Hexagon to acquire the Material Readiness® application of Atlas RFID Solutions

Hexagon enhances materials management capabilities with the acquisition of Jovix material tracking solution

(PRESS RELEASE) STOCKHOLM, 29-Sep-2021 — /EuropaWire/ — Hexagon AB (STO: HEXA-B), the global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions, has announced it further expands into the procurement, fabrication, and construction market with the acquisition of Jovix, which is a business of Atlas RFID Solutions that automates the material management throughout the construction supply chain.

The cloud-based, IoT-enabled, mobile, configurable workflow platform offers visibility and traceability into the status and location of materials throughout the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) lifecycle. This streamlined process, coined “Material Readiness” by Jovix, ensures construction crews have required materials without delay to complete their work according to plan. This is achieved by fully digitizing the supply chain to provide real-time, geo-contextual, and relational visibility from fabrication to installation.

Jovix combines web-based server software with information from multiple types of sensor tags and readers to automate previously manual, paper-based data collection workflows about the status and location of material as it moves throughout the construction supply chain. The software has been deployed in 25 countries on more than 650 job sites, including multibillion-dollar oil and gas and chemical construction projects. There are currently more than 7,500 Jovix users worldwide.

“The acquisition supports our continued expansion into the procurement, fabrication, and construction market,” says Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. “By removing impediments to productivity that result from material management issues intending to reduce material wait times to zero, Jovix provides value for owner-operators, EPC firms, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers.”

Jovix will be fully consolidated as of 1 October, operating within Hexagon’s PPM division. The acquisition has no significant impact on Hexagon’s earnings.
