If so, where can I find a qualified list of professionals in this field?
There are no large national companies that specialize in rolling out RFID systems, but there are midsize systems integrators focused on deploying RFID systems.
There are “qualified” RFID professionals, though our industry no longer has a certification program. Work is currently underway to create a new program, known as the International RFID Institute (see The Return of RFID Certification, International RFID Institute Prepares Certification Program, What’s the Latest in the Efforts to Create a New RFID Certification? and RFID Institute Seeks Subject-Matter Experts).
You could visit RFID Connect to search for “systems integrators,” but a better approach might be to find companies in your industry that have already deployed RFID solutions, and then talk to those firms about how well their integrator performed. I can probably put you in touch with the right people at those businesses.
