TrackX, Quest Solution Partner to Accelerate Asset-Tracking Implementations

Quest Solution, a specialty systems integrator focused on field and supply chain mobility, has announced its partnership with TrackX, a provider of RFID-enabled asset-tracking and supply chain management solutions.

Quest focuses on the design, deployment and support of fully integrated enterprise mobile solutions. The core markets serviced by Quest include retail, distribution, manufacturing, health care and logistics, for a customer base that includes Apple, Bridgestone/Firestone, Safeway, Sherwin Williams, Ingersoll Rand, Cardinal Health, Penske Logistics, Delta Faucets, Tractor Supply, McKesson and AmerisourceBergen.

"The demand for cloud-based, enterprise scalable asset tracking and inventory management solutions is increasing at a rapid rate. Through our TrackX partnership, Quest is able to expand its offering with solutions to address this demand and deliver significant value to our customers," said George Zicman, Quest Solution's senior VP of sales, in a prepared statement. "TrackX will expand upon its implementation capacity and be in a position to accelerate deployments across a growing number of Fortune 500 customers by tapping into the resources and capability provided by Quest Solution."

Tim Harvie, TrackX's president and CEO, added in the statement that "with thousands of customers and more than 20 years of experience in the delivery of auto-id and mobility solutions, Quest has the expertise and geographical coverage to support the delivery of TrackX solutions across a growing customer base in Canada and the US. This mutually beneficial partnership provides a strong catalyst for TrackX revenue growth moving forward."

TrackX's AssetTrack platform incorporates workflow processing, event management and powerful analytics to deliver solutions across a growing number of industries. Currently, those solutions include yard and distribution center management, mobile inventory management, returnable asset management, high-value asset tracking and manufacturing work-in-process tracking. While the Internet of Things is reshaping the ways in which humans interact with devices, Quest Solution and TrackX report, the partnership between the companies represents the next wave of solutions within the Industrial Internet of Things in which man-to machine and machine-to-machine interaction is occurring on a significantly larger global scale.

At last week's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, held in Orlando, Fla., the two companies co-presented TrackX's entire suite of supply chain management solutions, including Returnable/Reusable Assets, Yard Management, High Value Asset Tracking, Inventory Management and Manufacturing Process Tracking.

"This year's event was the most well attended I've ever seen and the participation at the Quest-TrackX booth was unprecedented," Harvie said in a statement. "It was a validation that the industry is truly demanding scalable, enterprise solutions for integrated asset tracking and inventory management within the cloud."
