SimplyRFiD Releases 'Wave: Audit' — RFID Quality Assurance App for Retail
Wave: Audit is an iOS app from SimplyRFiD that provides manufacturers and retailers the tools needed to accurately test RFID tags for UPC decoding, tag readability (read range/strength certification), and delivery order counts. Wave: Audit is available for pre-order on the SimplyRFiD website for 50% off through May 8. Official availability May 9 in the Apple App store for $49.95 per month.
"In the early days, misencoded, missing or unreadable barcodes created problems," said Carl Brown, President of SimplyRFiD. "This still exists today when you reach a register and the barcode is unscannable or missing. Our app Wave: Audit is designed to increase the quality expectation of the RFID technology replacing barcodes.
"We have taken Wave into the retail stores and initial 'audits' of SGTIN-encoded RFID tags at retailers are showing about 5% failure to properly encode RFID tags. Wave: Audit gives manufacturers the tools needed to correct their tagging," added Brown.
RFID in Action
There are two major issues changing from barcodes to RFID and Wave: Audit solves them.
Wave: Audit-Certify: Wave: Audit has a built-in wizard for placing tags on items, testing the tag readability, and saving a picture of the tagged location, the tag inlay information, and the certification results. Expert training from SimplyRFiD allows manufacturers to ensure their tags work correctly when tagged.
Wave: Audit-Delivery: Delivery audits the production line. Delivery will scan a box or pallet, display the UPC decodes, detect invalid tags, and save the delivery (product UPC counts) to a shipment for ASN (advance shipment notices) or other quality manufacturing needs.
SimplyRFiD's Wave: Audit is available starting May 9 in the Apple App store. Annual/Enterprise plans are available directly from SimplyRFiD. Wave: Audit requires an iOS device and a CS108 RFID Handheld. Please contact sales@SimplyRFiD.com for more information or visit us for in-person demo at the RFID Journal Live event May 9-11 in Orlando, Florida.
