LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Feb. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Zebra Technologies (NASDAQ: ZBRA) a global leader in products and solutions that provide real-time visibility into organizations' assets, people and transactions, and Kit Check, the leading provider of automated hospital pharmacy kit processing software, today announced a partnership that will integrate devices used in Kit Check's solution into Zebra's Zatar platform, a new cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) platform for enterprises. Zebra and Kit Check will discuss how both products can be used together at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2014 conference and exhibition beginning on February 23, 2014 featured at booth #6577.
Zebra's Zatar solution provides collection, control, and management of thousands to millions of devices in a simple and easy IoT platform, while Kit Check helps hospitals automate pharmacy kit restocking and verification processes using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. Both solutions leverage cloud-based platforms that extend monitoring, service and support capabilities.

With Zatar, Kit Check has a new tool to remotely access and manage hospital-based devices and further enhance uptime and service levels," said Kevin MacDonald, CEO of Kit Check. "Hospitals are under mounting pressure to improve patient safety and reduce cost while accurately processing pharmacy kits in high volume. This partnership offers additional flexibility and scalability as kit processing volumes increase."
"Zatar is a simple and powerful IoT solution that is easy for organizations of any size to implement and operate, even as more devices and collaborators are added to the platform," said Phil Gerskovich, senior vice president of New Growth Platforms for Zebra Technologies. "We are excited to partner with Kit Check to make it easy for hospitals to take advantage of IoT opportunities and address tasks that are extremely time consuming and error prone."
