10/18/2010

XERAFY and Oil & Gas RFID Group Partnership provides RFID-in-Metal material tracking solutions for improving traceability and accountability in oil and gas industry.

Online PR News – 18-October-2010 – – Dallas, TX – XERAFY™ proudly announces a strategic partnership with the Oil & Gas RFID Group to meet the specific needs and set standards for asset management in the oil and gas industry. A new generation of RFID technology from XERAFY looks promising, that can be embedded in metal to enable them to survive the harsh oilrig environment.

“We are delivering on our promise to our oil and gas customers to solve the RFID on metal issue by permanently attaching or embedding in metal the RFID. Our RFID X-factor tags are a dependable method of asset control because they can endure the exposure to high temperatures, rough handling, and caustic chemicals that most types of identification methods cannot survive. “ Explains Dennis Khoo, CEO of XERAFY.

Frost & Sullivan reports, “RFID will be a promising technology in the oil and gas industry and is anticipated to provide opportunities for vendors in applications such as supply chain management (SCM); health, safety, and environment (HSE); and facility operations and management. The petroleum and oil gas industries are deploying RFID solutions to increase efficiency and revenue, while reducing operating costs.”

“It’s really about positioning the RFID technology as part of a solution to validate any edge processes, meaning the last mile of data driven at harsh environments, like oil rigs.” States Sam Falsafi, Oil & Gas Principal of Shipcom Wireless and Co-founder of Oil and Gas RFID Group.
