Sky-Trax Inc. is proud to announce its newest Premier Partner Program member and Value Added Reseller (VAR), AiDC Solutions of West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

The partnership between Sky-Trax, the leading provider of patented optical real-time location solutions for precision tracking of vehicles and assets inside warehouses, and AiDC Solutions, an industry leader in Auto-ID technologies and Supply Chain solutions across Europe, will bring Sky-Trax optical solutions to new territories and industries through-out the United Kingdom and Europe.  As strategic partners, Sky-Trax and AiDC Solutions look forward to presenting Sky-Trax Solutions to manufacturing and distribution industries in Europe.

“We are very excited to welcome AiDC Solutions as a Sky-Trax Premier Partner,” said Larry Mahan, President of Sky-Trax. “Their wide range of experience with business process automation, Auto-ID, and emerging data collection technologies makes them a perfect fit for our premier partner program,” Mahan continued. “Because of AiDC’s large customer network and reach, our partnership will allow for growth opportunities within the materials handling industry in the UK as well as other parts of Europe.”  As a Sky-Trax Premier Partner, AiDC Solutions is now an official distributor and carrier of Sky-Trax solutions and services.

David Myers, COO of AiDC Solutions said “The Sky-Trax product set is an innovative solution to the age-old problem of real-time inventory tracking with zero human interface operation (0HIO). This is a no scan indoor Real-Time Location System (RTLS) which can identify the position of individual pallets down to a few centimeters. We are extremely excited about adding this unique technology to our inventory management solutions”.

The Sky-Trax Premier Partner Program provides companies like AiDC Solutions the opportunity to grow, expand, and differentiate their product lines with Sky-Trax patented solutions.  This distinction positions system resellers as industry leaders in optical technology for use in materials handling, manufacturing and distribution operations. The Premier Partner program also presents Sky-Trax and its partners with global distribution channels, stronger reseller relationships and increased availability of products that are growing in demand.
