Vigier will offer its customers web-hosted product tracking with a solution powered by Idencia.

We are now able to track every single component during production and the logistics process while providing our customers with the tools to automate their maintenance processes.”
— Christian Miescher, Head of Technology & Innovation, Vigier Rail

TOPSFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, September 11, 2018 / -- Idencia, Inc. (“Idencia”) announced today that it is partnering with Vigier Rail AG (“Vigier”) and its sister company, Sonneville, both located in Muntschemier, Switzerland, to provide RFID product tracking for Vigier’s customers of concrete sleepers (railroad ties) and Sonneville’s Low Vibration Track systems. Vigier will embed RFID tags during the production process and provide its customers with the ability to collect and track product information digitally over the product’s useful life. The service will be provided by Vigier and powered by the Idencia product tracking system.

RFID information tracking enables users to trace production information and quality assurance records for each manufactured product. Information is collected during manufacturing and associated with each product according to the serial number produced on the RFID tag. As an example, raw material information, concrete mix batch recipes, and other product information can be input to the system and associated with each product made from that concrete batch. This information is web-hosted and can be accessed from a password protected account using a browser. So, the customer can later scan a tag embedded in a concrete sleeper and find all related material information from the concrete batch that was used to manufacture that sleeper.

Vigier customers who wish to collect and track additional information during installation and maintenance may subscribe for their own use. More information about Vigier’s RFID tracking service can be found on its web site.

Jeffrey M Pollock, Idencia CEO remarked:

“We are delighted to partner with Vigier, a valued customer that is a leader in its industry. In a world embracing big data and analytics to produce operating efficiencies, Vigier understands that market advantage will move to suppliers that include digital product data with their core product offering.”

Christian Miescher, Head of Technology & Innovation at Vigier, stated:

"Idencia’s innovative technology and their close support allowed us to move forward on our digital roadmap. We are now able to track every single component during production and the logistics process while providing our customers with the tools to automate their maintenance processes during the lifetime of their infrastructure."
