Microscan and Cogiscan Announce a New Strategic Partnership

Jul 14, 2009

RENTON, WA, July 13, 2009 — Microscan, a global technology leader focused on precision data acquisition and control solutions, in collaboration with Cogiscan Inc., the leading track, trace and control solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, is pleased to announce the signature of a long-term strategic partnership.

This high-level agreement includes a number of different initiatives ranging from joint product development to cross selling of each company’s products.

According to Jeff Timms, President for Microscan, “This is a highly strategic partnership for our company that will greatly benefit our customers. Microscan already has a great technology portfolio of barcode and machine vision, which combined with Cogiscan’s patented RFID technology and their complete software platform, provides comprehensive solutions for track, trace and control. Cogiscan has unique technology and position within the electronics manufacturing industry. Their modular approach provides short ROI and allows seamless integration with legacy systems, which is exactly what the market needs right now.”

François Monette, Co-President for Cogiscan, stated, “We believe that this partnership represents a key turning point for our company. Our vision and our products are perfectly aligned and together we will be able to achieve more, and faster, than working separately. Overnight Microscan will be able to offer a wide range of Cogiscan’s existing products through Microscan’s existing channels and vice-versa. Over the long run, we expect even more synergies as we expand our joint product and market development efforts.”
