A2B Tracking Solutions will receive Rhode Island’s top Business Excellence Award (small company category) from Providence Business News during the 11th Annual Business Excellence Awards ceremony on November 17th.

A2B Tracking is the foremost US Department of Defense (DoD) IUID (item unique identification) program partner and a leading provider of turn-key tracking solutions. When DoD mandated IUID and serialized item tracking methodology in 2004, A2B developed UID Comply!® software, and later UC! Web™ cloud-based software, to support the marking, registering and data management of the military’s 100 million assets. The purpose of IUID is to ensure that items owned by DoD are accounted for throughout their lifecycle. The payoff of this accountability is more efficient and reliable delivery of weaponry to the warfighter and savings in defense spending estimated at $3-5 billion annually.

A2B has won contracts in excess of $100 million within the past three years. Last month the company was honored at a Whiteman AFB ceremony to commemorate the one millionth item to be marked and scanned under the Air Force IUID Part Marking Program. A2B Tracking is marking 2.1 million legacy equipment items used to support day-to-day operations at every Air Force base (230) world-wide. Nearly all labels and plates required for the part marking effort are manufactured by A2B and deployed to appropriate sites. A2B’s newest contract, awarded earlier this year, is for the prototype development of a Nuclear Enterprise Tracking System (NETS).

“We are extremely honored to receive this award from PBN,” said A2B President Peter Collins. “Rhode Island has a proud defense heritage. We like to think of A2B as helping to write the latest chapter. We also believe that property and equipment accountability within the military will usher in a whole new era of efficiency through item tracking in industry and healthcare.”

Since it was founded in 1994, A2B has lead the bar code industry movement into mobile computing, developing a state-of-the-art mobile tracking system for United Parcel Service (UPS). Principals of A2B include founders of the bar code industry who have spearheaded innovations in applications for 50 years.
