Real Time RFID Solution for Wineries

Aug. 30, 2010
Silvertap, a Free Flow Wines brand and industry leader in wines on tap, is working with Mobile BIS, providers of mobile technology services, to develop RFID technology-based mobile software that tracks and validates every step of the wine keg’s product lifecycle. From the warehouse to bars and restaurants around the world and back, every keg of wine in Silvertap’s pipeline is tracked.

“One of the largest sources of loss for the beer and wine on tap industries is loss of kegs,” Jordan Kivelstadt, managing partner of free flow wines explained. “With the software … using RFID technology, we’re able to keep accurate track of where our kegs are in the marketplace.”

The Silvertap software system is also designed to work with the Psion Teklogix Workabout Pro handheld computer, running Windows Mobile.

"We worked closely with Mobile BIS to combine its software with our Workabout Pro to provide Silvertap with a custom mobile RFID solution," said Dave Peddemors, vice president, North American sales at Psion Teklogix.
