The RK25 Comes with a UHF RFID Reader to Empower Users in both Barcode and Tag Reading for Product Tracking and Inventory Management
The Ferrero' Family was the first Italian manufacturer after World War II to open production sites and overseas offices in the confectionary sector. In the following decades Ferrero became more global with  

companies and plants in North and South America, South East Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, Australia; and, more recently, in Turkey, Mexico and China.

One of Ferrero' Family's companies, Kinder Chocolate, has one factory, 4 self-owned warehouses and over 300 distributors' warehouses in China, where more than 600 mobile computers and 100 plus UHF readers are deployed as workers' companions for overall supply chain management tasks. It has an SAP system that the Ferrero Family adopted to better control the production history database, sources of raw materials, expiration dates, sales volume and more. Through a combination of mobile computers and UHF readers, many daily tasks are carried out including product tracking in channels and stores, packaging, receiving, and dispatching in warehouses and factory.

Therefore, in addition to requiring excellent mobile computer performance, the ability to read UHF RFID tags and accurately capture those tags on boxes stacked high and at more than a 1-meter reading distance without being influenced by their metallic wrapping paper is of great importance to our users. 

CipherLab's RK25 has two different reading angles, 10 and 70 degrees, so Ferrero Family workers can fulfill different applications and operations without becoming overly fatigued. It also easily adapts to both indoor and outdoor environments with its stable Wi-Fi and 4G connections whether doing product tracking at stores, or checking inventory at the warehouse. It's especially easy for workers to switch between barcode and UHF RFID reading with the RK25 UHF RFID reader due to its lightweight and easily detachable design. 

The result of using the UHF RFID reader for this project was its remarkable overall deployment progress. CipherLab China provides immediate, direct support and a round-the-clock contact window to ensure optimized product performance regardless of users' working environment. The CipherLab RK25 fulfills not only all performance inquiries, but also provides a superior return on investment.

Software Resources
ADC Is Updated With More Friendly Functions To Provide Administrators Greater Efficiency
CipherLab‘s self-owned mobile device deployment software, Android Deployment Configurator (ADC), has been upgraded and equipped with new functions to further help device administrators manage and deploy settings easily. General settings can now be applied to most CipherLab mobile computer 
models (excluding the RS30) so that administrators can now generate a 'general project' and won't need to set up each model one at a time. This means that overall efficiency is greatly increased. Also, ADC now includes a EZConfig configuration. EZConfig provides a convenient console for quick configuration of all settings in the RK25 UHF RFID reader. Users can also customize settings to best fit their individual needs. Aside from that, a customization feature is also being added to this update so administrators can modify the color and the font of the interface.

The CipherLab Android Deployment Configurator (ADC) is a windows-based configuration tool. It integrates all configurations into one single platform. Settings such as Barcode Reader, Button Assignment, WiFi setting, Terminal Emulation, AppLock, system settings, and more are easily accessible from this tool. Different settings can also be saved into one group, and different groups can be made based on different scenarios. The Wireless Mobile Deployment System (WMDS) is a windows-based server program that helps configuration settings created by ADC to be deployed on Android-based devices through a wireless network. WMDS was created with the aim to optimize the process of multiple device deployment tasks.

Use ADC and WMDS to your advantage. It will certainly be of great help to your device management. Contact CipherLab for further information.
