Recall Receives Patent for Groundbreaking RFID Technology

Global Leader in Data Protection Granted Market Exclusivity for Information Auditing Solution

Norcross, Ga.—September 26, 2013Recall, a global leader in document storage, secure document destruction, digital document management and data protection announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent for the company’s Data Protection Services (DPS) asset management process powered by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). The patented solution leverages Recall’s industry-leading experience and expertise in RFID technology to deliver premium security protection for a business’s most valued information assets.

Recall’s sophisticated print-on-demand technology enables companies to seamlessly transition their data storage from traditional barcodes to RFID tags. Each asset tag is printed, labeled and uniquely encoded in a single step, eliminating the chance of mislabeling media.

RFID delivers information audit reports with 99.999 percent accuracy, and unlike barcodes, RFID signals do not require line-of-sight to locate information assets. They can pass through non-metallic barriers for verification of media within closed cases or cabinets. Additionally, Recall’s patented print-on-demand process can preserve media identification numbers and colors, which eliminates the need to change internal coding within existing systems.

Recall customers gain the following benefits with this patented process:

  • Accuracy. Allowing for media verification within closed cases and cabinets,
    RFID readers do not require line-of-sight scanning, and signals can pass right through non-metallic solid barriers.
  • Speed. RFID broadcasts can accurately capture multiple tags simultaneously at a rate ten times faster than previous manual methods, which eliminates the need for human-driven data collection and lowers costs.
  • Simplification. Large volumes of media can be quickly and accurately tagged, simplifying the overwhelming task of regulatory compliance.
  • Unique ID. Every Recall RFID-enabled media asset has a globally unique Recall ID – that means there is no other like it in the world.

“We are very excited to roll out our patented RFID offering to businesses around the globe,” said Heather Generes, Global Vice-President of Marketing at Recall. “Recall’s innovative culture helps customers better manage the increasing challenges of information overload by delivering solutions to enhance existing and new information management programs. Today’s announcement further positions Recall as a global information management innovator.”

“Recall revolutionizes the information management industry again with our innovative use of RFID,” said Jon Poole, RFID Manager at Recall. “The wide range of customer benefits associated with our media asset management process solidly demonstrates Recall’s competitive advantage. We look forward to helping companies around the globe perform more rapid, accurate information audits and remain fully compliant.”
