Savi Technology has developed version 5.0 of SmartChain, the company's software platform and application suite for the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in supply-chain management. The product is built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), providing a framework for integrating real-time data from all types of wireless technologies with enterprise systems or information services. SmartChain transforms data from any standards-based automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) technology, including barcodes, sensors, passive or active RFID, cellular, global positioning systems or other types of satellite communications. Automated alerts of supply-chain events and exceptions can be automatically transmitted to users in a secure environment via the internet, cell phone or personal digital assistant. SmartChain also serves as the common platform for Savi's suite of application software, including Savi SmartChain Asset Management, Shipment Management and Consignment Management.
