Rath Information Systems / Tag Express Awarded RFID Contract
Bellefontaine, Ohio-based Rath Information Systems / Tag Express—an IBSA affiliate—received its largest and most lucrative contract in the company’s long history. Terri Schneider, president, explained the project will be a five-phase bar code system integrated with RFID technology. It will be implemented over the next 60 months, and could exceed $1 million.
The customer will use barcode scans for tracking materials received from suppliers and for monitoring both works in progress and finished goods inventory, as well as for scanning products being shipped. The comprehensive asset, personnel and process tracking system integrates multiple technologies, from simple barcodes to state-of-the-art RFID.
Said Schneider, “In phase five, we will be tracking their returnable shipping containers/racks outside the facility using a combination of RFID and GPS technology.”
Rath Information Systems / Tag Express partnered with Analytica, a RFID technology provider, to develop its own RFID expertise.
