barcodes  device. Customers can scan barcodes with their phones, store information about prices, coupons and discounts, create shopping lists, and even pay instead of using cash or credit card. Cash desks are also not forgotten—they are capable of recognizing a customer and charging them directly from their bank or mobile phone account using fingerprint scanners. Also, all cash registers are equipped with RFID scanners. As a result of these innovations, sales rose by 15% over the last year, and 20% of new Read More

Jack Link's Beef Jerky Case Study:
The nagging question is,

barcodes  have not fully leveraged barcodes internally and thus still rely largely on manual data entry, resulting in untimely, inaccurate data and process inefficiencies. Whereas many large enterprises do not see a benefit from RFID through increased inventory accuracy, there appears to be a genuine opportunity for SMEs to leapfrog the barcode area and justify some of the cost of RFID based on automated, timely, and accurate data capture and its associated advantages.

Thus, to achieve these additional above-touted business benefits, RFID use must automate business processes for better stock identification, and the act of automating information collected from stock movements requires considerable additional business logic and analytics. For example, just an RFID reading event will not give any indication as to whether the stock is moving out or in , and without the use of multiple Read More

The Middle Kingdom - From Wired to Wireless
Confused about RFID middleware? RFID middleware has a critical role to play in cleaving together and clarifying the signals and intelligence, bidirectionally

barcodes  when people call this barcodes on steroids'. There is already a world of EDI/scan data standards out there. How will middleware logic integrate and interpret to the miniature sensing devices, and interpret smell, spoilage, etc? There is huge power in the physical/sensing attributes of this technology—yet to be developed. All this is pretty cool stuff. And somewhere in your RFID stack all this work will need to get done. Ironically, the middleware applications in the market don't necessarily do all of Read More
