Our Company Story

Omni-ID began as a research and development team formed in the 1990s within QinetiQ, an international defense and security technology company. The team was charged with exploring and challenging the boundaries of RFID. The result was a groundbreaking technological improvement — passive UHF RFID tags that provide near perfect accuracy in harsh environments, including in the presence of metals and liquids. This represented a fundamental shift in the way the RFID tags were viewed and broadly expanded the practical use applications. Omni-ID was launched as a stand-alone company.

Solutions for Real World Applications


Known for consistently setting industry standards, Omni-ID is the original inventor and patent-holder of the on-metal passive RFID tag. In 2012, the company launched ProVIEW — the world’s first visual tagging system — to replace paper-driven processes in manufacturing, providing not only the ability to track assets; but dynamic, readable instructions right on the tag, completely changing the auto-identification industry landscape.

Today, Omni-ID has dramatically expanded to become not only the leading developer and global supplier of high performance, highly durable, passive & active RFID tags used to improve workflow, asset tracking and management, but to building and architecting complete asset management solutions for Fortune 500 companies around the globe.

From improving inventory and supply chain management, to compliance and real time visual instructions – Omni-ID’s versatile family of hardware and software products enables complete end-to-end asset tracking and management solutions for industry, IT and manufacturing.

As constant innovators it is no surprise to see Omni-ID as a leading force in harnessing the power and potential of ‘The Internet of Things (IoT)’ for tracking and monitoring purposes. The launch of the ‘Sense’ range of IoT devices in January 2020 is the start of an exciting new chapter that is set to develop and evolve quickly.
