BioConnect Acquires Silent Partner Technologies to Expand Offerings for Intelligent Asset Tracking and Inventory Management to bring Security and Accountability to Critical Assets ranging from Narcotics and Controlled Goods to First Responder Gear and IT Assets

Following BioConnect’s acquisition of MedixSafe in 2021, the expanded capabilities within BioConnect’s Trust Platform will provide the ability to monitor the full “Chain of Custody” for controlled substances to help end the drug diversion contributing to the Opioid Crisis. 

Toronto-Canada, Memphis-Tennessee and Tampa-Florida, January 10th, 2024 

  • BioConnect has the largest installation base of biometric physical access devices in North America with over 18K active subscriptions, serving much of the Fortune 100 and over 80% of the top data centers.
  • MedixSafe by BioConnect sets the bar for quality American made cloud connected narcotic safes with best-in-class construction and FBI certified biometric access control for EMS/Fire Vehicles, Stations, and Clinics. 
  • Silent Partner Technologies has been a leader in RFID asset and inventory management for the last 20 years with exceptional custom installation services and over 1500 customers spanning EMS & Fire to Fleet Management and Heavy Machinery Compliance. 

 

BioConnect has acquired Silent Partner Technologies, Inc. (SPT), headquartered in Tampa Florida – a leading provider of RFID Inventory and Asset management software, expanding BioConnect’s leading Trusted Security Platform to create the most advanced cloud based smart safes, smart lockers, smart cabinets, smart rooms and smart vehicles for the intelligent “chain of custody” and security assurance for any critical asset. 

Portfolios of both companies complement each other perfectly. 

“Bringing security and accountability to assets ranging from Narcotics and Controlled Goods to First Responder Gear and IT assets is becoming increasingly critical in today’s environment and in particular eliminating Drug Diversion feeding the Opioid crisis. With the acquisition of Silent Partner Technologies, together we will offer a simple cloud subscription to upgrade any area protecting assets to become the next generation ‘Smart Space’ solution. Customers looking for higher security and ‘chain of custody’ accountability to protect their critical assets will find this solution very compelling” commented Rob Douglas, Founder and CEO of BioConnect. “BioConnect plus Silent Partner Technologies place the combined company in the leadership quadrant for Securing Things.” 

Ted Kostis, Founder of Silent Partner Technologies added “SPT is in good hands I could not have found a better fit nor team to finally realize and scale SPT’s true potential. 

The Fire and EMS market for BioConnect has grown at 100% year over year since the purchase of MedixSafe in 2021 and the company remains committed to an “American Made” footprint and will operate this new line of business under Ryan Mueller the 13-year veteran of BioConnect and newly appointed General Manager. 

MedixSafe and SPT both have a significant installation base with EMS & Fire agencies and those customers will benefit from the unification under BioConnect’s Trust platform”, Rob Douglas continued, “I’m also excited to congratulate Ryan Mueller on his promotion to General Manager. Ryan will be taking the baton from SPT’s founder, Ted Kostis, who has meticulously steered the trajectory of this industry-leading company over the last two decades. With a wealth of experience amassed during his 13-year tenure at BioConnect, Ryan has consistently demonstrated leadership in areas such as customer experience, professional services, and delivery. His profound expertise uniquely qualifies him to spearhead the seamless integration and strategic expansion of this new business venture for our organization.”
