3M - RFID Tags


Maximize efficiency and improve 
customer service

Rewritable tags from 3M help libraries increase efficiency and productivity while maintaining security. Each tag contains a memory chip that can be programmed and reprogrammed with the information needed to identify and track library materials. Security status is stored directly on the tag, so there's no need for a separate server. In addition to being guaranteed for the life of the original item they're affixed to, tags only carry the item ID, thus protecting customer privacy. And because RFID technology eliminates the need for line of sight, checkout and return are simplified for both customers and staff. Tags also automate sorting, handling and inventory management. Your 3M Sales Consultant will help you determine the best 3M RFID tag to fit your needs.
