Avicon Introduces RFID Consulting Services Focused on Improving Supply Chain Performance

IntelligentApplications News - March 15, 2004
Avicon has announced two new service offerings: RFID Assessment Service and RFID Enablement Solution. These new offerings focus on helping organizations leverage Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to improve supply chain performance. The company also announced it has become a subscriber of EPCglobal, the global standards organization that is leading the development of industry driven standards for the Electronic Product Code (EPC) Network to support the use of RFID.

"RFID is an opportunity for organizations to improve working capital performance and supply chain service levels," said Marc Linster, chief technology officer at Avicon. "Avicon has a deep understanding of the challenges of RFID technology and the expertise needed to enable RFID to improve supply chain performance. We provide organizations with architectural and program management leadership, combined with partner driven solution capabilities for successful RFID implementation."

Avicon's new RFID Assessment Service intends to help clients understand the requirements imposed by the Department of Defense (DoD) and leading retailers and how the required investment in RFID technology can be leveraged to improve supply chain service levels, optimize cost, and reduce supply chain inventory.

Avicon's new RFID Enablement Solution helps clients identify and configure the supply chain building blocks needed to turn their RFID investment into a significant performance enhancement. The service helps clients align their IT architecture, supply chain process flows, and extended supply chain relationships with the needs and capabilities of RFID for increased supply chain performance.
