Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2010
RFID4U®, announced that it has reached a partnership agreement with Alien Technology®'s RFID Solutions Center, Dayton, OH to resell their respective RFID training and certification courses. This agreement will allow either company to respond to increased training needs and also provides better geographical coverage to both. Through the arrangement, customers of RFID4U and the RFID Solutions Center will be able to more easily choose locations and dates convenient to them.
"Offering jointly the Alien RFID Solution Center and RFID4U training programs are a natural fit," said Sanjiv Dua, CEO of RFID4U. "By increasing the geographic availability of our certification programs, customers will have more locations and dates to choose from. With budget constraints the way they are in this economy, the increased availability saves our customers money and allows projects to move forward sooner." Both companies have agreed to expand their training offerings as part of a multi-phase and long term cooperation plan.
The availability of courses in Dayton Ohio is a strategic move that opens the East Coast and Midwest markets to RFID4U as well as placing it within driving distance of 80% of RFID-focused companies in the United States. The Dayton area has increasingly become a hub for RFID technology and innovation, making it a logical expansion location. Alien benefits from the new facility as well as RFID4U's established training locations in San Jose, CA, Washington DC, Las Vegas.
According to Industry Week, the RFID market is expected to reach $5.5 B in 2010 and grow to $8.25 B in 2014. Dua believes that much of this growth will be due to the technology training, processes, and best practices maturing over this time.
The agreement went into effect March 6th, 2010. Details of the financial aspects of the agreement have not been released.
