MARSEILLE, France (PRWEB) July 20, 2005 -
level RFID infrastructure, announced today that Rabobank, one of the worldÂs largest banks and EuropeÂs largest Internet bank, has successfully deployed an RFID-based cash-in-transit solution in 200 of its branches in The Netherlands. The application, a first of its kind on the market, will enable Rabobank to conduct person-independent cash delivery, allowing for more efficient cash deliveries.
Historically, the transfer has required a personal transaction between a Rabobank agent and cash-in-transit employee. Limited availability of employees at designated locations made it difficult and time consuming to organize the cash delivery. With RabobankÂs deployment of TAGSYSÂ RFID-based systems, used in conjunction with CaptureTechÂs SealTrackÂ software, the need for physical interaction during a cash delivery is eliminated. This allows for a secure handover during the day, with minimal intervention required by bank employees. By deploying TAGSYSÂ and CaptureTechÂs joint item-level RFID solution, Rabobank is able to create a much wider window of time for cash deliveries.
The application consists of high-frequency (HF) RFID tags embedded in bank seal bags that can be identified by TAGSYSÂ readers installed inside the bankÂs network of 200 safes. When a cash-in-transit employee delivers the money via seal bags, the TAGSYS RFID reader identifies the tag from within the metallic environment, confirming the bagÂs arrival. Previously, bank employees had to be physically present to receive the monetary transfer and provide the cash-in-transit employee with a receipt confirming the completed transaction.
ÂTAGSYS has a strong track record of successfully deploying item-level tagging in select vertical markets; when it came to developing an application addressing the banking industryÂs requirement for an RFID-enabled cash-in-transit management solution, they were our leading choice for a collaboration partner,Â said Sander de Ridder, Managing Director, CaptureTech.
TAGSYS created this application based on the companyÂs experience with tracking and tagging at the item-level. TAGSYSÂ item-level RFID solutions are developed according to the companyÂs RAS (Reliability, Accuracy and Security) design and production philosophy that achieves virtually 100% readability of HF RFID tags with a failure rate of less than three out of a million tags that are manufactured by the company.
ÂWhen partnering with CaptureTech it was our intention to develop a complete solution for the banking industry that would increase the efficiency and security of cash-in-transit transfers,Â said Elie Simon, CEO, TAGSYS. ÂTAGSYS has a rich heritage in providing select market sectors with RFID systems and tags, so it was a natural move for us to supply Rabobank with the worldÂs first solution of this kind.Â
