Collaboration to drive adoption of IoT solutions for supply chain management
RFID Global, a leading provider of asset management solutions, announced it has joined the RAIN RFID Alliance. RAIN RFID is an industry alliance founded by Google, Intel, Impinj and Smartrac, and hosted by AIM, the automatic-identification trade association. RAIN is focused on promoting awareness, education and programs to accelerate the growth and adoption of UHF RFID in business and consumer applications.
Similar to the Wi-Fi community and Bluetooth Alliance that have transformed their industries, RAIN’s objective is to emulate this success for RFID.
The collaboration will bring additional resources to RAIN’s effort to evangelize technologies that connect billions of everyday items to the internet. Data from these items help businesses run their operations more efficiently and provide better customer service. RFID Global delivers IoT solutions for the data center, industrial, and healthcare industries, and will share its experiences with the RAIN Alliance, thereby contributing to the adoption of RFID technology.
“We are delighted to join the RAIN RFID Alliance and look forward to a mutually beneficial collaboration,” said Diana Hage, CEO, RFID Global. “RAIN provides an industry forum to promote the benefits of RFID technology and will drive awareness to accelerate growth and adoption in our key markets of aerospace, electronics and healthcare.”
“Since our founding in 2014, the RAIN RFID Alliance continues to grow,” said Steve Halliday, President of RAIN RFID Alliance. “I am very pleased to see RFID Global join our organization, as the firm is deeply experienced in defining, launching and growing industry solutions, and will contribute to our mission to promote RFID technology.”
