As Manufacturers Confront RFID Compliance, One Solution Provider Offers Certified Know-How

Share Article

Big box retailers and the Department of Defense have laid down the law for vendors: ship with RFID (radio frequency identification) tags or don’t ship at all. A Minnesota-based high-tech integrator specializing in bar code and auto ID systems responds with a bundled solution that takes the mystery out of this fast-growing technology.

Wayzata, MN – May 8, 2006 - Wireless Network Solutions, Inc., a provider of value-added auto ID (automatic identification) and data collection solutions, announced Friday that it has completed certification as a ScanSource RFID Edge™ Solution Provider.

Upon completing the program, Wireless Network Solutions, Inc. created its own RFID Quick Start kit, a bundled solution that provides clients a fully operational RFID system in 48 hours or less.

Major retailers like Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target have adopted RFID (radio frequency identification) to identify and track inventory, and now require their suppliers to do so as well.

An RFID “smart label” contains an embedded tag generated by a RFID printer. The latest tags, known as “Class 1 Gen 2,” standard, can hold a large volume of data, company and database information. Once decoded with a RFID Mobile Computer or Gate Reader, that information can be instantly transmitted to a computer network. The technology offers to streamline business processes including supply chain management, inventory control, and security.

“I’ve found that people have heard a lot about RFID, but don’t know where to begin. We developed this kit as a “proof of concept” so they can become comfortable with the technology and identify processes that would benefit from it,” Tom Eagan, CEO of Wireless Network Solutions, said.

“Companies will discover that RFID complements their existing bar code infrastructures. With our core competency in bar code scanning and data collection, we are well-positioned to assist clients in determine if RFID is right for them.”

The ScanSource RFID Edge program consists of 4 ½ days of intensive hands-on training in a warehouse environment. Participants gain the skills and knowledge necessary to build a comprehensive RFID solution, which includes tags, labels, middleware, readers and printers.
