Alien Technology to Host Workshop About RFID in Latin America

Alien Technology, a provider of ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification products and services, has announced that it will hold a Latin America RFID Academy workshop on Aug. 22-25, 2017. The workshop will take place in Miamisburg, Ohio.

According to Alien, the demand for RFID solutions is on the rise in Latin America and worldwide. Adoption of the technology has been rapid in retail, health care, transportation and manufacturing, the company reports, for real-time tracking of items in the supply chain to improve customer service.

The Latin America RFID Academy workshop will discuss how RFID operates in different environments. Presenters will offer best practices, showcase the latest technologies, and explain how to solve challenges in real-world settings and how to maximize a return on investment (ROI). Attendees will receive hands-on experience in break-out lab sessions and see RFID in action at the RFID Solutions Center, a 15,000-square-foot simulated supply chain and retail facility.

The company is offering a free seat at the event with a developer's kit purchase of either its ALR-F800 or ALR-H450 handheld reader. Alien has also added training on its new ALR-F800-X with Emissary solution, which is being implemented by numerous companies worldwide to reduce the cost and complexity associated with installing, configuring and managing a network of RFID readers.
