Significant Saving Potentials as Well as Opportunities and Risks in RFID Projects

News - August 23, 2004

International market research and market data firm Research and Markets has announced the addition of the research study "Saving Cash: RFID — What does it bring to the table" to their offerings.

The study points out significant saving potentials as well as opportunities and risks of RFID projects on the basis of five case studies: A branch of a department store, a branch of a supermarket offering a complete assortment of goods, a distribution center of a logistics company, a production center of a textile manufacturer and a production center of a food manufacturer.
