Tagistics will include SATOs RFID Printers as standard equipment for their RFID Central solution, while SATO will market RFID Central worldwide.
Said Herbert P Goertz, CEO of Tagistics: SATO is the perfect fit for Tagistics. In our tests, their printers outperformed the competition. Plus, they are a leader with a global presence in the RFID market, which means we can deploy SATO products anywhere in the world at our customers request. And by standardizing our RFID Central solution with SATO printers, we dramatically reduce our support costs.
SATO, a leader in industrial label printing solutions, has a major share of the worlds print engines used in automated print-and-apply solutions today. It was the first company to introduce a complete, multi-protocol EPC-compliant UHF RFID Solutions to the industry. According to Vic Barczyk, SATO Internationals Vice-President of RFID Business Development, SATOs business is based on solutions designed to resolve customers problems. Tagistics RFID Central is a truly unique offering that dramatically reduces the cost of retailers mandate compliance, and streamlines the supply chain for immediate savings. This makes it an affordable solution for our customers.
Tagistics President Chris J Terry related how, as we evaluated the various options for RFID printing, we decided that we needed a global partner that we could deploy with today, throughout China, the US, and Europe. We wanted a partner, not just a vendor. SATO immediately saw the value in our RFID Central solution and a win-win collaboration was born. The combined partnership of SATO and Tagistics can now offer the most cost effective RFID solutions to the worlds largest markets not next month or next weekbut now.
RFID Central will be presented live at the 2005 China RFID Forum on Beijing China from April 2628 at the Beijing International Conference Center.
