An Overview of RFID Today
Senior executives will hear the truth about where RFID adoption currently stands, where it is making a difference for companies in specific industries, and how smart businesses have developed strategies to deploy the technology in a way that enhances their business goals.
Taking a Strategic Approach to RFID
Learn the difference between short-term tactical applications of RFID and a long-term strategic approach that can enhance your company's major goals and reduce costs in a variety of areas. The benefits of taking a strategic approach will be explained.
A Step-By-Step Approach to Developing a Strategic RFID Plan
To be successful, companies need to set clear goals for their RFID deployments; map existing business processes; determine where data needs to be collected, as well as how that information will be used; and then select the technology that will achieve the desired goals. The presenter will walk participants through this process.
A Technology Overview
Learn about the different types of RFID systems, how they work, how they are different, how they map to specific application requirements and how they can be integrated with other technologies, such as 2D bar codes, infrared and GPS, to create an automatic-identification infrastructure. In addition, hear about the software options available, and come away with strategies for integrating RFID data with your back-end systems.

This session will discuss the common employee reactions that companies face when deploying RFID, as well as how to avoid typical problems. Learn how to build a team that can execute on a strategic RFID plan, and how to convince senior management to fund RFID projects.
