Intellident are delighted to announce that their innovative Vision supply chain software has this month processed its 12 millionth RFID tag transaction a first and major milestone within the industry.
With over 300,000 crate-level transactions now accurately processed each week in the UK retail food supply chain, Vision represents the most significant RFID data processing engine on the market today, with significant high-volume food suppliers such as Danepak, Double H, Geest Group, Grampian Group, RF Brookes, Tulip, Uniq and Worldwide Fruit now consistently despatching at 99.98% accuracy, proving that RFID can provide real benefit across the entire supply chain.
The Vision software enables suppliers, distribution centres and stores to accurately and automatically receive and despatch items at case level, with a powerful rules engine that allows complex orders to be confirmed and orders to leave accurately, within date life, and with correct point-of-sale pricing. Vision not only ensures despatch and receipt accuracy, but also enables automatic EDI receipt, digital pick lists, transaction logging and advanced shipping notification.
Using a technology agnostic approach, Vision is currently managing local data processing applications with live HF and UHF implementations, proving the viability of both technologies, and will this month begin to handle the first major RFID implementation outside of the UK for Intellident.
Vision forms part of the food supply project to Marks & Spencer, which has this month been recognised by winning the Ian MacLaurin Award for Supply Chain Excellence together with the Food Manufacture Excellence Award for Ambient and General Groceries, in conjunction with Worldwide Fruit a significant supplier to Marks & Spencer.
It is anticipated that by January 2006 the weekly crate-level transaction rate for Vision will exceed the 500,000 point, equivalent to over 26 million transactions per year.
