Encode & Waste Management
ExtrACT Encode is an RFID encoding station for recording product specific information and expiration dates selected by the user. The screen displays information about the product that has been encoded, triggering ExtrACT Print to create a customized RFID label to be placed on the selected product. All the events are registered and stored in the Cloud. The information recorded can then be analyzed for business intelligence purposes.
The Waste Station uses RFID technology and a touch screen to record fresh product that has expired, removing the product from inventory. The ExtrACT waste also gives the user the opportunity to kill unneeded tags, removing them from the inventory results.
