A2B Tracking Earns Zebra Technologies Software Certification

A2B Tracking Solutions has announced the successful certification of Zebra Technologies' Software Validation Program for PartnerConnect independent software vendors (ISVs). Zebra's solution laboratory has certified A2B Tracking's cloud-based software against a battery of tests, the company reports, in order to ensure that it can operate seamlessly with Zebra's RFD 8500 for RFID and bar-code asset tracking.

A2B Tracking software leverages smartphones or Zebra mobile computers to connect to the RFD 8500 via a Bluetooth connection, while accessing A2B Tracking software to manage such asset-tracking features as asset location, check-in, checkout and cycle counts. A2B Tracking's proprietary Pro-Locate feature leverages RFID and a smartphone to efficiently search entire facilities for a particular asset.

"Our software has been optimized to perform RFID asset tracking using smartphones connected to the cloud," said Darryl Layne, the company's CTO, in a prepared statement. "We're proud to have achieved the Zebra Validated designation with the innovative RFD 8500 from Zebra that turns any mobile computer into a powerful RFID reader. This combination now enables affordable RFID tracking for virtually any organization, small or large."
