Omni-ID to be acquired by HID Global, creating RFID powerhouse
Omni-ID offers a wide range of UHF RFID devices for a broad array of applications in the logistics, energy, manufacturing and IT sectors.

Omni-ID brings to HID its extensive range of ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) devices, including passive hard tags and labels and a growing range of active devices that are used by world-leading companies to track and monitor manufacturing components, energy infrastructure, logistics containers, IT assets, and equipment on the International Space Station.

CEO Tony Kington, who was part of the team that founded Omni-ID when it was spun out of QinetiQ in 2007 commented, “Since Omni-ID started life as a dynamic and highly ambitious spin-out, we have been on a mission to provide our customers with a wide range of industry-leading passive and active UHF based hardware for a broad array of applications in the logistics, energy, manufacturing and IT sectors. HID Global provides the perfect platform to push our ambition even further, combining the RFID market leadership and structure of a major multinational organization with our renowned product development and agile engineering prowess”.

Omni-ID has developed original, patented technologies for on-metal tagging to enable a broad range of applications to improve asset tracking, inventory management and material flow management. Recently Omni-ID launched three new devices incorporating Quuppa’s highly accurate location technology, as well as its ‘OmniSphere’ middleware IoT platform, which simplifies data collection, storage, visualization and interpretation by delivering Sense data seamlessly to existing corporate systems, or customer applications.

OmniSphere provides a range of dashboards, to display various sensor data, including motion alarms, range measurement, push button alerts, temperature, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) coordinates and devices’ current and previous positions, which can be viewed on a configurable map.
