Technology Leaders Team Up To Offer End to End Retail Supply Chain RFID Solution

Scottsdale, AZ, October 29, 2014 - CYBRA Corporation, a prominent developer of RFID software solutions and Jamison RFID, the leading manufacturer of RFID portals, announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership to deliver turnkey RFID solutions to retail customers. The new solutions include everything retailers need to implement RFID for foolproof inventory tracking and loss management.

CYBRA is the developer of the EdgeMagic® Integrated RFID Control Software Platform as well as the award- winning MarkMagic™ Bar Code Labels, RFID Tags, Electronic Forms, and Report Writing Software. Jamison RFID (a division of Jamison Door Company), is the leading manufacturer and integrator of rugged, purpose-built RFID portals and communications enclosures. The strategic partnership is being announced at the 2014 Retail Value Chain Federation (RVCF) Annual Fall Conference.

This partnership offers retailers field-proven, ultra-high performance hardware and software that is purpose-built for the retail supply chain. Meeting the needs of high volume DC operations through store requirements for the back room, POS, and loss prevention, the companies have successfully implemented this solution for leading retailers, and look forward to sharing their results at the RCVF Fall Conference.

“The retail market is slowly but surely starting to move forward with RFID integrated into the front of the store, enabling retailers to capture store visibility data and use it to optimize operations and create a competitive advantage,” said Anthony J. Dublino, Director of Commercial Sales for Jamison RFID.  “Case and item labels can now be read at the back of the store in receiving, read again when moved from the stockroom to the selling floor and read one last time at the front door as an EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) measure for the merchandise. The CYBRA partnership brings retailers the tools they want and need to improve profitability, facilitate seamless reordering and reduce shrinkage.”    

End to End Retail Supply Chain RFID Solutions

CYBRA has engineered the solutions by integrating the company’s EdgeMagic RFID Control Software Platform with off-the-shelf Jamison RFID portals as well as custom hardware jointly developed by the two companies.

Following are some of the retail needs met by the joint venture’s offerings:

In the DC   

  • High Speed Inbound Carton/Item validation
  • High Speed Outbound Order validation
  • Batch Kill for repackaging RFID tagged items.

In the Store

  • Loss Prevention
  • Seek and Find
  • Auto Move between Back Room and Selling Floor

Custom-developed hardware includes an RFID Cage designed for quick integration onto high speed conveyor lines, a Portable RFID Portal that can easily be rolled anywhere in the DC, an RFID Skid that turns any forklift into a high speed cycle counting machine, and a range of loss prevention enclosures to accommodate different retail store layouts.

According to Michael Shabet, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for CYBRA, “We’re delivering outstanding value with RFID solutions that are helping retailers and Retail Brand Owners (RBOs) achieve real performance gains. For the first time, retailers can audit every single item in inbound and outbound cartons with greater than 99% accuracy. We look forward to showing attendees here at the RCVF conference how we can help these leading retailers achieve similar productivity gains using our jointly developed RFID solutions.”
