RFID Global Solution, Inc. is a U.S. technology company headquartered in Reston, Virginia. RFID Global provides asset management software and services for the industrial IoT market. Visi-Trac, the company's software product, is a data analytics application which uses real-time location information from RFID, sensors and GPS devices.

History[edit]

RFID Global Solution (founded in 2004 in Rogers, Arkansas) was established to provide RFID systems to the retail and defense industries.[1] In 2005-07, the firm developed RFID systems for Northrop Grumman Shipyards, the U.S. Army, and Boeing[2] and was recognized with a Boeing Silver Eagle Award for supply chain innovation.

In 2008, the company was selected as an RFID provider by the U.S. Department of Defense[3] and developed asset tracking systems for the U.S. Marines Corps,[4] Bode Technology (now LabCorp)[5] and Boeing supplier Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing.[6] In 2009, former IBM executive Diana Hage was hired as chief executive officer[7] and in 2011, RFID Global received $2.5 million in funding from Outcome Capital.[8]

In 2011-13, the firm was awarded IT asset management contracts with Cisco Systems[9] and the Social Security Administration (SSA).[10] The Cisco project won "Best Implementation of the Year" at the 2012 RFID Journal Awards.[11] In 2013-15, the firm was selected by DirecTV (now AT&T) to implement a broadcast asset management system[12] and by IBM to design and deploy an RFID baggage tracking system for Delta Airlines. RFID Global was awarded a four-year DARPA contract on electronics authentication with Northrop Grumman.[13][14]

In 2016, CSRA and RFID Global were awarded a 5-year contract by the U.S. Army.[15] The firm's Visi-Trac software was granted a U.S. DoD Certificate of Networthiness by the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM).[16] In 2017, the Delta Air Lines' baggage tracking project won "Best Implementation of the Year" at the RFID Journal Awards.[17]

Awards and Recognition[edit]

RFID Global was recognized by Inc. Magazine three consecutive years, 2012-2014, on its Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing U.S. Private Companies.[18] In 2013, RFID Global won SmartCEO's Technology Innovator award and was selected a Virginia Fantastic 50 company by the VA Chamber of Commerce.[19] In 2017, in "RFID Market: Global Forecast to 2023", RFID Global received a 'very good' rating on breadth of product offerings and features in a review of the RFID competitive landscape.[20]
