Identec Solutions and Savi Technology today jointly announced that the companies have entered a worldwide mutual reseller agreement.  Both companies have been leaders in the use of real-time wireless identification, location and sensor technologies and the multi-year agreement strengthens both companies’ sales efforts by leveraging market and geographic synergies.

Savi pioneered the ISO 18000-7 radio frequency identification (RFID) protocol used by the US Department of Defense and its allies worldwide for logistics tracking of assets and has a strong footprint within that market.  Identec has pioneered the development of Intelligent Long Range (ILR) active RFID technology in the 868 MHz and 915 MHz frequency bands that is used in the maritime, oil & gas, and industrial sectors.  The agreement helps Savi gain greater adoption in commercial markets, while giving Identec greater traction in defense opportunities.

The agreement will also help each company gain a greater presence geographically, leveraging Identec’s strong presence in Europe with Savi’s established base in the United States.

“We are excited to have established this strategic cooperation with Savi, which has been a leader in tracking and logistics solutions for the DoD and in RFID more generally. We are already a licensee of the 18000-7 technology from Savi and by building on Savi’s extensive portfolio, we will strengthen our position in an interesting market,” said Brian Robertson, CEO at Identec.

“When two market leaders come together and promote the adoption of solutions with the power to change the way businesses operate, it’s the customers who benefit,” said Bill Clark, President and CEO, Savi Technology.  “Our partnership with Identec makes it easier for organizations to experience first-hand how operational analytics dramatically improve their businesses.”
