MAPLE GROVE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Inc. revealed that GUARDIAN RFID, a global leader in inmate tracking systems for more than 17 years, is No. 462 on its annual Inc. 5000 Industry: Software list and No. 3633 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.  

I'm immensely grateful to the Guardians who support our user community, and the Warriors who place their trust in us to deliver on their digital imperative. No company is better positioned to help America’s Thin Gray Line to get their teams home safe.

Ken Dalley

The Inc. 5000 ranking comes at an exciting time as the company announced the launch of its officer experience platform (OXP), Command Cloud®, earlier this year. Command Cloud® is the only purpose-built OXP designed to equip correctional officers with all the tools required to create safe and secure environments. GUARDIAN RFID continues to work with correctional professionals across 40 plus states helping them implement modern cloud, mobile, RFID and AI technologies to operate their facilities efficiently while promoting safety and officer mental health.  

The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.
