3 Steps to Prepare for RFID in 2008
What every company should consider before investing in RFID

planningRFID case studies are some of the hottest documents an RFID prospect can get his hands on, yet most of these documents only tell you how RFID is already working for someone else. In fact, they often neglect what may be the most important part of an RFID implementation - preparing to become an RFID buyer.

1. The first step in your RFID adventure should always be to define the goals of your project. The more you know about what you want to do, the easier it will be to find the right provider. And in the continuously improving world of RFID, additional information about your project will help provider better develop a project that will best suit all your needs.

2. But before going to an RFID provider, do a bit of general RFID research on your own. Not only will this help set your expectations for what RFID can and can't do, but it could also help you realize that RFID might only be part of your solution. Perhaps barcodes can be used on some of your items, but GPS for others. Maybe a combination of passive and active RFID will be your best solution. Information about RFID, which is available on many vendors' and organizations' websites, will enable you to become a more educated buyer.

3. One of the most important steps, but one that's often overlooked, is gathering information to help determine your potential ROI. If you don't know how much time or money your current inefficiencies are wasting, how will you know when or if your RFID investment will pay off? Spend some time considering these numbers. The results may scare you a bit, but your project will be much easier to justiy if you define the line you need to cross to get a return on your investment.

Finally, if this preparation still leads you toward an RFID implementation, please consider contacting Fluensee. Our experienced professionals, technology-agnostic solutions, and quick ROI results will be able to address all the information you gathered during you research. And if, after a successful implemenation, you want to do a traditional case study to show off to others, we'll understand.
