    • 7. Tagsys’ RFID systems are used in hundreds of applications worldwide… I   N   V   E   S   T   O   R     P   R   E   S   E   N   T   A   T   I   O   N Current applications provide innovation & the building blocks for future large-volume solutions 13 RFID is a promising technology for healthcare applications where reliable identification means are required. Tagsys RFID systems have been used for surgeon pack identification, blood bag authentication as well as other medical applications. RFID enables more efficient solutions to the management of waste collection by providing unique identification means for waste containers. Tagsys provides customized RFID readers and antennas, rugged enough to withstand the harsh environmental conditions of this application. RFID -enabled self-service kiosks offer new services at lower operating costs and enhanced asset security. Tagsys RFID technology is implemented in automated dispensers used in a variety of industries including the DVD rental market. RFID technology is used in libraries to automate the book handling process. Tagsys offer enables multiple-item check-ins and check-outs, rapid shelf inventories and automated book returns. Tagsys works with software and automation equipment providers that integrate its offer into cost-effective customizable RFID components. Libraries RFID implementa- tions have shown a 3% to 5% reduction in supply chain costs, and 2% to 7% increases in revenue from inventory visibility.* Tagsys has designed customized RFID solutions to enhance supply chain visibility, accuracy and effectiveness in the areas of smart shelving, warehouse management and automated distribution. Supply chain management * Source: AMR Research Environmental management Self-service kiosks RFID has been applied to numerous vehicle applications such as toll collection, secure identification, tire traceability, insurance authentication and maintenance management. Tagsys has RFID experience and solutions to address each one of these applications. Vehicle RFID offers courier companies the opportunity for improved automation of their sorting and distribution processes, in addition to increased item visibility and traceability. Tagsys has designed a paper-thin and flexible RFID tag ideally suited to this application. RFID is used by companies worldwide to improve food processing, traceability and quality controls. Tagsys has implemented RFID solutions for the processing of cheese and meat products and continues to develop food supply chain solutions. Courier Food RFID systems in textile rental improve asset usage and eliminate significant manual labor. Tagsys is focused on automating the garment and linen handling process. Tagsys RFID systems can be integrated with most industrial textile handling equipment and software. Textile rental RFID tags are the only reliable traceability solution for returnable containers. Tagsys addresses the needs for the traceability of gas cylinders and plastic crates. Returnable containers Healthcare
