ItemSense Enhancements Enable Shipment Verification in Supply Chain and Logistics Operations
Today we announced new ItemSense software enhancements which simplify RAIN RFID implementations that previously required physical techniques such as radio-frequency shielding, canted antennas, or multiple sensors. ItemSense transforms item-level RAIN RFID data into actionable business information—enabling business analytics and insight that drive strategic decisions. New features enable shipment verification in supply chain and logistics operations.
Key capabilities in ItemSense include:
- Enterprise-class management and health monitoring of RAIN deployments to simplify reader and gateway management, streamline system operation, and increase stability and uptime
- Software algorithms for inventory, location, and threshold detection reduce the effort and investment for delivering actionable information to business and consumer applications
- Easy-to-use, easy-to-integrate APIs enable application developers to quickly build powerful RAIN solutions that solve business challenges
“Logistics teams are looking to automate processes and provide real-time data about the movement of shipments with the systems that run shipping and receiving,” said John Frederiksen, vice president of product management at Impinj. “What’s unique is that the Impinj platform, including ItemSense and our gateways and endpoint ICs, can determine a shipment’s direction of travel without the need for cameras, lasers, or motion sensors.”
