ClearOrbit, provider of real-time supply chain execution (SCE) software solutions, announced its product suite that allows companies to "layer-in" complete RFID capability on top of existing ERP systems, without requiring custom code or the "tear out" of old bar code or ERP software. The J2EE architecture offers a complete RFID solution that can be added to any ERP system. The software leverages the same configurability and scalability used to power bar code, print label compliance and RF/mobile connectivity at thousands of manufacturing and distribution facilities across North America, Europe and Asia.
The RFID Product Suite is a seamless combination of three products: Compliance Label Manager, RFID Tracker and Collaborative Print Manager. Compliance Label Manager is a turnkey RFID software that works in tandem with legacy bar code systems. Designed for business users, not programmers, it is "rules-based," and allows users to define and manage their own label formats. Working in tandem with Compliance Label Manager, RFID Tracker offers platform-independent transaction management of tag readers, as it provides the transaction context required to translate the information received from an RFID reader and maps it to, for example, a purchase order-receiving transaction in the ERP. Finally, Collaborative Print Manager leverages ClearOrbit's Internet architecture and web-based management console to allow users to burn RFID tags across continents or any geographical distance, over the Internet. By driving RFID and bar code label production from a customer's ERP, suppliers can easily comply with RFID requirements. All that is required is an RFID printer and an Internet connection at the supplier's site.
