RFID Journal Joins With EPCglobal US to Produce New EPC Standards and Benefits Track at LIVE! 2009

During RFID Journal's seventh annual conference and exhibition, a series of sessions will explain how Electronic Product Code standards are delivering value to companies across many industries.
Feb 04, 2009RFID Journal is partnering with EPCglobal US to offer a new EPC Standards and Benefits track at RFID Journal LIVE! 2009. The company's seventh annual conference and exhibition will be held on April 27-29, 2009, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel in Orlando.

"EPCglobal has been working hard not just to develop standards, but also to communicate the benefits companies that implement RFID systems based on those standards are achieving today," says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. "This track will help those who are being asked to tag shipments for customers, and those who just want to understand how they can deploy EPC-based technology in their supply chains."

RFID technology based on Electronic Product Code (EPC) standards is being adopted in a number of industries, including retail and consumer packaged goods, health care and pharmaceuticals, chemicals, manufacturing and apparel. In the EPC Standards and Benefits track, attendees will learn how to implement EPC standards, and how to employ them to drive value, both internally and across the supply chain. Session in this track will include:

Readiness Assessment and EPC Adoption Roadmap
How will EPC RFID adoption affect your company? Which functional areas of your organization should participate in an EPC adoption program? And how can you determine if your organization is ready to begin such a program? This EPC adoption roadmap will support your implementation, answering these and many other questions you might have.

Using EPC and GS1 Identifiers to Drive Business Value
The Electronic Product Code is a next-generation use of the GS1 system, an integrated suite of global standards that provides for the accurate identification and communication of information regarding products, assets, services and locations. These standards can be employed to identify physical things (trade items, assets, logistic units and physical locations), as well as logical things (corporations, or a service relationship between a provider and a recipient). This session will help you efficiently build solutions to improve your operations with simplicity and consistency, by utilizing the appropriate GS1 identification numbers, expressed through the Electronic Product Code.
