RFID has the power to magnify retail competitiveness

RFID has the power to magnify retail competitiveness
After years of bit-parts without the promised breakthrough role, Radio Frequency ID (RFID) technology seems to be moving into the retail limelight. Using either passive or active tags attached to each item of stock, RFID means retailers can achieve a real-time picture of their entire inventory through either fixed scanning points or hand-held devices. As the price of tags has dropped substantially in the last decade, so the technology has become far more viable. Author: Steve Thomas, Chief Technology Officer, Omnico
