Wednesday 12 January 2005 03:22 CET | News

NCR has integrated a hybrid scanner, which reads radio-frequency identification (RFID) labels as well as bar codes, with the NCR Advanced Store point-of-sale (POS) application.

The solution is being offered for lab testing to retailers who want to evaluate the potential impact of item-level RFID tagging on POS operations and other store processes. NCRs RFID offerings encompass data warehousing, labeling solutions and a range of services. - The NCR RFID Services portfolio comprises consulting, design, integration, installation, maintenance and support. Drawing on its retail and radio-frequency technology experience, NCR tailors its services to help retailers define and negotiate the RFID course that best meets their individual goals. For example, a baseline assessment provides a thorough analysis of project impact on current systems, including application and data, and supporting business processes. This assessment is designed to help retailers see the size and scope of an RFID project - before they make a decision to proceed. - Enabling active data warehousing solutions with RFID, the Retail Logical Data Model (RLDM) 4.0 from Teradata, a division of NCR, supports the serialization of pallets, cases, items and store assets to optimize operations. The RLDM, combined with Teradatas extensive consulting services and specialized software applications, enable the Teradata Warehouse to deliver end-to-end product visibility. - NCRs Systemedia Division, a manufacturer of world-class printer consumables, offers a comprehensive RFID labeling solution to help consumer goods manufacturers meet retailer mandates while driving down costs and improving operational efficiencies. The solution is designed to reduce failure rates by assuring near 100 percent reliability of the final RFID label for cases and pallets.
