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.
Aug 19, 2014

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.”

Premium members can log in to download the guide at no additional cost. Nonmembers can either sign up for a premium membership or purchase the report in the RFID Journal Store.
