Service & Support
Jamison is dedicated to delivering prompt and courteous service to all of our customers. That is why we stock most repair parts in our multi-million dollar inventory and can ship stocked parts the same day if the order is received before noon. This is just one more way that Jamison delivers.
Jamison RFID has partnerships with Universities and other Academia to further promote "Standards" as well as higher learning and research.
Automatic identification (AutoID) is the collection of data without direct human intervention. Bar codes, radio frequency identification (RFID), magnetic strip (the back of your credit card), biometrics and smart cards are all types of AutoID. The AutoID Lab at the University of Memphis was started with the arrival of Dr. Kevin Berisso, who as a strong history in the AutoID field. Concentrating on helping companies and students with ALL of the AutoID technologies, the AutoID Lab's goal is to educate on and promote the use of the correct AutoID technology for a given problem. The lab views the various technologies as enabling technologies - a means to an end; not an end in and of itself. The goal of the Automatic Identification (AutoID) Laboratory is to promote the usage of all of the automatic identification technologies. Whether it be bar coding, radio frequency identification (RFID), biometrics or smart cards - the AutoID Lab is ready to help both students and companies to make the right choices.
The Food Innovation Center (FIC) Agricultural Experiment Station is located in Portland, OR. The FIC is a resource for client based Product and Process Development, Packaging Engineering and Shelf Life Studies, and Consumer Sensory Testing. Research work is conducted to develop innovative Processing and Packaging Technologies. The FIC also engages in scholarly research in Agricultural Economics and Marketing. The Agricultural Development and Marketing division of the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) located at the FIC provides Local, National, and International Marketing Access and Development.
We partner with: the Department of Food Science and Technology (FST) to provide educational programs and subject matter expertise, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to provide start-up business development education for entrepreneurs, Portland Development Commission(PDC) for grant funding opportunities, Oregon Micro-enterprise Network (OMEN) working with small enterprises in both rural and urban locations. The collaborative work at the FIC provides many opportunities for producers, processors, marketers, and entrepreneurs to actualize their food to market goals.
The RFID Center of Excellence at Penn State Behrend was established in 2005 as a collaborative initiative with the Center for E-Business and Advanced IT (eBizITPA). The mission of the center is to conduct RFID research and outreach resulting in strategic advantage and economic growth for the industry.
The following list illustrates our specific objective at the center:
- Assist businesses (manufacturers, distributors, retailers) in the implementation of RFID technology in order to increase productivity, reduce costs, and prepare for supply chain customer compliance.
- Assist information technology providers to attain RFID expertise and to develop RFID implementation offerings, includes software development and implementation services.
- Conduct and coordinate applied research in the areas of RFID technology and the application to supply chain management.
- Integrate RFID technology into Penn State Behrend engineering and business school curriculum. Facilitate sharing of RFID knowledge amongst higher education faculty.
- Disseminate knowledge of RFID technologies through educational outreach.
- Provide prototype-testing services for customized applications.
In June 2003, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. asked its top 100 suppliers to begin tagging products at the pallet and case level by January 2005. This initiative, along with as similar move by the Department of Defense, jump-started an entire industry centered on production and optimal application of RFID technology. The University of Arkansas and over 30 industry-leading companies have joined forces to support a multidisciplinary, neutral, third-party research and testing facility, the newly formed RFID Research Center, a sub-unit of the Information Technology Research Institute (ITRI) at the University's Sam M. Walton College of Business.
RFID Lab stems from multi-year research activities performed at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Parma. The lab focuses on exploring the applications of RFID technology and the EPC system to business processes.
Founded in 2006 by Prof. Antonio Rizzi, RFID Lab was the first Italian laboratory which tested RFID UHF class1 gen2 applications, and aims at becoming a main research center for RFID applications both in the Italian and international context. Research activities, first focused on the food and fast moving consumer goods fields consumer, encompass several market segments, including, among others, paper, textiles, pharmaceuticals, health care and public administrations. All the companies that experiencing significant issues in product flows “visibility” and “traceability” along the supply chain, involving inefficiency and waste, may substantially benefit from RFID technology implementation and research activities performed at the RFID Lab.
