We are committed to helping customers extract businesses value from their investments in tracking technologies and believe these enhancements to VisiblEdge will be yet another tool at our disposal to help drive operational performance, quality and productivity.

Rush Tracking Systems (http://www.rushtrackingsystems.com), an industry-leading RFID business process consulting and systems integration company, announced today the integration of an optical positioning solution with the company's VisiblEdgeâ„¢ RFID lift truck package. This solution is designed to provide enhanced flexibility, location accuracy and business value in tracking assets with RFID-enabled lift trucks in place of or in conjunction with RFID portals or handhelds. Representing the next generation in RFID-enabled lift trucks, this system integrates accurate and reliable RFID data collection with low cost, flexible and precise load location information to support location based events such as automatic receiving, staging or shipping..

Showcased in Rush Tracking Systems booth #920 at RFID Journal LIVE 2009 (April 27-29, Orlando, FL), VisiblEdge RFID-enabled lift trucks with optical positioning provide load ID and business location data to a backend WMS or ERP, with accuracy to within one foot. This enables VisiblEdge users to optimize RFID lift truck fleet operation and management using truck location and run-time data. VisiblEdge can support location-based services such as automatic shipping and receiving and integrates with backend applications with no direct labor.

"Incorporating optical RTLS with our VisiblEdge solution provides our clients with a flexible and cost-effective option for the most demanding tracking and positioning use cases. As companies continue to rationalize facilities and evolve business processes on the floor, they want a positioning solution that can be configured in software versus concrete," said Toby Rush, president and CEO of Rush Tracking Systems. "We are committed to helping customers extract businesses value from their investments in tracking technologies and believe these enhancements to VisiblEdge will be yet another tool at our disposal to help drive operational performance, quality and productivity."

VisiblEdge is a complete turnkey packaged solution that combines RFID data collection devices, load detection sensors, and positioning data with market-leading VisiblEdge software to automate the process of turning the physical movement of assets to business events which can be sent to back-end applications. VisiblEdge is the culmination of significant development efforts, years of collective experience and successful field deployments by Rush Tracking Systems. VisiblEdge enables unprecedented granularity for identifying and tracking the status and location of goods and assets. This data supports improved operational control with greater inventory turns and accuracy, improved shipping and receiving accuracy, streamlined material movement and reduced working capital.

VisiblEdge is ideally suited for industrial manufacturing environments supporting business processes such as automated shipping and receiving, returnable container tracking, work-in-progress tracking, waste management and other hands off asset tracking applications. VisiblEdge enables organizations to automatically capture lift truck locations, and determines and verifies pickup status and location of loads, without any required operator scanning or typing.
