)-- Michael Queralt, CEO of Queralt, Inc., a leading developer of cloud-based RFID tracking systems, announced today that Paul A. Strassmann – former Director of Defense Information of the Department of Defense, former CIO of corporations such as Xerox and General Foods, and former Acting CIO of NASA – has joined the company as its new Chairman of the Board. “Paul Strassmann is both a leading visionary and brilliant pragmatist in the world of information technology. We are pleased to have him join our company as Chairman as we continue to rapidly expand,” said Queralt.
Strassmann has an illustrious career spanning 56 years in the information technology field. In 1997, he was named to the CIO Hall of Fame by CIO Magazine as one of the twelve most influential CIOs of the decade. “He is recognized as an influential IT developer whose ideas have been the cornerstones for successful businesses,” said Dean Lloyd Griffiths when Strassmann joined the School of Information Technology & Engineering at George Mason University where he is a distinguished professor of information sciences.
"The world is exploding in its use of the Internet," said Strassmann. "There is a shift taking place from an Internet of people to an Internet of people and objects. Queralt is a company focused on providing support to manage these valuable assets using a unique technology that jumps over the limitations requiring physical proximity and scanning devices. Its cutting-edge design as a cloud-based solution," he continued, "frees up organizations to focus on their top priority to profitably manage their business. With a winning program and management team, I expect Queralt to become a very successful enterprise."
Queralt’s RFID/sensor technology uses cloud-based Internet services with a user-friendly dashboard, or graphical interface, to provide real-time tracking of high value physical assets, including personnel. It provides the needed security for large organizations to protect their investments and people, reduce costs, and increase productivity and profits.
Queralt, founded in 2006, has a growing list of customers that include corporations in the industrial, financial, security, manufacturing and service industries, as well as education and healthcare organizations, and U.S. government agencies like the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and the National Institute of Health.
