A Good RFID Education Can Boost Adoption and Payback
End users will find that a well-executed e-learning program can make the difference between an RFID project that thrives, and one that fails.
Dec 27, 2010—There is a growing consensus that radio frequency identification will one day have a dramatic impact on global industry and commerce. In fact, the technology is already beginning to have an impact—reducing costs and greenhouse gas emissions by driving operational efficiencies—for those organizations adopting it. Overall adoption, however, is occurring slowly. At RFID Revolution, we are convinced that one of the main reasons for this slow growth is the generally low level of RFID knowledge among end-user organizations, and even among many solution providers.
This deficit of foundational knowledge can have numerous negative consequences:
• People are ill-prepared to identify the tremendous variety of potential RFID applications within their enterprise.
• Project teams fail to reach a timely consensus about how best to employ the technology within the organization.
• Project leaders fail to secure management approval to fund projects.
• Organizations occasionally select the wrong technology for a particular application, as well as the wrong vendor.
Unable to achieve success and a return on investment from their company's RFID project, the team may decide to abandon it altogether, or may remain stuck in the weeds. Meanwhile, other potential applications go unrecognized.
