Mojix, a Los Angeles-based radio frequency identification and Internet of things technology company, is merging with European IoT firm CXignited. The two businesses announced their decision this week and indicated that the combined entity will operate under their respective names—Mojix and CXignited—until new information about the merger's branding is released.

The merger, the companies say, will create a global solution provider that offers the versatility required by retailers, brands and manufacturers as they automate their inventory-management processes and boost in-store customer experiences. Dan Doles will serve as the president and CEO of the combined entity. Alain Fanet, formerly CXignited's CEO, will be the chief strategic officer, and will lead the merger to develop the retail global market strategy and execution.

Mojix, founded in 2004, provides wide-area UHF RFID systems for retailers, as well as other vertical markets, such as manufacturing, health care, event security, and oil and gas. Its solutions include its STAR and STARflex RFID readers for the indoor, real-time tracking of such items as merchandise in a store, without requiring a handheld interrogator, and the ViZix IoT platform solution for real-time inventory data and in-store analytics (see The Brightest Star, Mojix Introduces STARflex RFID Reader and Mojix Unveils ViZix Sensor Network Management Platform). The company also provides handheld solutions, in addition to apps that would enable store associates or merchandising managers to locate items quickly in order to fulfill e-commerce orders, or to aid customers who are physically at a store.

Based in Paris, CXignited was previously known as Tagsys RFID. In 2016, the company was rebranded to focus on retail, and to offer hybrid solutions that would address not only inventory management but the in-store experience, to help retailers compete with online sales. The "CX" in "CXignited" derives from the words "customer experience," the company explains.

CXignited provides cloud-based solutions for retailers with its ShopCX Cloud platform. Its Unified Commercial information-intelligence software uses location data from RFID, as well as from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons and other IoT-based sensors (see Loewe Pilots Real-time Location System for Luxury Apparel, Accessories).
