CaptureTech Delivers "Powered by Impinj" RFID Solutions in Europe

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Leading UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) tag chip and reader supplier Impinj, Inc. today announced that automatic identification specialist CaptureTech is successfully deploying the company's products in custom RFID solutions in Europe.

CaptureTech's 'Powered by Impinj' solutions address the growing demand from European manufacturing, retail and distribution companies for proven RFID systems that significantly improve logistics and asset tracking operations. CaptureTech's solutions integrate Impinj's UHF Gen 2 Speedway® readers and Monza™ tag chips with third-party data management software.

The following deployments describe how some companies leverage CaptureTech's 'Powered by Impinj' solutions:

--  Boekhandels Groep Nederland (BGN), the Netherlands' largest bookseller
    with 42 stores, speeds inventory tasks with a CaptureTech item-level RFID
    solution using Impinj Monza-powered tags and Impinj Speedway readers. BGN
    tags every book in their central warehouse then tracks the books to stores.
    The in-store RFID system captures and manages inventory data such as book
    location and out of stock conditions. Results of ROI analysis at one RFID-
    enabled "smart store" show a greater than 12 percent increase in sales as
    well as a decrease in inventory costs and inventory labor hours.
--  Rolec, one of Holland's leading distributors of primary school
    educational materials, improves asset and order accuracy with a CaptureTech
    RFID solution utilizing Impinj Speedway readers to track plastic-wrapped
    pallets of goods at busy distribution centers. The solution ensures that
    100% of school shipments match product orders.

"The European supply chain is rapidly becoming RFID-enabled," said Louis Bianchin, senior RFID analyst and program manager for VDC. "The collaboration between Impinj and CaptureTech, which marries leading RFID technology with extensive deployment expertise and deep knowledge of local requirements, is key to successful and widespread RFID adoption in the region."
