NCR Corporation announced it is applying RFID tags to cartons and pallets of retail technology products shipped from its Atlanta Customer Fulfillment Center.
The service is made possible by the implementation of NCR TransitionWorks Retail RFID Compliance, a turnkey application package offered by the company's Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) Solutions Group.
"We are currently sending RFID-tagged shipments to a major retailer and look forward to extending this value-add service to other NCR retail and hospitality industry customers," said Dale Grant, vice president, Americas, for NCR Retail and Hospitality Solutions. "Businesses that implement RFID solutions in their supply-chain operations can gain added efficiencies by being able to automatically identify and validate the NCR shipment, including the individual items, and direct it to the proper destination."
NCR's Customer Fulfillment Centers - which are strategically located around the globe - offer a variety of services that include staging, configure-to-order and warehousing of NCR and third-party technology products, plus shipping to its customers' distribution centers, stores and other facilities. Shipments destined for many of the world's largest retail and hospitality chains leave the NCR centers every day.
The NCR TransitionWorks Retail RFID Compliance package provides all the components needed to install and implement a solution that fully meets retailers' RFID mandates. The package is one of the offerings in a suite of pre-defined solutions built on NCR's AIDC software development platform, NCR TransitionWorks. These solutions organize and communicate data collected through RFID, bar-code, biometrics, voice and other AIDC technologies. The solutions provide visibility to inventory and assets, allow organizations to automate processes, and interface with other software including enterprise resource planning (ERP), data warehousing and analytics solutions.
