Best RFID Deployment Practices

RFID Journal has collected a series of articles focused on learnings from early adopters to help you avoid costly mistakes and maximize the chances that your RFID project will be a success.

To help our readers deploy RFID successfully, RFID Journal has published a series of
best practices articles in our magazine and on our website, based on interviews conducted
with early adopters who have spent years deploying RFID systems—and who have learned
what does and doesn’t work. Often, these companies learned the hard way—by innovating
and through trial-and-error. They agreed to share their insights and learnings, so you can
avoid the missteps they made, as well as the time and money they spent.

RFID Journal has collected these best practices articles in this special report, covering
the many issues involved with deploying RFID successfully. “Reaching the Decisive Moment”
examines the steps necessary to move from a pilot to a rollout. Expanding that rollout to different locations requires a detailed plan, as the experts we spoke with emphasized in “Best
Practices for Rolling Out RFID.”
