Harrisburg, PA and Waltham, MA --

Tyco Electronics

and

OatSystems

have formed an alliance to offer a radio frequency identification (RFID) solution for industrial manufacturers to realize business benefits of RFID by automating asset management processes.

Asset management across multiple facilities and trading partners may be simplified by the implementation of such RFID wireless networking technologies. However, the companies note that adoption has often been hampered from a lack of proven solutions, as well as by the cost and time to develop, test, and deploy custom applications.

Combining Tyco Electronics tag solutions with OatSystems asset tracking software should enable businesses to realize their return on investment (ROI) faster. By providing integrated software and hardware solutions, affirmed by customers, the companies can give industrial manufacturers tangible benefits such as improved control and less loss of reusable assets (such as shipping containers) and heightened supply chain visibility to allow for better planning and customer service.

“Clients want hardware and software solutions with the added value experience to bring scalable, low-risk RFID capabilities to their operations,” said Eric Freid, director RFID Solutions at Tyco Electronics. “By working with OatSystems, Tyco Electronics can now offer its customers the best of both worlds: applications from the leader in RFID enabled software and a selection of active, passive and semi-passive tags combined with our extensive services and hardware.”

OatSystems CEO Michael George added, “Tyco Electronics and OatSystems are committed to providing integrated RFID solutions, reducing the time-to-value from the shop floor to the corner office. We are focused on delivering proven solutions that provide benefits out-of-the box, without requiring significant investments in testing, training and infrastructure.”
