Convergent Software works closely with RFID-related standards and develops data encoding and privacy compliance software to support and encourage the correct use of RFID.
The European Commission has long held concerns over privacy issues related to RFID applications. As a result EN 16571 RFID Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) has been published in 33 European countries. Now with organisations having to implement the General Data Protection Regulation by May 2018, the need for a PIA is even more relevant. Convergent Software has developed software, the RFID PIA Recorder, to greatly reduce the effort required to complete the EN 16571 RFID PIA. It also mitigates the risk of errors inherent in a manual assessment process.
ISO 28560-2 provides libraries with the opportunity to adopt the most popular International Standard for RFID. It enables a flexible structure to the data encoded on the tag to support a range of applications in the library beyond circulation control. The standard has been adopted by many libraries and some systems vendors. Convergent Software has developed a range of ISO 28560-2 software products to enable more libraries and vendors to adopt the standard in a fully compliant manner.
We have also developed software for airline baggage handling and we are open to working in new different sectors.
Because our software supports encoding rules specified in ISO/IEC 15962, we are able to develop solutions for other sectors, including some aspects of GS1 EPC.
We have also worked on cross-sector applications such as software for Digital Signatures in ISO/IEC 20248.
