Fluensee Teams Up With Percept to Offer Independent Testing of RFID Solutions

Percept Provides Real-World Examination, Analysis and Recommendations for Customers Evaluating RFID Solutions

ENGLEWOOD, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 17, 2006 -- RFID-enabled asset management provider, Fluensee, Inc., today announced that it has signed an agreement with Percept Technology Labs, a Boulder, Colo.-based leading product test and consulting company. The agreement will allow Fluensee to leverage Percept's product testing facilities along with its independent analysis and consulting services to help customers gain knowledge of the functional capabilities and limitations of RFID technologies within their operating environments under real-world environmental conditions.

"Percept further extends our service offering and improves upon our ability to deliver RFID-enabled solutions to our customers," said Tim Harvie, president and chief executive officer, Fluensee, Inc. "The company's testing services complement the existing physical and structural testing of RFID tags, antennas, readers and other related hardware. By using a customer simulated environment, Percept can analyze specific operating characteristics and provide recommendations in a condensed timeframe. This eliminates much of the uncertainty buyers have today and will help accelerate the adoption of RFID-enabled solutions delivering upon the promise to help businesses become more efficient and profitable."

Under the agreement, Percept and Fluensee will benefit from each other's products and services by helping joint customers find solutions that are right for them. Percept's independent testing services for Fluensee will include failure analysis, competitive analysis and testing, functional and reliability testing, along with detailed results and recommendations to help solve any issues discovered. Once the testing results are complete, Fluensee's RFID engineers can work side-by-side with Percept's engineers to develop successful, cost-effective solutions to address the specific needs of the customer.

"We are extremely pleased to be selected by Fluensee as the testing partner for their industry-leading RFID products," said John Mozeliak, president and chief operating officer, Percept Technology Labs. "Our team has extensive experience in managing and executing testing and analysis for small, medium and large companies looking to implement new products and systems in the marketplace. Our expertise enables Fluensee to implement their solution suite with confidence and success as we test and prove product functionality and performance through our rigorous testing methodologies."

With product testing and resolution being an important part of the Fluensee solution suite, Fluensee also recently entered in a relationship with the Sun Advanced Product Testing Lab in Longmont, Colo. to offer a comprehensive array of physical durability testing for hardware and technology, inclusive of extreme heat, cold, humidity, altitude, shock and vibration.

Fluensee's suite of software includes: Fluensee AssetTrack™, a comprehensive solution for tracking and managing physical assets and inventory; Fluensee Yard™, Dock™ and Fleet™, which are specifically designed for effectively managing transportation and distribution environments; and Fluensee DataCenter™ which was developed to better track assets in data centers and IT facilities.
