“When developing our RFID system we worked closely with Transcends RIFIDI who provided us with great advice and an interface between the reader and our database. As we were new to RFID it was very helpful to work with a company that provided personal support. It was also very important for us to have a customized solution for our exact needs. With the RIFIDI interface in place we began field testing our RFID system and it worked very well. We achieved multiple tag reads at speeds far higher than a mountain biker could achieve in a mountain bike park.”

“We’ve been using Rifidi suite for a while now, and it has not only helped us a lot as an emulating tool, but it has also proved to be an easy and reliable middleware. We started off using Rifidi Emulator for our development cycles and then starting using Rifidi Edge Server. Instead of long and complicated adjustments to what we thought was our own middleware, we decided to switch to Rifidi Edge Server”.

UbiU says it expects to leverage Pramari’s software for tracking customers, clothes and jewelry for inventory, management, and sales applications. “As the Korean RFID market is growing, so is the demand for middleware in various industries,” UbiU sales manager Brian Son said in a prepared statement. “Many companies are reluctant to buy costly solutions and will find Pramari’s open-source products very attractive. Middleware will soon become a must have in every RFID system. UbiU is actively promoting Pramari’s Rifidi product and preparing sales activities.”
