OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Jan. 23, 2014) – PiiComm Inc. (www.piicomm.ca) Canada’s #1 Managed Mobility Services (MMS) provider and integration partner for NeWave Sensor Solutions (www.newavesensors.com), the world’s leading innovator in item-level RFID tracking technologies, is pleased to announce the Canadian introduction of the world’s most innovative automated inventory management system for tracking valuable medical supplies in hospitals and clinics.
Shawn Sicard, PiiComm’s CEO and Founder said, “NeWave Sensor Solutions has overcome one of the biggest hurdles to enterprise adoption of item-level RFID tracking by eliminating the requirement to tag individual items. The labour cost to place tags on individual items in some cases, nullifies the business justification to deploy RFID for high volume healthcare supplies, even though the benefits are indisputable. NeWave has taken the standard deployment model and stood it on its head to achieve a much more cost-effective approach.”
Steven Birrell, Managing Partner of Avenue RFID Inc. whom is NeWave’s representative in Canada commented, “Our combined corporate resources are able to deliver fully-automated, remote, inventory management systems to organizations that own them or to those who supply them. Vendor-managed, shelf-space solutions are now available to virtually any organization, not just the Fortune 100 companies of the world. Our solutions extend outside of the enterprise four walls to manage mobile inventories located in vehicles. This technology offers Canadian companies options to become more competitive and efficient while offering better service to customers.”
