Best RFID Implementation
This award will be given to the end-user company that has demonstrated the best use of RFID technology to improve its manufacturing, supply chain or retail operations. The winner will be the company that best demonstrates how RFID is delivering real value to shareholders. The finalists, selected by an independent panel of judges, will each have 15 minutes to make a presentation: DIRECTV, for its use of RFID to track 200,000 pieces of broadcast equipment, dramatically reducing the time required to take inventory of these items. Note: DIRECTV will be presenting in the Supply Chain track at 9:00 AM, Friday April 17; Interstate Batteries, for its use of RFID on racks to monitor inventory and streamline replenishment across a large number of retail locations; Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, for its use of an active RFID-based real-time location system across multiple applications.
