SATO, a global leader in barcode printing, labelling, and EPC/RFID solutions, today announced its new alliance with Oracle, the worlds largest enterprise software company. SATO has become a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
Together, SATO and Oracle can provide leading RFID compliance solutions with a complete offering of consulting, services, hardware, and enterprise software.
The Oracle PartnerNetwork is a global business network of more than 14,000 companies who deliver innovative enterprise software solutions based on Oracle software. Through access to Oracles premier products, education, technical services, marketing and sales support, the Oracle PartnerNetwork provides partners with the resources they need to be successful in todays Internet economy. Oracle partners are able to offer customers leading-edge solutions backed by Oracles position as the world's largest enterprise software company. Partners who are able to demonstrate superior product knowledge, technical expertise and a commitment to doing business with Oracle qualify for the Oracle Certified Partner level.
With increasing demand for RFID compliance in the retail, Department of Defense, and manufacturing supply chains, it is critical for every organization to understand the true benefits and return-on-investment (ROI) of RFID and have access to enterprise-wide solutions satisfying those requirements. A combined SATO and Oracle offering can address most every piece of an integrated RFID solution from an RFID tag all the way to the enterprise system.
SATOs global experience and expertise of the physical layer of RFID solutions (tags, labels, printers, applicators, readers, antennae) combined with Oracles capabilities in the global enterprise software market will provide truly integrated RFID compliance solution with high customer value and return.
Inefficient, money-losing slap-and-ship applications are a temporary band aid to compliance mandates, said Vic Barczyk, SATO Internationals vice-president of Business Development. Working with Oracle will better enable us to focus on the long-term success and ROI of RFID technology.
