Nedap integrates Zebra technology in !D Cloud RFID retail platform

Nedap announces that it has now completed the integration of all cornerstone Zebra RFID technology for retail in-store stock management within !D Cloud, Nedap’s leading RFID platform. The integrations spans the RFD2000 and RF8500 series handheld RFID sleds, the TC5x and TC2x series Touch Mobile Computers and the ZD500r and ZT400 series RFID printers.

Remarkable is deep level of support that !D Cloud offers for the RFD sled devices, where even the firmware updates are managed through the !D Cloud solution. For the printers !D Cloud uniquely offers in-app printing of individual RFID labels or complete shipment that come into a store without RFID labels for the manufacturer. Here the label template and Zebra Programming Language (ZPL) print commands are managed directly from the !D Cloud App via in-store Wi-Fi to the printers, thus eliminating the requirement and costs of label print software.

Jeroen Struycken, Business Development Manager !D Cloud at Nedap comments: “We see an increased demand for RFID solutions in retail and as the leading RFID provider we want to offer our customers the choice of the best products out there. By nature !D Cloud is hardware agnostic and support a multitude of RFID devices, but having the width of the Zebra equipment as a standard in our toolbox is a big plus.“

The recent Zebra TC20 PDA and RFD2000 handheld UHF RFID sled, combined with Nedap’s !D Cloud solution. will presented at the Nedap booth #5B60 at RetailEXPO 2019, which will be held at the Olympia in London on May 1-2.
