Radley Corp., a developer of software solutions for manufacturing companies, has announced a technology partnership with Omni-ID, a supplier of industrial RFID tags. Per the agreement, Radley is offering Omni-ID's View tags and ProView visual tagging system, combined with Radley's solutions for work-in-progress (WIP) tracking, product traceability and containerization/kitting.
Omni-ID's ProView system consists of tags featuring a bistable LCD screen integrated with active and passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID transponders, along with proprietary software to "link" components and provide tracking, visual instruction and two-way communication for production floors. Radley's platform of products includes electronic data interchange (EDI), manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse-management system (WMS) solutions, and can be integrated with business systems including large enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial systems. By capturing data throughout the manufacturing process, whether utilizing traditional bar codes, machine integration or the use of RFID, Radley reports, customers can have access to real-time data across the supply chain.

"Radley's manufacturing and warehouse solution suite continues to expand by bringing Omni-ID and their unique and innovative RFID technology into the fold," said David Barks, Radley's senior VP, in a prepared statement. "Omni-ID's technology will enable our customers to collect more finite data with less human intervention, which will accelerate business processes and reduce errors."
Radley expects to release the new system in early 2016 at this year's RFID Journal LIVE!conference and exhibition, to be held in Orlando, Fla., on May 3-5. The company's booth at the event will be #112.
