Honors NOVEXX, Omni-ID & Silent Partner Technologies for Outstanding Innovation in Automatic Identification
Case Study Competition Winners Represent Leaders in AIDC, IoT and RFID
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania |October 20, 2016 – AIM, the trusted worldwide industry
association for the automatic identification industry, providing unbiased
information, educational resources and standards to providers and users of
these technologies for nearly half a century, announced today the winners of
its 2016 Case Study Competition. The Class of 2016 includes industry leaders NOVEXX Solutions, Omni-ID and Silent
Presented annually by AIM, the Case Study Competition recognizes those who have
developed and delivered compelling solutions that contribute to the growth and advancement
of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) through innovation and technologies
which provide benefits that decrease risk, increase the demand and accelerate
the advancement and adoption of automatic identification around the world.
NOVEXX Solutions was chosen as the top entry in the Automatic Identification & Data Capture
(AIDC) category for their submission Trolley Identification,
in which labeling hardware from NOVEXX, adjusted from their partner Top Label printers BV using a unique approach with new label material, offered an innovative
labeling solution to the largest retailer in the Netherlands. Thanks to the combination of these new
technologies, the retailer now has a much cleaner and HACCP compliant solution
for mesh trolley identification in the distribution centers.
Taking the top prize in the new Internet of Things (IoT)
category was Omni-ID for their Build Book Application, designed for Detroit, a subsidiary
of Daimler Trucks North America, who sought to realize greater production
efficiency by diversifying manufacturing lines to handle a greater variety of
product types. Using the ProVIEW System
featuring the revolutionary View 10 (V10) tag, Detroit now relies on a single tag
which downloads specific information based on the type of engine on each Automated
Guide Vehicle (AGV) moving through production.
Partner Technologies received this year’s honors in the Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID) category for South Metro Fire Rescue
Authority, which detailed the inventory management challenges South
Metro faced in their warehouse and 17 EMS stations serving the Centennial,
Colorado area. With the help of Silent
Partner Technologies’ IntelliView product which included a combination of
Passive GEN2 and Active RFID technologies, South Metro saw both medical
expirations and excess inventory reduced.
Following the project’s completion, ambulances left stations with the
correct equipment and fresh medicine and overhead was reduced by 50%.
AIM will recognize and honor each of the 2016 winners
during an exclusive awards event at AIM Summit 2017,
next March 13th in Stuttgart, Germany, where winners will present
