Mapua Institute of Technology Streamlines Library Processes With Automated UHF RFID Solution

Service Provider ClarIDy Solutions, Inc. Relies on CSL to Deliver UHF RFID Readers and Antennas for Automatic Library Project

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Today, Convergence Systems Limited (CSL), a global provider of passive RFID products and active RTLS equipment, announced that the Mapúa Institute of Technology in the Philippines has transformed its library services with a unique Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID solution from CSL and ClarIDy Solutions, Inc.

Mapúa Institute implemented the IDSmart™ library solution early this year at its Intramuros campus in Manila in order to significantly enhance library processes to better serve its faculty and students. According to Taiwanese service provider ClarIDy Solutions, Mapúa was the first school in the Philippines to install this UHF RFID solution, which uses CSL UHF products at Self-Service Stations, Self-Return Stations and RFID Security Gates.

"The objectives are to improve the workflow processes in our libraries, to solve inventory problems, and to save time," said Emerald L. Lansangan, Mapúa's chief knowledge officer. "With this efficient UHF RFID system in place, faculty members and students can now expect faster and shorter queues when borrowing and returning library materials, and librarians are free to focus on assisting our students with their research queries."

ClarIDy is a total solution provider with years of experience in hardware design, project integration and library domain know-how, offering total UHF RFID solutions for library applications. The IDSmart™ system incorporates ClarIDy custom RFID book tags carefully concealed in the books, and encoded with the library's existing automation system. With these tags, the library books can be quickly and easily inventoried, checked in and checked out using a portable inventory reader, self-service library check-out station, self-return station or book drop. In addition to improving reader service and work processes throughout the library, security also is enhanced with RFID Security Gates at the building exits.

"Convergence Systems Limited was an ideal provider for the UHF library initiative since they provide a variety of high-performance RFID readers and antennas," said Megan Wu, global sales and marketing manager of ClarIDy Solutions. "We are excited to work with CSL and appreciate their support on the Mapúa Institute of Technology Library project."

"In addition to providing greater efficiency and cost savings, this solution also offers real-time statistics of library patron visits, and real-time inventory reports can be generated instantly using CSL readers with Internet connectivity," said Jerry Garrett, managing director, Convergence Systems Limited. "Increasingly, libraries are switching to UHF RFID frequencies because the UHF tags cost less than HF tags, and the read ranges for UHF are much greater than those offered by HF technology."

Due to the success of this UHF RFID system, the Mapúa Institute plans to install this library solution at its Makati City campus as well.
