Intellareturn Named Tier 1 Member for Microsoft Certified Partner Program

NEW YORK, NY -- August 8, 2006 -- Intellareturn Corporation today announced that the company was chosen to join the Microsoft Certified Partner Program as a Tier 1 member for radio-frequency identification (RFID) initiatives. Intellareturn will develop "plug and play" logistics applications and solutions as an independent software vendor (ISV) in conjunction with the Microsoft BizTalk RFID strategy, minimizing technical and resource-related barriers to RFID adoption.

According to recent statistics published by BCC Research, the RFID industry is booming as producers and suppliers rush to integrate the technology into their production lines. These trends represent an average annual RFID growth rate of 8 percent.

By combining Microsoft's server and software products with Intellareturn's application development and systems integration expertise, organizations can gain real-time access to meaningful warranty and reverse-logistics information and services throughout the enterprise. These efforts will support the plans of both courier shippers and postal service companies looking to operate more efficiently through the integration of EPC/RFID applications.
