The Sato and Loftware cloud-based RFID tag encoding and logging solution uses Sato RFID printers and tags and Loftware NiceLabel cloud software to meet manufacturers’ strict track and trace, brand authenticity, and authentication requirements.
The first-to-market solution logs the EPC and unique tag ID for every tag encoded, enabling “closed-loop” tagging. By logging and mapping the EPC and unique ID to the database via NiceLabel Cloud, the Sato solution automatically keeps a unique record of every tag after encoding and allows users to know exactly which factory, country, and printer generated it.
Loftware NiceLabel is available on-premise and in the cloud. Customers may start with an on-premise solution and then migrate to the cloud as they scale their labeling across applications, facilities, and countries.
In addition to central data management, this extra layer of automation provides compliance with traceability requirements and eliminates the possibility of counterfeits. It complements the suite of RFID products already available for item-level traceability.
“Manufacturers are constantly seeking ways to improve their data utilization for digital transformation to give visibility across their supply chain, and this new layer of traceability will drive efficiencies and enable more sustainable operations,” says Yoichi Abe, vice president of Sato Holdings Corporation, who oversees Sato’s global business. “As pioneers of on-site data collection, you can count on us to always be pushing the boundaries of what is possible.”
