- The Decade Ahead
Here are my predictions for how RFID will be adopted over the next 10 years.
- The Top 10 Stories of 2009
It was a tough year for every industry, so it's no surprise there was both good and bad news for the RFID sector.
- Explaining the Value of the Visibility RFID Creates
If vendors don't talk about the many benefits RFID can deliver, end users will always be short-changed.
- Understanding RFID's Role in an Enterprise
Achieving total business visibility will require a suite of technologies, but RFID will do the lion's share of the work.
- What You Don't Know Can Hurt You
One reason more companies aren't adopting RFID as quickly as possible is that they have no idea just how inefficient they really are.
- The Recession Is Over—Now What?
The global economy appears to have turned the corner, but no one expects sales to pick up quickly, so companies need to focus on cutting costs and enhancing efficiencies.
- Using RFID to Direct Employees
The technology alerts unskilled workers when routine tasks need to be performed, and also enables managers to confirm they've been completed properly.
- Fixing the Warehouse
With companies seeking to cut costs and wastes wherever they can, problems in the warehouse are getting more focus, and RFID can help.
- Are RFID's Benefits to Apparel Retailers Real or Hype?
Many CEOs are skeptical, but here's why retailers have used the technology to achieve an increase in profit of 5 percent or more.
- A New ROI Tool for Apparel and Footwear Retailers
Our calculator will help companies determine which benefits RFID can deliver, and enable them to run pilots resulting in information that will determine whether it makes sense to deploy the technology.
- RFID Read Reliability Is Not an Issue
RFID is far more accurate than existing systems, yet some people continue to insist they can't adopt the technology until it is 100 percent reliable.
- Bar-Code Technology Is Not Cheaper Than RFID
Many companies miss the opportunity to lower costs and boost sales because they confuse the expense of the data carrier with that of data acquisition.
- The Myth of Perfect Read Accuracy
Retailers don't need to read every tag, every time, in order to gain business benefits from RFID. Those who think they do are missing the point—and perhaps a big opportunity.
- Achieving Six Sigma Retailing
Retailers would like to perform at the same level as manufacturers that have embraced Six Sigma strategies, but it can't happen without RFID.
- RFID Solutions Come of Age
A lot of new products will be on display at next week's RFID Journal LIVE! conference, including several solutions designed to solve specific business problems.
