ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Savi®, an innovator in big data/machine learning analytic solutions, supply chain management software, and sensor technology, today announced that it will continue to be the single provider for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) RFID-IV contract as it moves into its final option year from now through April 7, 2019.
The contract (#W52P1J-14-D-0014) established a $102 million ceiling for Savi to provide the DoD, other agencies and allied partners with a full range of state-of-the-art hardware, software and integration services, including RFID sensors, readers, and real-time location systems (RTLS) for asset tracking and in-transit visibility for locating and monitoring assets worldwide. In the second and final option year of the RFID-IV contract, Savi is introducing a lighter, easier-to-maintain, portable, deployment kit with state of the art electronics.
Savi is the only company to be selected as a prime contractor on all four of the RFID-named contracts (RFID-I, -II, -III and -IV) and was thrice named the single awardee (RFID-I, -II and –IV). Over the course of all four RFID contracts — which had a combined ceiling of more than $800 million — Savi won more than 95% of all awards.
“Savi has been a trusted supplier of supply chain solutions to the U.S. DoD and its allies for more than a quarter-century. We are humbled by the opportunity to continue supporting DoD mission-readiness through the application of our IoT supply chain technology,” said Rosemary Johnston, Senior VP Government Operations, Savi Technology. “As the DoD begins the process for the RFID-V contract, we are excited to share our next-generation technology, which expands reach by providing alternatives to aRFID ‘last known read’ capabilities and also brings with it substantial cost savings.” Savi’s hybrid aRFID/cellular sensors and low-cost cellular sensors provide live streaming, in-transit visibility for shipment and asset tracking anywhere in the world.
The original RFID-IV award followed the $204 million solicitation issued by the DoD in September of 2013, to support the Product Director Automated Movement and Identification Solutions (PD AMIS) mission.
Savi delivers live streaming facts and insights about the location, condition and security of in-transit goods. Using big data and analytics, Savi equips shippers, carriers, 3PLs and governments with actionable insights to optimize supply chains before, during and after transit, reducing costs and inventory while improving service. Savi is trusted to support some of the world’s largest and most complex supply chain networks for large CPG companies, Pharma, the US DoD and over a dozen government agencies around the globe.
