Ten Questions to Ask Your RFID Systems Integrator
It is important for a business to know which questions to ask when deploying a new technology, especially one whose application and capabilities continue to evolve. Early adopters of RFID are ahead of the technology curve, but boundaries are still undefined as people determine all possibilities for RFID. This session will focus on important topics that a business should ask its RFID systems integrator: how will RFID improve the efficiency of my business; how to ensure that your RFID solution leverages your enterprise's investment in Cisco and other IT infrastructures; how will RFID enable me to track assets and equipment quickly; what kind of techniques and support will the integrator do before, during and after the implementation; is a passive or active approach right for me; and more. These questions play a vital role in the decision to implement the technology and affect not only the business, but also the way a company is perceived in the industry.

Item-level Tagging: Use Cases and Feasibility Assessment
Previous research on RFID for consumer packaged goods retailers has shown a benefit while only tagging pallets and cases. However, item-level tagging provides even more potential than has been seen in the past, with the largest benefits—for both retailers and suppliers—likely to occur on the sales floor. For more than a year, the University of Arkansas’ RFID Research Center has performed numerous lab tests with item-level RFID technology and participated in several pilots. This session will overview the use cases and the outcomes of various tests designed to examine these use cases, both in the lab and in the field.
