Antares Vision Group (AVG), a leading global provider of hardware and software track and trace solutions and one of the major players in inspection systems and smart data management, has acquired ACSIS Inc. through its fully controlled company rfxcel for an enterprise value of $12 million.

Founded in 1996, ACSIS has been providing solutions and services to Fortune 1000 manufacturing companies with some of the most complex and highly regulated supply chains in the world. It delivers innovative software solutions and services to companies with complex warehouse, distribution, and packaging challenges, assists with their data collection requirements for track and trace and inventory optimization through their supply chains, and delivers seamless integration of information to their ERP systems.

ACSIS has had zero churn among its Top 10 customers, which include DuPont, Cintas, BIMBO, Hershey, and Coca-Cola. AVG will retain ACSIS’ highly experienced and proven executive team. 

“The ACSIS acquisition will further strengthen our unique end-to-end solution for the digital supply chain,” rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said. “It will provide new customers and allow us to enter into new industry verticals, as well as into the relevant returnable asset management market, extending our presence in the United States.”

ACSIS CEO Jeremy Coote said the acquisition brought together industry-leading organizations and technologies. “For more than 20 years, our incredibly talented team has been at the forefront of creating some of the most sophisticated supply chain visibility solutions for manufacturing companies around the world,” he said. “The combination of Antares Vision Group’s world-class talent with ACSIS technology, domain expertise, and commitment to innovating supply chain ecosystems will help ensure our success in an increasingly competitive industry.”

With its domain expertise in data collection and serialization, ACSIS in 2019 launched the ACSIS Cloud Platform, a next-generation cloud-based supply chain visibility platform that spans data collection to business process to real-time analytics and uniquely enables personalized, private supply chain edge ecosystems. The ACSIS Cloud Platform solves the toughest supply chain visibility challenges, including:

* Product traceability: item-level tracking using serialization, barcodes, RFID, and other sensors; edge data collection; visibility across multi-partner ecosystems to ensure regulatory compliance, improve public safety, and enable sustainable supply chains

* Returnable asset management: tracks returnable transport items (RTIs) across the extended supply chain in real time to deliver accurate inventory status; ensures compliance and efficiency; controls shrinkage and ensures proper maintenance and inspection of RTIs; predicts demand to support improved planning and customer service

* Partner collaboration: integrates with partners across operating ecosystems; delivers real-time supply chain and production visibility; creates more transparent and agile supply chains; maintains common enterprise standards; ensures consistent serialization data and uniform product labeling
