The Savi-ODIN offering will combine Savi's active RFID SmartChain software suite and ODIN's EasyEdge™ for passive RFID devices to automate the collection of passive and active RFID data onto a single platform. Unlike other componentized solutions requiring complex hardware and software integration, the SmartChain suite will be available with seamless modules that significantly reduce the time, effort and costs of implementing and utilizing software powered with real-time RFID information.
Further, SmartChain will be able to better track and manage IT assets and medical supplies, as well as help improve the performance of complex pick-and-pack and kitting functions.
