NCR unveils new RFID package for manufacturers

NCR Corporation has unveiled a new out-of-the-box offering that enables manufacturers to quickly meet retailers' mandates for delivering merchandise with radio frequency identification, or RFID, tags at the case and pallet level.

By CBR Staff Writer

The package, NCR RFID Retail Compliance, provides companies with all the components needed to install and implement an RFID tagging solution in a matter of hours. It consists of NCR application software, an RFID printer, a bar code scanner and a startup supply of RFID labels that comply with the EPCglobal Generation 2 (Gen2) standard. Also included is a year of software telephone support.

The software component of NCR RFID Retail Compliance is built with the NCR TransitionWorks development platform, which has been deployed at hundreds of sites worldwide. The Gen2 labels, from NCR’s Systemedia Division, provide close to 100% utility in finished tag product, the company claims.

The package includes installation wizards that eliminate the complexity of configuring printers, software and tags, allowing users to avoid costly project management or other custom services. In addition, the NCR solution can be readily upgraded as operational requirements grow and the number of products that require tagging increases.

More retailers are mandating RFID tagging for more products. As a result, many consumer goods manufacturers are telling us they want this capability without spending the time and money needed to implement a custom process, said Ken Hamlin, general manager of NCR’s Automatic Identification and Data Collection Solutions Group.
