Thursday, April 23, 2009

NEW CASTLE, DE — Sky-Trax Inc. is proud to announce its newest Premier Partner Program member and Value Added Reseller (VAR), Rush Tracking Systems.

The partnership between Sky-Trax, a technology company specializing in optical technology for tracking vehicles and assets inside warehouses, and Rush Tracking Systems, an industry-leading RFID business process consulting and systems integration company, will bring revolutionary warehousing solutions to the materials handing industry. As strategic partners, Sky-Trax and Rush Tracking Systems will integrate optical positioning technologies for RFID enabled lift trucks to deliver market leading flexible, high performance tracking and positioning solutions for manufacturing, warehouse and distribution operations. The combination of RFID for load identification and optical positioning for inch-accurate, real-time positioning data opens up a world of value driving applications.

“The partnership with Rush Tracking Systems just makes sense,” said Larry Mahan, President and COO of Sky-Trax. “RFID for inventory tracking has been deployed successfully by Rush Tracking to automatically identify loads handled by lift trucks. Now when coupled with Sky-Trax optical technology for inch-accurate location tracking of both the lift truck and the load, customers are able to achieve a new level of performance and cost reduction with a dependable solution that offers automatic data collection, real-time tracking of goods and vehicles, and tremendous productivity and inventory accuracy improvements”.

“We’ve enjoyed tremendous success in the field with our VisiblEdge RFID lift truck solution, and look forward to working with Sky-Trax to provide our clients with the flexibility and performance that optical RTLS technology affords,” said Toby Rush, president and CEO of Rush Tracking Systems.
