Consumable Authentication Enabled by SkyeTek's RFID Reader Technology; RFID Helps Ensure Quality and Safety for Manufacturers and their Customers
DALLAS --(Business Wire)-- Feb. 27, 2006 -- SkyeTek, Inc., the developer of ReaderWare, is seeing continued market adoption of its consumables authentication solution to help companies in healthcare and other industries prevent counterfeiting of branded consumables, ensuring the products their customers buy and use meet the original manufacturer's standards for quality and safety.
"Behind SkyeTek's market traction is a growing need for consumable revenue assurance, safety, brand integrity, and quality," said Rob Balgley, CEO of SkyeTek, Inc. "Unfortunately, counterfeiting is a serious problem that can increase costs to the consumer and adversely affect performance and quality of products such as those used within the healthcare industry and in broader market segments. SkyeTek's solution has helped companies and their consumers significantly curb the dangers associated with counterfeiting."
SkyeTek's consumable authentication solution provides manufacturers with the components needed to easily integrate SkyeTek's reader technology into their existing consumable-dependent products. Consumables that interface with the product are tagged by their manufacturer with a passive RFID tag which is read and authenticated by a reader embedded in the product. Counterfeits are not accepted by the reader because they lack an authenticated tag, and reused consumables are recognized by the reader as having been previously used, helping to promote safety, brand integrity, and quality. By tagging their consumables, SkyeTek customers have also benefited via in-store theft protection and improved supply chain tracking capabilities.
