IBM, Pliant Add RFID Tracking

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. -- Pliant Corporation and IBM (NYSE:IBM - News) today announced that Pliant has implemented an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) platform pilot program, designed by IBM consultants, to track shipments between the two technical centers and customer sites and detect tampering in its stretch-wrapping products. The RFID solution enables Pliant to use handheld devices to track products and identify potential tampering in real-time.

"The RFID system we've implemented provides us with a real-time view of our products' security and location so we can ensure that we will meet our customers' expectations," says Doug Lilac, Pliant's Technical Director for Innovation. "The goal of this program is to commercialize practical and cost-effective bulk packaging solutions that incorporate RFID technology."
