Most Installed Wal*Mart RFID Software Gets a DoD RFID Upgrade

epcSolutions RFIDTagManager v 3.5 adds DoD Compliance with UID and WAWF submission

Great Falls, VA, February 18, 2007 --( epcSolutions, Inc. is excited to announce the release of version 3.5 of its RFID software, RFIDTagManagerTM. The 3.5 release now provides complete DoD mandate compliance, with the added benefit of UID. With the 3.5 release, it is possible to submit a combined RFID/UID WAWF remittance and material handling document, as well as a hard copy generation of the DD250.

One of the biggest additions to version 3.5 is the integration with UID and RFID. epcSolutions has just announced a partnership with A2B Tracking, to integrate their flagship product UID Comply! Into version 3.5. This integrated offering allows DoD suppliers to manage all aspects of UID creation, registration, validation and UID labeling requirements while seamlessly integrating that data with a complete RFID labeling and Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) submission in a single package. RFIDTagManager’s WAWF Wizard is used to import the UID data directly from UID Comply! based on the contract and CLIN pairs that are being delivered on the shipment. The combined UID and RFID data is saved to a UDF file and the file is electronically submitted to the DoD via WAWF.

“We have worked with our DoD enduser customers as well as our DoD resellers to enhance the capability of RFIDTagManager for DoD suppliers”, states Chuck Williams, CTO epcSolutions. “We have also worked with our partner, A2B Tracking, to integrate their UID Comply! Product with RFIDTagManager to provide a one stop integrated solution for all DoD labeling requirements.” Mr. Williams continued.

“The 3.5 version of RFID Tag Manager is very comprehensive in its support for Department of Defense requirements” says B. Dwain Farley, Chief Executive Officer of Domino EIS, “it provides the best level of integration of RFID and UID for a DoD supplier that we have seen”.

In addition to the enhanced DoD RFID functionality RFIDTagManager v3.5 adds a new API (SDK) which provides the capability to allow external programs to print tags and retrieve tag read reports. The new user management feature provides added security. RFIDTagManager helps enterprises reduce the time, cost and effort of implementing RFID projects and fully meet retailers’ and DoD requirements for RFID compliance.
