Manfredi Special Services Adds RFID Technology for Tote Tracking
Cleveland, OH (August 1, 2003)- Manfredi Special Services (MSS) has completed final R&D and testing of RFID technology used in the tracking and management of its clients tote fleets and other returnable assets. The RFID offering is fully compatible with the MSS internet based tracking system (A.R.M.S.) and yields real-time supply chain information and visibility via the World Wide Web.
"The RFID capabilities offer a great compliment to our existing RF hand-held scanning programs. Our clients with large fleets and/or a high volume of useage can now get real-time supply chain visibility without having an employee scan a barcode" stated Eric Amstutz, Vice President of Business Development.
Mr. Amstutz went on to say "Although the concept of RFID is quickly becoming a buzz word in the industrial services sector, there are many unique and challenging issues associatied with tracking a tote fleet solely through RFID technology, and we have been working on this project for over two years before feeling comfortable with bringing it to market".
