Savi and ODIN to Deliver Industry's Most Comprehensive RFID Software Platform

Unified Passive and Active RFID Solution Enhances Tracking and Management of Items, Assets, and Containers

(PRWEB) April 15, 2010 -- Savi and ODIN, two of the world's leading providers of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) solutions, today announced that they are partnering to offer the industry's first and most comprehensive software platform leveraging both passive and active RFID technologies. The fully integrated solution will broaden and enrich customers' ability to track and manage in real-time their items, supply chain assets and transport conveyances such as containers and vehicles. The announcement was made here today at the opening of the annual RFID Journal Live! conference.

The companies have joined forces to develop the latest generation of RFID software that will exploit the full range of RFID and related Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technologies. The solution is architected to benefit customers in the Aerospace and Defense, Government, Manufacturing, Healthcare and IT Services industries. Drawing on the deep experience of Lockheed Martin's [NYSE: LMT Savi in active, battery-powered RFID and ODIN's expertise in passive RFID, the solution will enhance supply chain performance, efficiency and security within the four walls of facilities as well as throughout extended supply chains. The two companies have a combined global experience on every continent encompassing more than 500 successful RFID projects.

"With ODIN's depth of experience with passive RFID and Savi's two decades of experience with active RFID, together we can bring the best of both worlds to improve the visibility of all kinds of supply chain assets and asset management performance, " said David Stephens, CEO of Savi Technology.

"With Savi and ODIN seamlessly integrating our respective solutions, we can bring a single off-the-shelf solution with near perfect accuracy," said Patrick J. Sweeney II, founder of ODIN.

Both Stephens and Sweeney emphasized that many of their existing clients in Aerospace, Defense and Healthcare have asked for a unified active-passive RFID software platform for multiple uses, ranging from tool tracking to work-in-process.

The Savi-ODIN offering will combine Savi's active RFID SmartChain software suite and ODIN's EasyEdge™ for passive RFID devices to automate the collection of passive and active RFID data onto a single platform. Unlike other componentized solutions requiring complex hardware and software integration, the SmartChain suite will be available with seamless modules that significantly reduce the time, effort and costs of implementing and utilizing software powered with real-time RFID information.

Further, SmartChain will be able to better track and manage IT assets and medical supplies, as well as help improve the performance of complex pick-and-pack and kitting functions. At the same time, SmartChain will function as a system of record that provides status alerts and detailed reports on passive RFID-tagged items such as laptops, medical equipment and kits consisting of manufactured parts. Automating the management of these assets with the Savi-ODIN module will help reduce asset shrinkage, as well as costs associated with manual tracking of assets.
