RFID continues to make major gains in the document storage sector. Recall Holdings Limited, a provider of document storage services, announced this week that more than 50 million of the assets stored at its information centers now carry RFID tags.
The company is tagging more than 500,000 items a month to enable the rapid tracking of the cartons, individual files and back-up tapes. Last year Recall began providing its own printable labels for in-house asset management. In 2012, Recall announced that it had tagged more than 25 million documents.
Recall began its RFID pilot nearly a decade ago in 2005 and offered RFID on document storage cartons globally in 2007. The company began to tag individual files and back-up tapes globally in 2011.
This week Recall unveiled its Recall Portal, which allows customers to self-generate RFID audit reports on-demand. Customers can customize RFID audits across all geographies and product service lines at any time and significantly strengthen information governance by identifying where all physical assets are stored.
With RFID, audits can be conducted in a matter of hours, instead of days and weeks and assists in the management of retention policies, which are critical to maintaining regulatory compliance.
“Within the industry, compliance and information governance are the main drivers for choosing to work with an information management partner,” says Jon Poole, RFID Manager, Recall. ”Customers prefer to work with Recall because we have the most advanced RFID technology to address compliance and information governance.
“Placing customized RFID audits in the hands of the customer via Recall Portal substantially strengthens their ability to create, implement and enforce information governance standards.”
