Xterprise Awarded Third Contract With Schoeller Arca Systems for Reusable Transport Item (RTI) Source Tagging

Expanding World's Largest Embedded RFID Tags Pallet Project for a Mutual Client

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Xterprise Incorporated, the leading global supplier of Solutions for the High Definition Enterprise ™ and a Gold-Certified Microsoft ™ ISV partner, announced today it has been awarded its third contract with Schoeller Arca Systems (SAS) (http://www.schoellerarcasystems.com) for its Automated RFID Module (XARM™) 6000 high volume source tagging solution. The XARM™ 6000 solution will be used in-line with manufacturing at SAS to embed RFID tags into their highly innovative resin-based pallets and returnable transport items (RTIs). With this contract, SAS will have six manufacturing lines doubling the capacity of previously installed application at their U.S. plant in Michigan.

Schoeller Arca Systems is convinced of the value of RFID in supply chain logistics and they produce millions of pallets, totes and other RTIs with integrated RFID tags. In addition to RFID capabilities, the SAS pallets and RTIs meet key European Union and United States mandated pedigree, safety, and waste requirements.

"Our innovative RTIs have become the standard for several logistics service providers, consumer packaged goods manufacturers and pallet pooling organizations," said Ludo Gielen, Product Manager at Schoeller Arca Systems. "These SmartCarriers® have revolutionized the shipping industry by providing a transport platform that contains both products and information."

"SAS has determined that by embedding RFID tags into the RTIs and managing them with the Xterprise suite of Solutions for the High Definition Enterprise™, they have created a unique and highly differentiated RTI product offering," said Doug Wallace, COO of Xterprise. "We have worked closely with the SAS team to insure the highest quality of RFID enabled RTI product for our mutual client, a major manufacturer of plastic pallets."

The Xterprise XARM application includes encodes and quality management components that have been deemed best-in-class for RTI RFID source tagging. The solution is built using the latest technology from Microsoft which offers flexibility, scalability and dependability at the lowest total cost of ownership.
