KonaWare and IntelliMark Develop Mobile RFID Solutions

Monday 7 February 2005 20:56 CET | News

KonaWare, a provider of logistics and motor freight applications on mobile devices, and IntelliMark, a national provider of technology integration and support, are developing solutions for hand-held RFID interrogators in supply chain applications.

KonaWares Mobile T&L Suite combined with IntelliMarks integration and RFID expertise will provide mobile RFID solutions to transportation and logistics providers. Most RFID deployments use fixed readers wired into the warehouse. KonaWare and IntelliMark believe that mobile RFID solutions incorporating hand-held computers, RFID interrogators, and control software will provide superior ROI over fixed systems, said Jim DiSanto, CEO at KonaWare. KonaWares applications extend the business process and data from supply chain systems to mobile RFID devices, even without 100% wireless coverage. Instead of taking the freight or inventory to the RFID reader, supply chain operators will simply take the reader to the inventory. Mobile RFID systems will also complement fixed portal systems for exception handling. Our relationship with KonaWare enables IntelliMark to offer more options to clients leveraging RFID technology, said Eric Heil, vice president of IntelliMark. KonaWare is one of the first companies to push an RFID software platform onto hand helds with the ability to collect and save data when the device is out of range of its wireless network and automatically synchronize the data when back in range. This technology provides the flexibility of using both fixed and mobile readers.
