RMS Omega Technologies Acquires RFID Software Provider Capturity

RMS Omega Technologies, a systems integrator for bar-coding, RFID, mobile and wireless technology solutions, has announced the acquisition of Capturity, a division of Compu-Power and a software provider of RFID locating and tracking applications. The purchase was made final on Nov. 1, 2017.

"We're eager to introduce new RFID software and tracking solutions to the marketplace. Through the acquisition of Capturity, we've gained strong software applications and invaluable expertise," said Peter Vatenos, the company's VP of marketing and product development. "With the addition of new software, backed by a strong development and support team, we can offer our clients sound options and enhanced support, more efficiently."

Capturity develops specialized data-capture applications for the electric utilities, life sciences, logistics and manufacturing industries. The company's line of bar-code and RFID software applications include ASSETracs, an RFID- and bar-code-based software package that allows companies to track multiple types of assets across their entire organization; TAGTalk, an RFID-enabled middleware application that administers and controls RFID devices; and Vivarium Census System (VCS), an RFID- and bar-code-based software suite developed for the life-sciences industry. VCS is designed to allow animal research facilities to perform an accurate cage census within minutes.

"Over the past year, RMS Omega has seen a steady increase in demand for RFID tracking systems," said Clayton Vigent, the firm's VP of sales. "With the addition of Capturity's line of software applications, we're pleased to offer our customers more cost-effective solutions for fast and accurate RFID data collection."
