The time is right to embrace radio frequency identification (RFID). The technology is proven. The costs are affordable and the benefits can be truly transformational. TouchStar is a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. We help capture, move and manage critical information, providing businesses the means to access real time information anytime and anywhere. Specialising in the design and supply of rugged mobile devices, our solutions also include sophisticated software for a wide variety of warehouse and supply chain applications.

The purpose of an RFID system is to enable data to be transmitted by a portable device, called a tag, which is read by an RFID reader and processed according to the needs of a particular application. The data transmitted by the tag may provide identification or location information, or specifics about the products tagged, such as price, colour, date of purchase, etc. Asset Tracking, Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management, Retail, Security, Medical and Airline Baggage are examples of operations likely to generate the most dynamic benefits. Optimising the individual components and their integration into a total solution takes extraordinary levels of domain knowledge and years of actual project implementation experiences across a variety of industries and operating environments to ensure your RFID solution successfully addresses your critical business issues:

Reduction of supply chain shrinkage - Opportunities for reducing shrinkage within supply chains as a result of diversion of goods or losses are ostensibly in the region of 50% at case level and between 10-15% at pallet level

Sortation of items - Opportunities for enhancing item sortation processes, such as those encountered in clothing manufacture and distribution, wherein time and associated cost savings of greater than 40% may be achieved

Flexible manufacturing - Opportunities for more item-specific manufacturing operations to be performed using automated read and control functions to achieve more efficient processes, wherein process improvements of greater than 10% may be achieved

Item identification in condition monitoring - Opportunities for improved identification of system components and tools for conditioning monitoring purposes, wherein the management may be achieved more efficiently with potential cost savings greater than 10%

Reductions in inventory - Opportunities to reduce inventory by more than 5% or more in appropriately selected circumstances

Improved asset management and maintenance - Opportunities for improved management and utilisation of assets, such as reusable containers, wherein savings in time and associated cost and maintenance could be greater than 10%

Enhanced field services - Opportunities for location, plant and item tagging that can facilitate more efficient and effective field maintenance and support services, wherein savings in time and associated costs could be greater than 20%

Labour and more efficient time-and-attendance management - Opportunities for improved labour management and associated costing’s yielding savings in excess of 20%

TouchStar’s RFID Solution smooths out implementation issues that reduce operating efficiencies and help ensure worker acceptance. TouchStar’s solutions maximise the total value you obtain from your RFID technology investment. Offering a complete range of consultative, design, manufacture, implementation and support services, TouchStar take you through the steps to create the “best fit” mobile computing solution that will deliver business performance improvements to your operational processes.
