March 9, 2005—Enterprise computing giant SAP and RFID leader Intermec have joined forces to get smaller businesses interested in RFID. The idea is for SMBs to have the option to scale up to a full-blown implementation following a two-step path. The first step comes in the form of Intermec's starter kit that includes basic RFID hardware and a software interface to SAP's Business One, the company's business management software tailored specifically to the needs of SMBs. The second step would be the "expansion kit," including an Intermec label printer which could print both bar codes and RFID labels. According to Intermec's industry marketing director Bob Eckles, small businesses still not using any tracking technology might be better served by starting with bar codes and later graduating to RFID. Interestingly, this stands in stark contrast to Microsoft's position: the company's RFID program manager recently told CNET that RFID represents an opportunity for SMBs unequipped with bar code technology "to leapfrog the bar code era."
