EIS deal strengthens Domino's technology.

As the integration of track and trace RFID technology slowly makes headway within the supply chain, we can expect more mergers and acquisitions. The latest involves Enterprise Information Systems Inc. (EIS), now owned by Domino Printing Sciences plc of Cambridge, UK. Based in Dallas, TX, USA, EIS continues to trade under this name as part of Domino's Integrated Solutions Group. It gains greater access to other countries, especially the key European and Asian markets. Domino benefits from EIS's strengths in the consumer packaged goods and aerospace and defense markets.

It has also seen a further boost for its core inkjet and bar coding businesses. The UK division of the GS1 group has chosen Domino to act as an authorized training center, forming part of a worldwide network specializing in cross-sector supply chain standards. The company will host introductory courses on GS1 bar code standards and business applications in Cambridge and Bristol. The GS1System is supposed to ensure that all companies adhere to the same standards not only in bar coding and scanning, but also e-business messaging, data synchronization and radio frequency identification. The introductory GS1 course was developed in response to retailers' frustrations at poor standards of bar coding from some suppliers.
