Paxar UK, a global leader providing bar code and identification technologies for the retail supply chain and the supplier of Monarch brand products and services, today launches the industrys first ever express RFID Service Bureau, the Monarch Q-Service.
The service, which is now fully operational, enables suppliers to global retailers needing RFID shipping and pallet labels to take fast delivery of these labels, programmed with unique RFID data and printed with barcode and human readable data. Companies needing RFID programmed labels can now simply provide Paxar with the data to be encoded, and the human readable and bar code information to print on the RFID label. Paxar takes care of verifying the RFID chip, encoding the data, and printing the label. The finished labels are then express shipped.
A major benefit stemming from Paxars latest solution includes the ability for suppliers to meet retailers current RFID needs without having to invest in expensive hardware or systems. Furthermore, todays deal will help enable suppliers to meet the forward facing, ever-increasing, RFID compliance changes, placed upon them by major grocery retailers.
Paxars Vice President of Service Operations, John Powell, stated: We successfully filled many orders in the second quarter. The first customer to use our Q-Service capabilities was a large package delivery company. We ran the order and shipped it meeting their delivery expectations. The customer was entirely satisfied with the service and the 100% read rate of the labels provided. Paxar is pleased to offer this unique programme, so that suppliers can begin meeting RFID mandates immediately with absolutely no investment in specialised systems or equipment.
Todays announcement follows recent news regarding Paxars Technology Implementation Protection Programme, for RFID users, and highlights Paxars focus on providing a total solution to meet the ever changing demands of RFID.
