Why Isn't Our RFID System Performing Consistently?

You'll need to hire a skilled systems integrator—and I emphasize the word "skilled." The integrator should perform a site survey, which means brining in a spectrum analyzer to identify any possible sources of interference. Once the source of interference or multipath—that is, waves reflecting off of surfaces and canceling each other out—is determined, it should be relatively easy to shield the source and improve the system's performance.
