Sirit Introduces RFID Reader Swap-Out Program

    TORONTO, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Sirit Inc. ("Sirit") (TSX: SI), a leading
provider of radio frequency identification ("RFID") solutions, today
introduced its Reader Swap-Out Program featuring a $250 product pricing
incentive for users that replace currently installed RFID readers with Sirit's
INfinity 510. This Program covers any competitive or Sirit manufactured fixed
reader and runs from November 8, 2007 through March 31, 2008. The Swap-Out
Program will be executed through Sirit's worldwide distributor and reseller
    "Over the past few years, many RFID programs have been limited in scope
to lab or small test environments. As the market continues to mature, many
first generation readers and subsequent versions simply cannot meet the
performance promises in real world applications," stated Tony Sabetti, vice
president, RF Solutions, Sirit Inc. "The goal of our Swap-Out Program is to
help customers upgrade to the industry's leading RFID reader, Sirit's
INfinity 510, so they can benefit from the superior performance and technology
advancements within this next generation reader. With faster, more accurate
tag reads, Sirit's INfinity 510 delivers highly reliable data which in turn
translates to a more effective implementation of RFID technology."
    "After much progress in terms of product availability, performance, and
cost-reduction, many users in the passive UHF reader market would benefit from
a technology refresh," noted Michael Liard, Research Director for RFID and
Contactless at ABI Research (Oyster Bay, NY). "A program such as the one Sirit
is introducing offers existing and new customers assurances on price,
performance, and overall satisfaction with the opportunity to embrace the
latest technology advancements."
    The INfinity 510 continues to receive accolades for its outstanding
performance as the top-rated RFID reader as confirmed in the recent ODIN
technologies European RFID Reader Benchmark report. METRO Group, Germany's
largest retailer, also performed extensive reader testing and selected the
INfinity 510 as their primary reader for its RFID implementation at REAL
hypermarket stores currently being deployed across Germany.
    "We feel confident that once users are exposed to the high performance of
the INfinity 510, they will see and appreciate why it is recognized as the
leading RFID reader," added Mr. Sabetti. "When you combine our proprietary tag
acquisition technology with the most advanced reader management tool-set on
the market, you have a reader which can unlock new value and drive
efficiencies to the organizations that look to use RFID to improve their
