New software for RFID labelling
ClearOrbit, vendors of supply-chain-execution software, has introduced
new bar-code and radio-frequency identification label compliance-management
software that is designed to work with any warehouse management or enterprise-resource-planning
system. It is aimed at helping businesses make bar-code labels and RFID
tags without recourse to custom code, consulting, or new IT infrastructures.
Known as the Xtended Label Manager, it is written in J2EE and connects
to any warehouse management or ERP system and bar-code label and RFID
printers. There are two versions, X.LM Gold and X.LM Silver. The former
offers additional features such as bar-code and RFID printing over the
Internet, which will allow users to print RFID tags at shipping docks
via Web page or Web services. It is compatible with major bar-code formats
for warehouse, auto, retail, and health care, as well as formats mandated
by General Motors, Ford, and Wal-Mart.
