Checkpoint Systems Introduces New High-Speed RFID Tag

Download the New Wave report on the efforts taken by major denim players to deliver sustainable solutions across the supply chain and ultimately improve the health of the planet.

New Jersey-based Checkpoint Systems announced today the debut of new high-speed, high-quality production capabilities for RFID tags and labels, as well as a new order-tracking mobile app.

EVO, as it has been dubbed, allows for both faster printing and greater customization of RFID tags by retailers, including heavier and uniquely-shaped tags that are unable to be printed with conventional RFID thermal printers.

According to Checkpoint, EVO is capable of encoding, verifying and printing variable data on high-quality, high-performance RFID labels at ten to fifteen times the speed of conventional RFID thermal printers. EVO also allows for printing of lower volumes of high-quality tags, reducing costs for retailers, and can be customized to allow tags to be printed on both sides.

“Up until now, high-quality RFID tags required large formats and high volumes of printing,” said James Wrigley, President and COO of Apparel Labeling Solutions for Checkpoint Systems. “EVO’s advanced technology uses templates for a retailer’s specific variable data, such as SKU, style code, department, size, color, barcode and price. That, coupled with its high speed, enables a more efficient printing process that provides retailers with significant cost savings and a faster turnaround on orders.”

Checkpoint also announced the launch of Check-Net, a new order-tracking mobile app for smartphones and tablets that allows retailers to quickly access account information, check order status, and receive push notifications regarding orders. With Check-Net Mobile, retailers can track orders all the way through the production cycle, check orders across multiple Check-Net accounts, and review and approve or decline orders. Both iPhones and Androids will be supported, the company said.
