Profiles

The modern enterprise recognizes the fundamental value of supply chain visibility. Visibility means that the enterprise should have unfettered and timely access to essential data that can help management reduce costs while simultaneously improving operational efficiencies. Access to supply chain data is mandatory for those looking to effectively compete in today’s ultra-global marketplace.


Profiles provides full visibility into supply chain and manufacturing metadata associated with all types of RFID transponder procurements. With over 1.5 billion transponder-manufacturing records being added per year to the Cloud, Profiles is the biggest repository of object ID’s in the world. A rich Web front end provides ad hoc query and reporting capabilities, while a RESTful set of Web Service provides software developers with access to supply chain metadata in an automated fashion.


By combining Profiles with other SMART COSMOS platform services, especially Objects and Flows, an even higher level of automation that can Connect Things! is possible.


Overview

  • The inherent capabilities differ between chip models and chip manufacturers. Profiles provides access to quality assurance data that includes the Chip Manufacturer, Chip Model, Attenuation, and Batch Yield, and many other metadata fields
  • Daily feeds from our global manufacturing plants means faster access to production data—even if your order hasn’t completed or even shipped yet. This means you can begin integrating tag data into your product planning cycles in a more timely manner.
  • Tags purchased from Smartrac can be flagged as “Round Rock” compliant, ensuring that the tags can be utilized in the retail space unencumbered. Our free Android application enables field verification of license compliance at any point in the supply chain.
  • From licensed apparel to name-brand products, Profiles supports the definition of arbitrary license values that fit your workflow and nomenclature. For example, a “NameBrand” license could be defined to differentiate between white label and brand offerings
  • Full featured Web UI for ad hoc reporting
  • A simple and well-documented RESTful Web Services architecture makes integration into back office systems or your commercial product offerings a breeze.
