Arrow Electronics has signed an agreement with Quuppa, a Finnish specialist in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), to resell its products and services to Arrow’s customer base.

Quuppa’s Intelligent Locating System provides tracking of tags and devices to within a few centimetres and with millisecond latency. To date, the technology platform has achieved widespread use in indoor tracking applications in areas ranging from industry and healthcare to retail and security.

The Intelligent Locating System is highly scalable and features an open API that simplifies integration with existing and future systems. It has inbuilt telemetry and monitoring, which removes the need for active maintenance and, combined with the long-lasting tags and ease of deployment, minimises cost of ownership.

RTLS technology has helped to open up a market for a number of new applications. In industrial settings, RTLS helps enable a safer and more efficient workplace, tracking assets, optimising their use and alerting personnel to potential dangers. In the healthcare sector, which uses the technology to track medical equipment in hospitals automatically, monitoring can now be extended to benefit vulnerable patients.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand the Quuppa customer base and sales reach via Arrow’s network in the EMEA region,” said Sammy Loitto, CEO of Quuppa.

“Location services are being adopted across many markets, and the addition of Quuppa’s portfolio gives our customers further choice and flexibility in their product designs,” said Matthias Hutter, vice president product management and supplier marketing EMEA, Arrow Electronics.
