BlueStar, the global distributor of ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, Digital Signage, and ID & Security technology solutions, has begun distributing RFID Revolution Express, an enterprise-calibre, RFID middleware platform designed specifically for the Impinj Speedway Revolution and Speedway xPortal RFID Readers. The addition of the new platform from RFID Solutions will provide BlueStar resellers with an attractive option for companies that are looking to implement RFID technology quickly and easily.
"We are excited about partnering with BlueStar to provide an easy-to-use, feature rich, RFID platform that enhances the product offerings of BlueStar's reseller partners by enabling the sale of additional hardware, software, and support services," says James Snyder, President of RFID Solutions. "The Speedway Revolution RFID reader is the first device that makes RFID technology available to the masses, not just the RFID experts. RFID Revolution Express is the software platform that brings it to life."
RFID Revolution Express builds on the technological breakthrough of RFID Revolution, which removed the need for RF engineers through a sophisticated "AutoPilot" system that adjusts the settings of RFID readers while in operation. RFID Revolution Express makes RFID technology even more accessible. Ready to go straight out of the box, the software automatically discovers Impinj Speedway Revolution RFID readers and immediately allows users to control the readers. RFID Revolution Express transmits RFID data between the RFID devices and business-level systems for a more efficient process. It also lowers the total cost of ownership for the devices by enabling users to receive immediate benefits from their RFID investment. The platform is as simple as downloading the installation program, and then users are ready to start reading RFID tags.
"RFID Revolution Express software enables BlueStar's VARs of all calibres to realise unprecedented time savings in reader programming," explains Dan Miller, RFID Program Manager at BlueStar. "With this product, an Impinj reader is capable of reading tags just minutes out of the box. It also provides a great tool to speed up the development of that VAR's application."
