iGPS Pallets and the Internet of Things (Page 2)

Continued from Page 1.

“Our RFID enabled pallets, as they travel throughout the supply chain, allow our clients to strengthen their relationships with their end-customers while capturing and understanding value chain data in an innovative way through epcSolutions’ RFID solution,” said Jack Sparn, Chief Information Officer for iGPS. “The proven scalability of this solution improves efficiency between all partners. With the data available in our central repository, patterns and trends are spotted instantly, enabling adjustments to further streamline the supply chain process.”

With iGPS’ pallets traveling between thousands of locations, this implementation of the Internet of Things generates millions of RFID read transactions daily, all transmitted to their home office using industry standard protocols and encryption. This timely and accurate data collection allows iGPS visibility into their entire inventory so they can make important billing, manufacturing and logistics decisions. Implementation of the initial solution required only six months for a full deployment, with additional functionality and sites being added to the network regularly.

“With the convergence of RFID technologies transmitting via Ethernet protocols, Alien Technologies has an opportunity to become a market leader, as companies with the most IOT-equipped products and services will prevail,” said Patrick Ervin, Vice President of World Wide Sales. “Our integration with epcSolutions provides seamless visibility, from pallets and cases to individual items, leading to higher yields of productivity and lower costs as they pass through a network of Alien RFID readers.”

“With these market motivators combined with global standards through GS1, we will collectively trigger the ROI tipping point that allows solutions like our IOT RAMP framework to provide end-to-end visibility of any asset at all times to improve global efficiency, reducing the carbon footprint of humanity, and eventually making a global Internet of Things possible,” Russell continued.

epcSolutions’ RFID software and communication infrastructure used in the world’s largest Internet of Things implementation is publicly available as the Internet of Things Reusable Asset Management Platform™ (IOT RAMP™).
