Intermec Technologies and its Honours Premier Partner ZETES today jointly announced that ZETES is the first company to gain accreditation from Intermec to sell and support its market-leading RFID products on a Pan European basis.
ZETES personnel working in Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the UK have been authorised to sell Intermec RFID products after completing extensive RFID training and testing. All accredited personnel have completed three in-depth Intermec workshops: Introduction to RFID, Installing RFID Solutions, and RFID Software Development. These courses provided qualified engineers with extensive knowledge of developing scalable RFID solutions, from surveying to installation.
ZETES is the first Honours Premier Partner authorised to sell Intermec's industry-leading range of RFID products on a pan-European basis.
"Over the last few years, ZETES has built extensive know-how on the application of RFID technology in real environments, resulting in a few dozen successful projects and satisfied references," commented Alex Driesen, ZETES' vice- president, Corporate Strategy. "I'm glad that Intermec has recognised our RFID expertise by rewarding us with this first pan-European accreditation."
"Having one of our long standing Identification & Mobility suppliers bring its highly integrated RFID portfolio to the European market will help to accelerate market adoption significantly," concluded Driesen.
Ruggedised Intermec RFID products include the IF4 and IF5 fixed readers, the IP4 mobile reader and the PM4i Intelligent printer. Intermec's RFID equipment was the first to comply with the new approved European standards for RFID at UHF. Many companies worldwide have successfully implemented Intermec's RFID equipment. METRO Group, the world's third-largest retailer and RFID pioneer, is enjoying tag read-rates of more than 90 percent, as well as complete compliance with ETSI radio standards for operation in Europe.
