December 1, 2004—Director of e-business strategy at Rhode Island-based American Power Conversion (APC), Rich Morrissey, shares his insights after more than a year of experience deploying RFID at the data and power protection giant. Among his most interesting comments, Morrissey points out that the time horizon for full RFID deployment is more than a decade. Ten years is a lot; 2014 is far later than most industry players are expecting the RFID transformation to occur. This figure is all the more notable when considered alongside the fact that Morrissey predicts APC will reach a return on its RFID investment in four years. The combination of these two facts implies, in contrast to what many naysayers have argued, that the grand vision of a transparent supply chain enabled by pervasive RFID is not the only scenario in which the technology is compelling. Done the right way, RFID can pay for itself in far more basic, less aggressive implementations.
