By Bob Violino – RFID has not taken off as people once thought it would. For many prospective RFID users, there has been hesitation due to fear of the unknown.
“The biggest reason more companies are not using RFID is simply because they perceive it as risky. Companies naturally wait for a technology to mature and be proven to deliver value by others,” says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal.
But that’s not the only thing holding up RFID deployments. Roberti points out that RFID is fairly complex to deploy. “Each facility is different and radio waves might behave differently in each facility,” he says. “Few companies sell integrated solutions, meaning a company might need to buy tags from one company, readers from another and software from a third company. Moreover, you might need to write a custom interface to your existing back-end software, or even customize that software to handle serial numbers.” more> http://tinyurl.com/a8mgduq
