Stratum Global, a leading RFID solution provider, today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor. This partnership marks the foundation for the RFID-NET Partner Solution Program, as part of this program Stratum Global’s TagNet® RFID solution will be distributed through Ingram Micro’s Nimax division, a leading distributor of AIDC, RFID and POS solutions. The two companies acknowledge the significant global potential for RFID implementations and it is this shared belief that facilitated this partnership.
The RFID-NET Partner Solution Program will include Stratum Global’s TagNet® RFID solution suite in its portfolio of technology products. With an open architecture, TagNet® is a scalable, platform agnostic, release focused RFID software solution suite. In its second release, TagNet now offers full multilingual capability, supports object networks and includes specialized modules for advanced features like RFID enabled lift trucks.

As part of the RFID-NET Partner Solution Program, Ingram Micro will provide hardware and software certification for resellers in tandem with Stratum Global. These partners will gather hands on experience both in the lab and in the field – as implementation experts offer mentoring services during the training process.
“The distribution agreement with Ingram Micro is a significant benchmark for Stratum Global,” said Jim LaPalermo, vice president – business development, Stratum Global. “Ingram Micro continues to validate TagNet® and places our solution expertise at the forefront of the global technology marketplace - solidifying our mutual objectives to advance RFID into the mainstream.
