Berntsen International Inc. is proud to announce InfraMarker’s inclusion as a finalist in two prominent awards this spring, recognizing both its innovative use of RFID technology and its value in improving electricity networks.
“Most Innovative Use of RFID”
RFID Journal, a leading publication focused on radio frequency identification (RFID) and its many business applications, recently announced its shortlist of finalists for the 2016 RFID Journal Awards.
Comprised of six categories, including “Best RFID Integration,” “Best Use of RFID to Enhance a Product or Service,” and “Best NFC Deployment,” Berntsen International’s InfraMarker System is among two other finalists for the “Most Innovative Use of RFID.”
As RFID Journal explained in its recent announcement, the InfraMarker System is being recognized for its unique ability to integrate ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID, precision GPS and magnetic locating technologies together into a comprehensive underground asset management system.
Winners are scheduled to be announced at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2016 in Orlando, Florida on May 3 – 5, the company’s 14th annual conference and exhibition.
RFID Journal’s founder and editor Mark Roberti praised this year’s crop of candidates, adding, “these projects show how far RFID has come in delivering enterprise-wide benefits. Attendees at this year's event will benefit from hearing about these deployments, and will view the hardware, software and solutions featured in our Best New Product category."

This year’s submissions are divided into ten categories spanning the electricity, gas and offshore renewables sectors. The EIC’s awards panel has selected 58 candidates for its shortlist of finalists, with Berntsen International vying for “Best Electricity Network Improvement” among four other contenders.
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in Manchester, England on April 28th.
