First Installation for ImageID in Japan
TEL-AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ImageID, a provider of patented, image-based traceability solutions, today announced that Nippon Pallet Pool (NPP) has decided to deploy the Visidot system to manage over 3-million pallets inventory.
NPP offers vendors an efficient physical distribution scheme. Customers can pick the pallets at any one of its 220 depots across Japan and return them in any other.
Accurate stock control is essential for the company's profitability. NPP evaluated several traceability technologies including RFID and concluded that ImageID's Visidot, a field proven solution for RTI Poolers, is the most practical solution in terms of cost, accuracy and system management.
Following an intensive evaluation and trial with excellent results, NPP proceeded to implement the first systems in a long term roll-out plan, aiming for full traceability across its service network.
“Visidot holds many benefits for the Japanese market” said Mr. Naohiro Okada, President & CEO of EZIS Solutions, ImageID's partner in Japan, "it met all NPP's quality and reliability standards". "Visidot enables much better asset management and superior customer service" adds Mr. Michio Okamoto, President of NPP.
With a virtually unlimited Field-of-View, Visidot automatically captures hundreds of pallet labels at once, with 100% accuracy. The decoded data is associated with a customer to ensure a full traceability database. In the NPP implementation, Visidot supports QR code, commonly used in Japan.
"We are very pleased that NPP chose our solution" said Dror Irani, ImageID's President and CEO, “In these difficult times, vendors realize that improved logistics can reduce operating costs and increase profitability.”
NPP was founded in 1972 by Nippon Express, the largest Japanese logistics provider, and Japan Freight Railways, former Japan National Railways. www.npp-web.co.jp
