Starport Partners with MerchManager to Provide RFID Tags

With a goal focused on creating an affordable end-to-end RFID solution, MerchManager has developed its mobile RFID App platform on Android and iOS.  By leveraging smartphones and tablets we are able to eliminate the on-board computer historically a part of mobile readers.

Benefitting from the smart-device’s data communication methods, we removed the need to build a network infrastructure–processing and uploading data can now be done anywhere an internet connection is available.  And the smart-devices touch screen provides an intuitive user interface enabling users to begin utilizing the technology with little to no training.  Our approach has eliminated many of the costs of traditional RFID systems.

MerchManager can be used as a tool to furnish up-to-the-minute inventory data to your current system or as a stand-alone application for companies who do not have an existing inventory system in place.

By offering an end-to-end solution including an RFID Reader, RFID enabled printer, RFID tags and ribbon, as well as print software, users are equipped with all necessary hardware and software for complete implementation and begin using this impressive technology.

Among the benefits customers will see from use of the software include; faster restocking, decreased stock-outs, decreased shrink, decreased labor costs, and the ability to self-manage inventory.  Additionally customers have reported increased revenue due to their improved ability to load real-time inventory data directly into their eCommerce, Point-of-Sale, or other inventory system.

“Working with Starport Technologies has provided MerchManager with a valuable partnership.  Helping determine the right tag for our customers individual applications we are able to ensure them the highest possible read results.” – Stan, MerchManager CEO
