Rebrands to New Name Fluensee

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - May 30, 2006 - Applied Logistics, Inc. today announced the completion of Series A financing led by IllinoisVENTURES. The funds will be used to capture a greater share of the rapidly growing market for RFID-enabled applications which track and manage the physical movement of assets and inventory.

Applied Logistics also announced that it will be operating under a new name, Fluensee, in support of the company’s strategy to extend beyond its current transportation and logistics industry focus. Fluensee will expand into additional markets that are faced with a growing need to gain improved control and visibility over their assets.

“Companies today are faced with increased pressure to reconcile physical assets with corporate financial records,” said Tim Harvie, Fluensee president and chief executive officer. “Fluensee is uniquely positioned to help its customers realize the value of RFID by gaining better visibility, control, security and utilization of their physical assets.”

“Fluensee’s unique combination of proven software solutions, an experienced management team, a strong partner network and extensive hands-on knowledge of RFID complements our existing technology portfolio,” said Rob Schultz, senior director of IllinoisVENTURES. “We are excited to be involved in the growth of Fluensee and the potential opportunity for them to leverage our existing portfolio of strong technology innovators.”

“Our strong partnerships with IllinoisVENTURES and leading technology and service providers such as Sun Microsystems will allow Fluensee to accelerate sales growth and expand our already substantial intellectual capital,” said Tim Harvie, president and chief executive officer of Fluensee. “We believe real-world experience coupled with our access to the R&D capabilities of the University of Illinois creates the foundation for establishing Fluensee as the leader in applying RFID technology to asset-intensive business processes.”
