RadioTag RFID Technology Services Wins Innovation Award
Inventor Honored As Finalist For Invent Now America Product Innovation
ORLANDO, FL -- March 2004 -- Continuing its tradition of honoring America's greatest innovations, the Invent Now® America national competition has recognized RadioTag(sm) as a finalist in its first award program to honor invention ideas that have broad interest for their simplicity, ingenuity, cleverness and applicability.
RadioTag tracking technologies work with a tiny microchip — no bigger than a pencil tip and as flat as a postage stamp — embedded in an adhesive label that will soon find its way on millions of products.

Called Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID for short, it works much like a bar code that is read by handheld scanners and the wireless terminals carried by such delivery carriers as UPS®, FedEx® and DHL®. The RadioTag service innovation is already being readied for license and launch with courier service pilot programs and other track and trace network applications.
As a result of the award, ABC's Good Morning America featured the RadioTag service as one of America's best new inventions.
