February 25, 2005—silicon.com reports that the UK's postal service, Royal Mail, will be moving forward with an RFID initiative to improve the flow of goods through its system. The British telecommunications giant BT has been tapped as the technology partner. Royal Mail's performance is monitored by a third party called PostWatch, which, according to its website, "acts as the 'voice of the consumer' in all postal matters to ensure customers get the best possible service." This includes levying hefty penalties against the postal service if it doesn't fulfill certain criteria. Indeed, there is £70m at stake if the Royal Mail doesn't clean up its act. The two to three million pound cost of the RFID system doesn't seem so steep in comparison with that. Talk about achieving your ROI.
