Getting an Edge With RFID
The global economy will face slower growth in the coming years, so companies and organizations will need to become more efficient to increase profits—and many have already figured out that RFID can deliver near- and long-term savings.
Josef Hipper, CIO of Hymer, a motor-home maker based in Bad Waldsee, Germany, and Göetz Pfeifferling, CEO of Lemmi Fashion, based in Fritzlar, Germany, also explain their reasons for adopting RFID. We'll showcase more case studies presented by decision-makers of midsize companies at RFID Journal LIVE! Europe 2011, our seventh annual conference and exhibition, on Oct. 18-19, in Amsterdam.
In addition to large and midsize companies, local organizations worldwide are adopting RFID to manage waste. The benefits are clear, as exemplified by the RFID system deployed in 2010 by Hattiesburg, Miss. Since its launch, the system has saved the city nearly $1 million through reduced labor, better safety practices, more efficient fuel and fleet maintenance, and improved billing (see Trash Talk).
One key to a successful RFID system, of course, is consistent and reliable reads. Check out our Product Developments section on page 30 to learn how reader antennas designed for specific applications make it easier to monitor myriad items in a wide range of environments.
The global economy will face slower growth in the coming years, so companies and organizations will need to become more efficient to increase profits (see Perspective on page 6). It's clear many businesses have already figured out that RFID systems can deliver near- and long-term savings.
