Recall Document-Storage Center Adopts TSL Wearable RFID Readers

Information management solutions provider Recall, a document-management company that provides RFID-enabled document-storage services, has introduced a new wearable RFID reader program at a Recall Information Center in Atlanta, Ga., where documents are stored. According to the company, the readers are worn by Information Center personnel and are designed to enhance the efficiency of auditing and chain-of-custody processes for documents that are tagged with passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID inlays complying with the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C standards. Recall expects to roll out the wearable readers this year to additional Information Centers around the world.

The program is using a Technology Solutions UK Ltd. (TSL) 1153 wearable RFID reader, designed to read and write data from and to RFID transponders and communicate with a variety of host devices via Bluetooth wireless technology. The wearable readers enable continuous audits of Recall customer assets during the course of daily operations. As employees move throughout the facility, a belt-mounted reader automatically audits tagged assets. Recent technical trials indicate this new scanning method has improved the overall process, Recall reports, as assets are regularly audited, complementing full site audits and reducing the time required for such audits from up to four weeks to only a few days. The company is currently using only TSL's 1153 device for the wearable RFID reader program, though Recall says it is testing and exploring other models as well.

Recall launched its RFID program in the United States in 2005. Since then, additional offerings for the program have included global availability for RFID on document-storage cartons, individual file and backup tape RFID labels, patented printable RFID tags for in-house tracking, on-demand online reports through Recall Portal, and the recent expansion to wearable RFID technology for continuous auditing of customer assets, the company says.

"Recall has been a pioneer in integrating RFID technology into the information management industry and has been focused on improving and innovating this technology for a decade," said Ron McMurtrie, Recall's senior VP and global chief marketing officer, in a prepared statement. "With more than 50 million RFID tags in Recall Information Centers globally and more than 500,000 new tags created each month, Recall continues to be first-in-class for providing customers with efficient access and control over their information. As we continue to further enhance our audit processes with industry-first RFID technology, we expect increased value for our customers as we provide near real-time updates, greater chain of custody documentation and stronger information governance programs."
