Intermec Technologies Corp. has selected Seagull Scientific as the subcontractor to provide the label design and printing software required by Intermecs AIT-III contract with the U.S. Department of Defense.
The AIT-III contract, administered by the U.S. Army, will provide automated data collection equipment, software, systems and services to all branches of the U.S. Dept. of Defense worldwide. It is part of the U.S. Dept. of Defenses Automatic Identification Technology initiative, an important component in the departments efforts to provide asset visibility in its global logistics pipeline.
Under the terms of the five-year technology contract, Intermec will supply a line of advanced mobile computing, wireless communications and data collection systems and services. Seagull Scientific will supply BarTender, its label design and print software product, to manage the printing demands on all label printers included in the AIT-III program. Over the five years of the contract, Seagull will provide up to $2 million worth of BarTender.
After extensive evaluation, Intermec determined that BarTender met the exacting quality requirements and flexibility demanded by the AIT-III contract. In addition, we have worked with Seagull for years and found them to be a professional and highly reliable business partner, said Intermec Executive Vice President Steve Winter. First introduced in 1993, BarTender has established itself as a stable and reliable software product appropriate for a variety of industrial applications.
We think Intermecs execution of the AIT-III contract is going to be a great success and we are proud to be a part of it, said Don Ray, President of Seagull Scientific. We were most enthusiastic about participating in the bid because we knew that BarTender had the reliability and design capabilities that the applications would require. Additionally, we have the global business infrastructure to deliver the appropriate level of product support. Now we can look forward to further building upon our already strong business relationship with Intermec.
