Radio frequency identification technology (RFID) isn’t just for the supply chain anymore.
That’s the conclusion of an online survey released this month by ABI Research. The survey was conducted between April and June and involved 175 companies, some of which weren’t using RFID technology at the time.
One of the most public deployments of RFID has involved Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which is using the technology to improve logistics and supply chain management operations between suppliers and store facilities. Similarly, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has been mandating that suppliers use RFID to tag their goods.
