What are some of the issues companies should consider before purchasing RFID printer-encoders and applicators?

Performance capability can be measured by how well hardware executes against its advertised capacities. Operational capabilities can be measured based on an assessment of how well the device performs against defined business processes. This structured approach can help companies determine the ability of hardware to execute its intended function in a consistent and repeatable fashion, while allowing the firm to make better business decisions without relying on a specification sheet. Several characteristics should be considered when choosing printer-encoders and applicators, such as adjustability, accuracy, media capacity, application method, form factor, power and connections, and ease of use (members, see The Smart Way to Print Smart Labels).
