Xerafy Issues End of Life Notification for Bric and Pico Wedge RFID Tags, Joins 2018 Accelerating Entrepreneurs Program

Xerafy has announced that it has planned an End of Life (EOL) for its Bric and Pico Wedge RFID tags. Designed to be mounted on or embedded in concrete for construction and building materials, the Bric tag is suitable for extreme RFID applications. The Pico Wedge, meanwhile, is designed to protect the chip, and to facilitate quick embedding of metal RFID tags in industrial applications.

The company will continue to sell these products for up to six months after the EOL notice. The two products will be available on a case-by-case basis for qualified opportunities of significant volume.

To minimize inconvenience, Xerafy plans to work with customers to provide any necessary assistance. Those who require further information may contact a Xerafy sales representative or email sales@xerafy.com for more information or advice on alternative RFID tag solutions.

In addition, the company has announced that its founder and CEO, Dennis Khoo, has been selected to take part in the Ernst & Young (EY) Accelerating Entrepreneurs program, which is designed to support innovative companies through the journey toward becoming global market leaders.

Dennis Khoo
Khoo is among 30 entrepreneurs taking part in the program. According to EY, participants were selected based on their potential to grow globally, solve real-world problems and deliver innovative solutions. The program will nurture businesses and provide them with practices and support for growth.

"I am looking forward to experience the Accelerating Entrepreneurs program in Amsterdam and meet the game-changing cohort of high-growth entrepreneurs from 15 countries around the world," Khoo said in a prepared statement. "EY has recognized Xerafy's unique contributions to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence, as our technology enables automated data capture in the harshest industrial environments. The disruption is nowhere clearer than in the healthcare market, where our automated management system for surgical instruments comes in support of increased compliance, patient safety and operating efficiency in the hospital workflow."
