MILWAUKEE and ATHENS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 18, 2002
Contribution supports burgeoning AIDC research at several
TEKLYNX(R) International, the world's leading developer of software products for the automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) marketplace, is donating $15,000 of software to educational attendees of the 16th annual Automatic Identification and Data Capture Technical Institute (AIDCTI) being held from July 21st through the 26th at Ohio University. The donation includes one TEKLYNX CODESOFT(R) label design software 25-user network for Ohio University and 30 full-function single user copies that are being given to educator attendees to support AIDC research at other institutions, including:
East Carolina University
Eastern Kentucky University
Gateway Tech Institute
Georgia Southern University
Governors State University
Mississippi Valley State University
Northern Illinois University
Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru
RIT Research Corporation
Robert Morris University
University of Arizona
University of Pittsburgh
University of Texas at Arlington
"We've been studying and teaching AIDC for sixteen years here at Ohio University," said Bruce Philpot, managing director of the University's Center for Automatic Identification. "It is a set of enabling technologies for so many operations that we continue to find new uses every day. One of our objectives has been to help proselytize the industry. This Institute is a major contributor to that objective and the CODESOFT donation will multiply the effects of our efforts by enabling us to have a state-of-the-art AIDC system for the University and by letting other higher education facilities learn and teach AIDC in their own facilities. We view our efforts here at the Technical Institute as Teaching the Teachers."
CODESOFT is advanced label design software that is designed to support the latest enterprise software systems. As a Microsoft Windows-compatible software program, it presents users with a familiar interface and drag and drop design capabilities. Both professors and students will be able to use CODESOFT to create label designs and simulate AIDC situations in the lab. Of particular interest will be the CODESOFT software's ability to produce labels for the fast-growing radio frequency identification (RFID) market. RFID labels are becoming widely used in grocery and other retail businesses, security, logistics, asset tracking and a virtually unlimited range of industries.
"AIDC has always been a hot topic," commented Mike Strand, global technology advisor for TEKLYNX. "It complements new wireless technologies, security systems, customer relationship management and other marketing initiatives. As a result, many colleges and universities are introducing and enhancing their AIDC-related courses. The participants in the AIDCTI are the advance guard of the movement and we are pleased to offer CODESOFT software to help them further understand and teach the potential of automatic identification and data collection."
