Paxar Canada Suits Up with IDVelocity RFID Platform

TORONTO & GREENSBORO, N.C.--(CCNMatthews - Jul 19, 2005) -

Paxar Canada, a subsidiary of Paxar Corporation headquartered in the United States and IDVelocity have entered into a strategic alliance to provide end to end RFID/Auto-ID solutions. This reciprocal agreement matches the diverse RFID product offering by Paxar with the enterprise wide RFID infrastructure and process management software from IDVelocity. "With our complete line of readers, handheld devices, printer/encoders, applicators, and our RFID tag guarantee, coupled with the IDVelocity ADC platform, we can offer solutions that go well beyond RFID compliance mandates," stated Valerie Purdie Vice President & General Manager of Paxar Canada.

The strategic alliance will enable customers to apply bar code, 2D bar code, RFID, and other Automated Data Capture (ADC) technologies for business processes in manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, order processing, maintenance tracking, quality control, and gray market product identification. This alliance surpasses RFID compliance only offerings, by providing a solid foundation on which to build scalable business processes that can handle high volume and mission critical environments, all part of the High Availability feature set in IDVelocity ADC.

Terry Massey, Chief Operating Officer of IDVelocity stated, "Many companies have hesitated in implementing RFID because they view it as pure profit erosion. The combination of Paxar's product line and IDVelocity ADC, which integrates easily with a host of back office systems, supplier, and customer facing applications, will eliminate their concerns. Companies will be able to see how they can increase operational efficiencies, gain competitive advantage, and increase as well as protect revenue streams in a straight forward predictable manner."
