Xterprise Announces Sam's Club Pallet Tagging Service, the Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Source Tagging Solution in the Industry

Expands Best-of-Breed Suite of Source Tagging Solutions With a "Software-as-a-Service" Offering Enabling Suppliers to Rapidly and Flexibly Respond to Retailer Requirements

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 11, 2008) - Xterprise Incorporated, the leading global supplier of Solutions for the High Definition Enterprise™ and a Gold-Certified Microsoft™ ISV partner, announced today it has created a "Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)" edition of its Xterprise Automated RFID Module (XARM™) specifically targeted at retail suppliers required to meet the new Sam's Club pallet tagging requirement. The XARM™ 5000 (On-Demand) solution will utilize a hosted application and web technology, enabling remote RFID label printing from a simple web browser vs. an application terminal.

The XARM 5000 solution, like the rest of the Xterprise source tagging suite, is turnkey and includes: user management and access control, creation and management of retail shipment destinations, automated generation of sequential serial numbers, printer management, EPC RFID encoding for each SKU being tagged, high quality RFID label selection for maximum read rates in the retail environments, full support of the solution under their tiered support plans. At the heart of the solution is a hosted application server that users, with a web browser, will be able to log in and generate RFID label print jobs. The solution includes two configurable options for label printing; either printed locally on printer(s) installed at the customer site, or generated at Xterprise who will overnight ship the labels to the customer site. The XARM 5000 solution is built on the latest RFID platform technology from Microsoft, BizTalk Server 2006 R2, and will include RFID printer technology from Zebra Technology.

"With the increased demand for RFID labeled pallets to support Sam's Club RFID initiatives, this SaaS offering is an excellent option for those suppliers needing to get up and running quickly, but are sensitive to TCO," said Doug Wallace, Chief Operating Officer at Xterprise. "The solution provides an easy upgrade path for customers, as broader requirements continue to move toward case level tagging, and it supports our AnalytiX business intelligence application which assists retail suppliers to better manage and measure promotions execution in retail environments."
