Paragon ID acquires the assets and IP rights of RFID Discovery, reinforcing its position in the health sector

Paragon ID (Euronext Paris - FR0011980077 - PID), the leading provider of identification solutions for e-ID, Transport & Smart Cities, Traceability & Brand Protection, and Payment, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its position in the RFID market by acquiring the intellectual property rights and assets of RFID Discovery,  the brand name for Harland Simon's highly-regarded asset management solution for the healthcare industry. 

The RFID Discovery product is a complete asset management solution that uses a range of advanced IOT technologies to track assets and inventory, enabling clients to improve efficiency, profitability and safety. The versatile solution enables data collection and analysis that is suitable for organisations from SME through to large enterprises, providing insights into asset management, manufacturing and logistics processes.
