Enterprise solution for employee distancing and contact tracing developed for customers, is first deployed internally to better understand technology, reporting, and workflows
COLUMBIA, MD (August 20, 2020) – Peak-Ryzex inc. (now Peak Technologies), a provider of digital supply chain and mobile workforce solutions, has today announced that it has successfully implemented a mobile distancing and contact tracing solution at the company’s managed services operations center in Alpharetta, Georgia.
The solution was designed to enable employees to have a full range of motion in their duties, using Zebra® BLE beacon technology paired with an Android device appropriate to the work environment. Peak Technologies has equipped its workforce at the facility with Zebra® TC77 mobile computers and MB1000 Bluetooth beacons. The software is a cloud-based platform called Worksafe® from Kutir Mobility.
The solution empowers employees to understand their physical proximity to co-workers and be alerted in real-time to any social distance violations that may occur within the boundaries specified within the application.
“One of our core guiding principles at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic was to ensure the safety of our workforce,” said Billy Lawder, Sr. Vice President of North American Operations, Peak Technologies. “We took initial steps to ensure proper PPE, sanitizing, and physical distancing within our facilities, and this application is a further investment in keeping our essential workers safe. Now, if a COVID-positive incident is reported at our facility, we have a strong infrastructure in place to respond and quickly determine the appropriate next steps in protecting our workforce,” added Lawder.
The solution includes the following capabilities:
“We found the configuration, installation and deployment of the contact tracing solution to be very intuitive and our staff adapted to this new safety tool very quickly,” said Peak Technologies Senior Operations Manager, Thomas Mathis. “I like knowing we have implemented an added layer of protection for our staff and also how we can quickly access contact and tracing data to help understand the implications using the WorkSafe solution.”
In addition to the implementation at Peak Technologies’ Alpharetta, Georgia facility, the company is also deploying the solution in several customer locations throughout the country.

Peak Technologies, Inc.
The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization. In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days.
Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future. We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc.
For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981. When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders. But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
