NCR and The Kennedy Group to Collaborate In Marketing of NCR AIDC Software Solutions
WILLOUGHBY, Ohio, and ATLANTA – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) and The Kennedy Group announced they have completed a reseller agreement naming The Kennedy Group as a member of the NCR RealPartner program. The companies will jointly market NCR’s automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) software to The Kennedy Group’s customers in the consumer goods manufacturing and other markets throughout the United States.
NCR’s AIDC Solutions Group provides a suite of packaged applications that organize and communicate data collected through RFID, bar-code, biometrics, voice and other AIDC technologies. The NCR AIDC software suite currently includes Asset Visibility, Inventory Visibility and Retail RFID Compliance.
Headquartered in Willoughby, Ohio, The Kennedy Group provides turnkey RFID solutions that are compatible with EPCglobal standards and are fully integrated with their customers’ existing systems.
“NCR’s AIDC software accelerates the deployment of key processes, providing rapid implementation and return on investment,” said The Kennedy Group President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Kennedy. “These applications are a great complement to the RFID solutions offered by The Kennedy Group, and we look forward to working with NCR to offer and deliver them to our customers.”
“We also are working with The Kennedy Group to deploy our AIDC applications in their RFID Customer Solution Center,” said NCR AIDC Solutions Group Vice President and General Manager Donna A. Wright. “This 7,000-square-foot RFID center is a valuable resource for businesses looking to implement solutions that meet retailer mandates and EPCglobal standards, and is a great showcase for NCR’s powerful AIDC software.”
NCR’s packaged AIDC applications leverage the powerful NCR TransitionWorks™ software development platform. NCR TransitionWorks is designed to readily assimilate and manage data from various AIDC devices, including RFID-based technologies, throughout the supply chain. NCR TransitionWorks provides a rapid development environment that resolves the time-consuming and costly challenge of collecting, interpreting and moving massive amounts of data from multiple sources.
In an unrelated transaction, The Kennedy Group announced earlier this month that it has acquired the assets of the RFID labeling business from NCR Systemedia, a separate division of NCR.
