ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part Two: Implementation and Results


If companies are to find value in radio frequency identification (RFID), they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the barcode equation. Companies considering implementing RFID must think beyond the confines of the four walls of the plant and factory in order to take full advantage the benefits that this type of technology has to offer. However, as is with any emerging technology, the bottom line is to only implement RFID when the ROI justifies it.

While the cost of RFID chips are declining from the current 30 to 70 (USD) levels, until the price hits the forecasted 5 (USD) per chip, RFID implementation projects for early adopters may require a major financial commitment and a large slice of an IT department''s budget pie. If companies are to find value in RFID, they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the Read More
