TrackX Holdings, Impinj Partner on Enterprise Asset-Management Solutions

TrackX Holdings, a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based enterprise asset-management solution provider, has announced a strategic partnership with Impinj, a provider of RFID solutions.

TrackX, based in Denver, Colo., deploys SaaS-based solutions that use automatic identification and sensor technologies, including RFID, to manage a variety of physical assets at health-care organizations, mining and manufacturing companies, and hospitality and food-and-beverage firms. TrackX will integrate RFID data from the Impinj system into the TrackX Global Asset Management for Enterprises (GAME) platform, to gain accurate, real-time data regarding each asset's identity, location and history.

Impinj's solutions connect items using RFID technology for the purposes of identification, location and authentication. The company's Channel Partner Program is intended to help companies design, plan and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using the Impinj platform.

"TrackX customers consistently request a complete solution to business process issues related to the movement and utilization of corporate assets," said Tim Harvie, TrackX's CEO, in a prepared statement. "We believe that Impinj's long history of innovation in RAIN RFID technology for item intelligence balances nicely with TrackX's ability to deliver business intelligence to a wide variety of industries and business functions through Industrial IoT integration."

"We see customers who have adopted enterprise asset-management solutions that integrate data from the Impinj platform gain process efficiencies and make better use of resources," said Jeff Dossett, Impinj's executive of VP sales and marketing, in the prepared statement. "TrackX is a leading solution provider in this space, and we're excited to work with them to join the Impinj platform with the TrackX platform to deliver a complete enterprise asset management solution for our shared customers."
