Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Tagit Solutions, a leading software solution provider for equipment and IP tracking, is partnering with Omni-ID, the world market and technology leader in on- and off-metal RFID tags, to provide comprehensive, location-based asset life cycle management solutions for engineering facilities such as laboratories and clean rooms, semiconductor fabrication and sub-fab environments, high-tech assembly and manufacturing lines.
Through the partnership, Tagit and Omni-ID are bringing together the two main components necessary for successful deployments in engineering facilities: RFID tags designed for the unique conditions found in such environment, and software specifically designed to support the unique business processes and asset management needs of various engineering facilities.
“In recent years, RFID solutions for tracking fixed assets and small tools have proliferated across many verticals,” says, Rajiv Anand, VP of Engineering at Tagit Solutions. “However, issues such as multipath reflection, electromagnetic interference, extreme temperatures, and corrosive chemicals have made it challenging to achieve deterministic results and measurable ROI from deployments in engineering facilities. Omni-ID’s continuous innovation and ability to quickly deliver new form-factors—such as its UltraThin™ metal mount Flex tags or long range Pipe tags—without compromising quality, readability, and range will help Tagit to better address many of the unique environmental challenges faced by our customers.”
For Omni-ID, the partnership with Tagit will increase its speed to market in this unique industry segment with a complete and cost effective end-to-end customer solution. Effective asset management in engineering facilities often includes specific needs such as calibration management, asset reservation, asset classification counterfeit protection, kitting, and emergency evacuation. Today, most of these processes typically reside in disparate IT systems or spreadsheets, making it difficult for lab administrators to efficiently manage fixed and non-capital assets. Even after deploying an RFID solution and addressing any environmental issues, many companies end up spending millions of additional dollars in developing a new solution to support their unique processes and needs.
“Tagit’s extensive domain expertise in engineering laboratories, semiconductor fabrication units, and other high-tech environments has enabled them to understand the underlying business processes and build the relevant workflows into their software, which is something you don’t get with generic, one-size-fits all asset tracking solutions,” said George Reynolds, VP of Sales at Omni-ID. “With software designed from the ground-up to meet their unique needs, Omni-ID customers will be able to accelerate solution deployment, reduce implementation and customization costs, and ultimately achieve a faster and stronger ROI.”
The partnership between Tagit Solutions and Omni-ID will include both joint marketing and joint engineering efforts. “In the coming months, Tagit and Omni-ID will roll out joint marketing campaigns targeting the high-tech and semiconductor verticals,” says Sandee Mukherjee, VP Business Development at Tagit Solutions, “Our engineering teams will work together with customers to develop specialized solutions for tool component utilization monitoring, equipment configuration management, process deviations in assembly lines, IP protection, and other needs. This partnership will propel sensor-based operational intelligence in high-tech facilities to an entirely new level.”
Tagit Solutions Inc. offers software solutions for automating business processes in engineering labs, semiconductor fabs, and high-tech manufacturing facilities based on identity, location, environment conditions, and ownership of equipment consumables, and people. tagUE™, the company’s next generation enterprise visibility software, delivers high impact business results that include substantial expense reduction, ISO and OSHA compliance, intellectual property protection, emergency evacuation, improved internal controls on financial reporting (ICFR), and overall productivity gains.
