RedPrairie Corp., a leader in global supply chain technology solutions that drive business transformation, has formed a strategic marketing alliance with TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services, a provider of plastic and packaging solutions. According to the agreement, TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services and its network of more than 30 distributorships worldwide will cooperatively market RedPrairie's comprehensive suite of supply chain execution, process management and tactical optimization solutions. A primary focus of the relationship will be the use of RedPrairie's RFID-enabled solutions by TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services' clients.
John Jazwiec, RedPrairie company leader, said, "Many manufacturers and suppliers have made substantial investments in mobile assets that are critical to conducting business. Without a way to track these resources, it is relatively easy for them to get lost in transit. Our partnership with TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services gives customers the ability to track and trace mobile resources, such as returnable pallets and cases, throughout their supply chains via RFID technology."
TriEnda's/Wilbert Plastic Services' customers will place RFID tags on their returnable cases and pallets, which will be scanned at multiple touch points throughout the supply chain. As a result, companies will gain real-time visibility to their mobile resources, saving millions of dollars in annual expense.
Bob Klimko, director of marketing and new business development at TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services, said, "We are partnering with RedPrairie because of our shared expertise in many of the same industries, such as consumer goods and food and beverage. We need an RFID partner that can work with any of the tag and hardware suppliers. RedPrairie fits both of these requirements. TriEnda/Wilbert Plastic Services has benefited from partnering closely with RedPrairie on several customer opportunities and our customers benefit from their RFID consulting expertise."
