RFID Global Solution awarded $3.3 million national IT asset management contract with the Social Security Administration
Reston, VA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
RFID Global Solution, Inc., the leading provider of real-time, IT asset management solutions, is pleased to announce a $3.3 million contract awarded by the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) to RFID Global Solution and CodeSource, the leading defense provider of innovative solutions for parts identification, traceability and inventory control. The blanket purchase agreement (BPA) contract will expand implementation of the Visi-Trac™ RFID solution at the National Computing Center in Woodlawn, MD, to additional U.S. data centers, as well as up to 1,500 field office locations throughout the U.S. and abroad.
The multi-year agreement requires RFID Global Solution and CodeSource to extend the scope of the existing RFID solution to include tracking a wide variety of capital assets throughout the SSA enterprise. In addition, the two companies will work together to develop automated software interfaces with existing asset, maintenance and work-order management systems.
The contract permits the SSA to conduct a thorough business case analysis of their existing processes for asset management, and implement recommendations intended to increase return on investment for the U.S. Government. Furthermore, the agreement expands the existing passive RFID solution to include audit carts and active RFID sensor products, both of which significantly reduce physical audit cycle time within data centers.
“This BPA award allows the SSA tremendous freedom to implement the right technology, at the right time, and in the correct measure to ensure they continue expanding their already significant return on investment from the Visi-Trac system. RFID Global Solution is extremely proud to be part of this world-class project team, and we look forward to working with the SSA to increase efficiencies and reduce operating costs,” said Thomas Manzagol, chief operating officer, RFID Global Solution.
RFID Global Solution and CodeSource have previously collaborated to offer passive RFID products for IT asset tracking, healthcare and manufacturing to the U.S. federal government. CodeSource has significantly expanded its General Services Administration schedule to include a wide array of RFID Global Solution inventory and asset management software, services, maintenance and hardware offerings. This not only simplifies procurement for the federal government, but also offers purchasing agents a “one-stop shop” contract vehicle for the latest passive and active RFID technologies.
“We very much look forward to continuing our partnership with RFID Global Solution, to build upon the exceptional system foundation we built for the SSA last year. We look to further extend inventory automation to the SSA’s 1500 field offices. CodeSource is proud to be a partner in helping SSA realize their cost savings and efficiency goals,” stated Bob Hatley, vice president, Sales and Operations, CodeSource.
