Technology Partnership Extends RedPrairie’s Existing RFID Data, Device,

and Process Management Capabilities to Offer Customers Industry Leading
Solutions

Waukesha, WI – RedPrairie Corporation, a leader in global supply chain
technology solutions that drive business transformation, and GlobeRanger, a
leading provider of RFID Edgeware solutions, today announced an OEM
Agreement. Under the Agreement, the partners have integrated their RFID
solutions for advanced data collection, device and process management,
enabling RedPrairie to expand its existing capabilities to provide customers
the industry’s most comprehensive RFID solutions.

Under the Agreement, RedPrairie has built data management applications on
top of GlobeRanger’s iMotion edgeware platform. This solution is tightly
integrated to RedPrairie’s DigitaLogistix® suite of RFID-enabled supply
chain execution and optimization solutions.

Mike Dempsey, Industry Strategy Leader at RedPrairie says, “Our partnership
with GlobeRanger allows us to expand our RFID product suite, giving
customers an advanced solution for RFID, barcode and sensor data and device
management. The integration was facilitated through DLx® Integrator, which
is also used for integration to business applications and host systems. This
creates a seamless package that is easy for customers to implement and
maintain.”

GlobeRanger’s workflow functionality enables the management of fixed, mobile
and wireless RF and RFID readers, providing a single unified source for edge
data. They also provide sophisticated emulation and analytics capabilities
that speed solutions development implementation.

RedPrairie is a natural fit. Both companies have advanced RFID solutions
that we integrated to create a superior offering for RedPrairie and
GlobeRanger customers.”

RedPrairie Company Leader John Jazwiec comments, “Our visionary customers
recognize RFID as a leading edge application to achieve the network-wide
visibility and control they have wanted, but couldn’t get until now. These
advanced RFID data management solutions create competitive advantage and
better responsiveness to customer needs. RedPrairie is pleased to partner
with GlobeRanger to offer customers the best of the best in RFID
technology.”
