Reva Systems, the leading RFID network infrastructure provider, and Sirit Inc a global provider of radio frequency identification readers, tags and embedded modules, announced that Manor AG, the largest retail business in the Swiss market, is deploying Reva's Tag Acquisition Processor (TAP) products and Sirit's INfinity 510 RFID readers to enable RFID operations at stores and distribution centers.

Manor will initially leverage RFID to improve warehouse inventory processes, outbound shipping accuracy and inbound store receiving practices.

Reva's RFID network infrastructure manages Sirit's industry-leading readers, providing an enterprise RFID architecture which supports current and future programs.

The implementation is being managed by Rodata AG, a systems integrator headquartered in Switzerland with offices in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Rodata has been instrumental in helping Manor conduct technical evaluations and build the business case that lead to this subsequent rollout.

Manor's RFID program encompasses its distribution centers in Hochdorf and Mohlin, Switzerland and the department stores around the country serviced by the centers.

Manor is utilizing case and transport asset tagging for apparel and general merchandise at both warehouses, and is working with several suppliers to pre-tag inbound shipments.

In the warehouses, mixed pallets of goods are built and RFID case tags are read while being shrink-wrapped for shipment. Manor also uses RFID to ensure the correct merchandise is loaded on the assigned trucks and shipped to the proper store locations.

Once shipments arrive at the stores, goods are automatically checked in using RFID readers, streamlining the truck unloading and goods stocking processes.

Manor expects to see improved inventory accuracy, better labor efficiency and shorter replenishment cycles due to these RFID enhanced processes.

Manor utilizes Reva TAP appliances and Sirit INfinity 510 readers in both the stores and distribution centers. Workflows that facilitate the tagging, verification, advanced ship notice (ASN) comparison and real-time handling processes are hosted locally on the Reva TAPs.

As tags are read by the Sirit INfinity 510 readers and their locations determined by the TAPs, the data is passed to an Oracle backend system which is responsible for orchestrating business processes.

Manor relies on their integrator Rodata as a trusted technology partner. Rodata's RFID Competence Centre developed the workflow applications which control the RFID capturing process, and was responsible for the RFID system design and physical implementation.

Accurate location association and tag direction are two of the challenges Manor needed to overcome due to the difficult RF environments in their distribution centers.

Ambient tags on staged goods, conveyors, pallet shrink wrap machines and bulk loading platforms combine to produce considerable cross reads which the Reva TAPs systematically eliminate.
