RedPrairie Introduces Scalable, Pre-Configured Solutions for RFID

RedPrairie Corporation, a global leader in technology  solutions that enable business process transformation, announced today at
D/C Expo the introduction of scalable, pre-configured compliance solutions  to support clients in addressing various retailer RFID mandates. The  solutions provide total packaged capabilities from simple slap n ship  to highly automated encode on the fly functionality using RedPrairie's  RFID IgniterTM solution; these pre-configured solutions offer  low-risk,  easily to implement alternatives for RFID compliance.

RedPrairie offers three pre-configured solutions developed in conjunction  with leading Consumer Packaged Goods manufacturers that have met mandates  from Wal-Mart and other retailers. All solutions are based on RedPrairie's  RFID Igniter software, combined with "off-the-shelf" hardware  configurations and service options. The Level 1 solution provides simple  post-pick slap "n" ship capabilities with label printers. RedPrairie's  Level 2 "extended" solution supports semi-automated in-line label encode /  print / apply. The Level 3 advanced system offers inlay encode / print  application to be used with automated warehousing and production environments.

Within the Level 2 or 3 solutions, a pre-configured conveyor, applicator  hardware and controls are provided with options to integrate to existing  production automation controls.  All solutions include alternatives for  case/ pallet verification using mobile terminals or fixed portals and  support EPC, ISO and DoD protocols.

"There is a lot of confusion in the market around RFID compliance and how  to select a solution that will deliver return on investment.  Based on our  extensive experience with multiple retailers, RedPrairie has developed  simple, straightforward, low-risk options for meeting the mandates," notes  Royanna Chappell, Vice President RFID Product Marketing at RedPrairie.  "For example, since the same RFID Igniter package addresses multiple  mandates, we can scale from low volume slap "n" ship to higher automated  120-case per minute production, protecting our clients" initial investment in software and hardware."

RedPrairie Company Leader John Jazwiec comments, "RedPrairie's industry-leading RFID program reinforces our commitment to expanding our RFID capabilities in our core markets, while leveraging our leadership position in systems for consumer goods manufacturers."

RedPrairie's comprehensive, integrated solutions suite includes: warehouse management; transportation management; workforce performance management; event management; slotting; visibility; performance measurement; and RFID.
