Recall announces wearable RFID scanner program
Information management provider Recall has announced it is introducing a wearable RFID scanner program to its inventory at a Recall Information Center in Atlanta.
The technology facilitates continuous audits of Recall customer assets on a daily basis and involves the use of a belt mounted scanner that automatically audits tagged assets.
Technical trials have shown that this new scanning method has enhanced the overall process, as assets are regularly audited while the time needed for full site audits has come down from four weeks to a few days. The program is slated to be launched in more centres around the world in 2016.
Ron McMurtrie, SVP and global chief marketing officer at Recall, said: “With more than 50 million RFID tags in Recall Information Centers globally and more than 500,000 new tags created each month, Recall continues to provide customers with efficient access and control over their information. As we continue to further enhance our audit processes with RFID technology, we expect increased value for our customers as we provide near real-time updates, greater chain of custody documentation and stronger information governance programs.”
Jon Poole, Operating Technologies and Innovation at Recall, said: “In addition to reducing auditing time and costs, wearable RFID scanners and their continuous auditing can fundamentally change what we are able to provide in terms of ‘real-time’ visibility and reporting for our customers.”
