Governor Carcieri Visits A2B Tracking Solutions, Inc.
PORTSMOUTH, RI (November 30, 2007) – Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri recently visited the Portsmouth offices of A2B Tracking Solutions Inc. Arranged by the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC), the governor’s visit spotlighted A2B as a Rhode Island business that drive the state’s growing economy by making innovation a priority.
A2B, a U.S. leader in software for bar code tracking systems in organizations such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and United Parcel Service (UPS), aims to make life easier for business and government. The company found early success in 1994 with the development of label-generating software for retail giants K-Mart and Wal-Mart.
Since 1994 A2B Tracking Solutions has become a leader in moving the bar code industry into mobile computing. To date, the company has completed more than 2,000 tracking installations around the world. Most recent efforts have focused on supporting the Department of Defense (DoD) unique identification (UID) mandate. This law requires all DoD owned property, located at military installations and DoD contractors around the world, and all newly acquired property, to be labeled with a unique bar code and the information to be stored in a central UID Registry maintained by the military.
One of A2B's more exciting software systems helps the Department of Defense mark and report all their assets and personal property (including assets in the possession of contractors) with a unique serialized identification number that complies with the DoD's UID policy. UID Comply!® is a complete UID data management system that marks, prints and reads all UID compliant constructs and formats, stores the information and reports on government items under contract or in inventory.
"Rhode Island has many reasons to be proud. Chief among them is the impressive list of innovative companies such as A2B that make their home in Rhode Island," Carcieri said.
