Alien's customer service actually responds.

I saw from their website that Alien isn't too far from me so I'm to visit them so I can see some real world RFID tag performance as well as grill them about the software interface. It will probably be 2-4 weeks before I can do the trip, will post back what I find out.
