Is the technology expensive?

I am asked this question fairly frequently, and my response is always the same—it depends on the specific solution you deploy. There are different types of RFID, each with its own price tag. Cost varies widely, depending on whether you require a single reader or 10,000, and on whether you are tagging 100 items or 100 million. It also depends on whether you need to install new software, or plan to forward the collected RFID data directly to your existing back-end system. There is no way to provide even a ballpark figure without knowing a lot more about the type of system you need, and your particular application.
