EnvisionWare revolutionizes RFID with launch of RFID Tablet Tag

Atlanta, GA, July 6, 2015. EnvisionWare, a leading provider of self-service and library efficiency solutions, announced a groundbreaking advancement for libraries using RFID technology. EnvisionWare's new RFID Tablet Tag is designed to enable libraries to circulate mobile devices securely, including iPads, Androids, and other tablets, as well as e-readers.

The Tablet Tag works like a traditional RFID tag used in books and other print materials and can be used for both security and circulation. According to EnvisionWare, the performance is comparable to their standard RFID book tag, which is reported to be approximately 20% more effective in read distance and performance than other tags in the library market.

"This is a huge step forward for libraries using RFID technology," said EnvisionWare Co-founder and CEO Mike Monk. "Many libraries are offering tablets and e-readers as part of their core services. Now they can consider circulating these devices as they do for books and other media."
