Portsmouth, RI (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
A2B Tracking Solutions Inc, the leading provider of unique identification (UID) compliance products and services for US Department of Defense (DoD) contractors and military installations has added V-viz Ltd, of Warwickshire, UK, as a Reseller Partner in the UK and European markets. The North American Treaty Organization (NATO) Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4107, Mutual Acceptance of Government Quality Assurance and Usage of the Allied Quality Assurance Publications, calls for the regulation of government contracts for acquisition from foreign governments, such as UID as mandated by the US DoD.
In making the announcement A2B's UID Business Development Sales Engineer Will Sniffen says, "V-viz has the expertise to address the emerging global identification standard (2D Data Matrix and serialized item marking). Their prior experience with best data-management practices, required for any bar code-based system, coupled with their extensive knowledge of verification and direct part marking (DPM) for harsh environment products, make them a logical choice to resell UID Comply!® in Ireland, the UK and EU countries."
V-viz provides product lifetime solutions to manufacturers across all industries. Their particular expertise is in the field of high speed inline machine vision inspection and 2D Data Matrix™ readers and verifiers. The UID mandate, driven by MIL-STD 130M, specifies stringent requirements for verification of UID Data Matrix labels, whether polyester, DPM or laser etch.
UID is mandated landmark policy by the DoD requiring all assets and personal property owned by the DoD, including assets in the possession of contractors and legacy items at military installations, to be marked with a unique serialized identification number and then registered in accordance with MIL STD 130. UID is supported by NATO as an enabler in the areas of product life-cycle support and configuration management and in logistics systems concerned with financial and configuration applications and asset tracking.
