"By taking RFID as its starting point the Red Ledge system realises the true potential of this game-changing technology. We believe it is the first of its kind to do so" says Red Ledge managing director Andy O’Donnell.
Software application and engineering company Red Ledge has chosen industry event ‘Logistics Link Live’ (NEC, June 4-5) for the first public showing of its new ‘Red Ledge RFID Manufacturing & Logistics’ end-to-end production and warehousing system built on RFID* technology, which the company believes is the first of its kind.

For all manufacturing and logistics processes, and without human intervention Red Ledge RFID portal or ‘chokepoint’ readers are used to seamlessly track every stage of production and warehousing, capturing and reporting data in real time from RFID-tagged assets, with near-100% accuracy. Manufacturing and logistics documentation (shipping paperwork, for example) is also automatically generated by the completion of processes and tasks.
"RFID increases automation, accuracy and efficiency. Product visibility is high, inventory control is optimised and process knowledge is maximised, leading to improved performance in both factory and warehouse," says Red Ledge managing director Andy O’Donnell.
"Most systems of this kind bolt on RFID as an afterthought. By taking RFID as its starting point the Red Ledge system realises the true potential of this game-changing technology. We believe it is the first of its kind to do so," O’Donnell adds.
‘Red Ledge RFID Manufacturing & Logistics’ can be integrated with all mainstream ERP systems. The company also offers its Manufacturing and Logistics solutions as two separate RFID system options. Red Ledge runs no-obligation ‘offer trials’ to help user organisations wanting to get closer to RFID. The company can also provide non-RFID, bar coding solutions with an upgrade path to RFID. RFID is up to 90% faster than bar coding, where employees have to physically scan every asset, say Red Ledge.
The global RFID market is forecast to grow at 22.4% per annum (CAGR) to 2018, according to Infiniti Research.
