An RFID Industry First Is Announced

Published: Tuesday, April 24, 2007 - 22:00

(TAGSYS: Cambridge, Massachusetts) -- TAGSYS, a provider of item-level radio frequency identification (RFID) infrastructure, has announced its unprecedented RFID “Six Sigma Performance Program” for pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Six Sigma is a quality-of-service performance guarantee of fewer than four failures in one million read opportunities in the item-level track-and-trace process. TAGSYS also announced the Six Sigma Performance Program is available as a subscription service and with an automatic technology upgrade feature—also industry firsts.

Data integrity and data accuracy are key to success in item-level track-and-trace deployments. Until now, pharmaceutical manufacturers have grappled with consistently and predictably achieving six sigma performance levels from their RFID infrastructure, a key to meeting regulatory, liability or chain-of-custody requirements.

“TAGSYS’ Six Sigma Performance Program is based on our consistently high performance in volume-production deployments over millions of items” says John Jordon, president of TAGSYS worldwide field operations. “TAGSYS and our certified partners are moving the industry forward by delivering a higher-value solution to customers today.”

The Six Sigma Performance Program is also available as a subscription service where customers can pay a flat monthly fee for an agreed level of service. The subscription service comes with a Tech Refresh feature that allows customers to take advantage of new reader and tag technology as it becomes available without costly upgrade fees.

In addition, the Six Sigma Performance Program comes on the heels of TAGSYS’ release of “e-connectware,” a software suite designed to manage global RFID networks. e-connectware is a comprehensive set of software management and administrative tools that enables quality-of-service, including centralized deployment, management and administration of RFID readers and application systems, proactive monitoring of those systems, on-the-fly performance tuning and fail-over.
