RESTON, Va., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ekahau, a worldwide leader in providing Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), has greeted the New Year bolstering an ecosystem of partnerships with marked distinction. Since announcing the Ekahau Developer program in April 2015, Ekahau has welcomed a wide variety of brand new technology partnerships. On the heels of Ekahau Open, the program concept of the platform's open API, the RTLS powerhouse also made available the new, sleek Ekahau A5 asset tag. These market advancements have given way to the creation of several exciting reseller partnerships helping Ekahau bring Wi-Fi RTLS to all corners of the world.

Offering an open platform for developing technological integrations supporting the healthcare, manufacturing, and retail industry—and beyond—national and international businesses are now able to offer their customers more of what they need. Ekahau Open is enabling companies such as Samsung Electronics, 1 Tag Brazil, and Houle Electric Ltd. to explore advanced location tracking-related integration opportunities for their customers. Other recently added Ekahau Developer program members include Ascom Sweden, Connexall, Honeywell International, Inc., RetailNext, Inc., Shipcom Wireless, Unify, and Lexmark International, Inc. While many Ekahau Developers are working on specific projects for software add-ins, Ernani Rocha, CIO of dual partner firm 1 Tag Brazil, remarks, "With instant access to Ekahau's RTLS platform, we can now explore so many more of our customers' requests and meet their unique business demands."

Location intelligence has long since brought businesses efficiency gains for expense, inventory, and personnel management. The growing proliferation of advanced Wi-Fi infrastructures along with Ekahau's flexible and easy to use RTLS solution portfolio has attracted the likes of CompuNet, Xentry Systems, Tessco, Exelegent, and PCM as new Ekahau RTLS resellers. "Ekahau RTLS is an attractive choice for Exelegent as our healthcare clients are eager to leverage simplistic technologies that work with their existing infrastructures. The open API and newer, more slender active-RFID asset tag from Ekahau are major advantages we can now offer," states Pat Donlin, Director of Sales and Marketing at Exelegent.  

Ekahau continues to welcome new partnerships for technology and reseller firms that are passionate and qualified to support Wi-Fi RTLS initiatives. For more information, please visit http://www.ekahau.com/rtls
