September 9, 2008—The winners of the 2008 RFID Excellence in Business Awards were announced on Monday at the RFID World exhibition and conference during a reception at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
RFID Revolution, a consulting firm based in Silver Spring, Maryland, created the awards last year in cooperation with RFID World to honor innovation and leadership in the deployment of RFID and RTLS systems.
According to RFID Revolution founder Leslie Downey, this year's entries reflected the expansion of RFID into more complex and mature applications. "There was a significant increase in the number of item-level tracking applications in the submissions, and several of them involved millions of tags," Downey said. "Many of them were international applications as well, involving multiple regions of the world."
The winners were selected from more than 60 entries received from June 16 to August 5, 2008.
Judges this year included Dr. Dan Dobkin, owner of Enigmatics; Ann Grackin, CEO of ChainLink Research; Sue Hutchinson, director of industry adoption at EPCglobal North America; Sandip Lahiri, IT architect at IBM Software Group; Doug Martin, consultant, RFID Applications; Greg Matula, program manager for RFID operations at Hewlett-Packard; Dan Mullen, president of AIM Global; and lead judge Laurie Sullivan, editor of RFID World Online.
Organizers added a new award category this year, Excellence in Protecting the Environment, for real-world applications that help protect natural resources, species or ecosystems.
"We were very happy to include that category this year," Downey said. "I believe RFID can offer a lot in terms of not only improving the efficiency of industry, but also improving the environmental sustainability of their business practices."
