DENVER, CO — October 1, 2018— TrackX Holdings Inc. (TSX.V:TKX) (“TrackX” or the “Company), a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based enterprise asset management solution provider, today announced the plans for deployment of its Global Asset Management for Enterprises (GAME) solution for Anheuser-Busch (NYSE: BUD). The initial implementation will be for the tracking of ¼ barrel beer kegs at their Houston, TX facility.
TrackX, in partnership with Impinj, Inc. (NASDAQ: PI), a leading provider and pioneer of RAIN RFID, and Velociti, a leader in technology deployment and support services, will implement GAME for RTI (Returnable Transport Items) with specific configurations for brewery operations. Leveraging RFID tags and a network of RFID readers and antennas at strategic points throughout the brewery operation, TrackX will capture invaluable real-time data and business intelligence related to the Anheuser-Busch keg fleet to drive efficiencies throughout the supply chain. This solution once implemented will facilitate increased visibility and utilization of kegs, streamline production planning, ensure effective keg and valve maintenance, increase quality assurance, prevent keg loss, and improve turn rates. It is anticipated that the solution will expand beyond the brewery to Anheuser Busch distribution partners and large retailers.
“We are pleased that Anheuser Busch has chosen to partner with TrackX, Impinj, and Velociti for the deployment of an enterprise asset management solution system capable of changing the way in which beer kegs have been traditionally managed,” said Tim Harvie, CEO of TrackX. “Because of the need to assure maximum keg utilization, we at TrackX are focused on utilizing best of breed technologies to more effectively manage the assets and processes that impact the overall supply chain. GAME will analyze real-time data, identify areas of improvement, and provide analytics and business intelligence resulting in increased productivity across the enterprise.”
