in Fluensee Sponsored Research
DENVER — December 10, 2008 — RFID-enabled asset management solutions provider Fluensee today announced its sponsorship of a research report entitled "Where RFID Meets ROI: Beyond Supply Chains" published by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE:HHS). The report includes survey responses and interviews from a diverse cross-section of approximately 200 organizations globally, and identifies RFID strategies within and beyond the supply chain that drive the highest value and greatest benefits. The full report is available for download at no charge at www.fluensee.com/aberdeen or at www.aberdeen.com.
In the report, Aberdeen's research reveals the common characteristics of Best-in-Class organizations when it comes to collecting, analyzing and acting upon RFID-generated data. The research states that of Best-in-Class respondents, 76% reported having the ability to integrate RFID-generated data with operational line-of-business applications, 50% had the ability to integrate RFID-generated data with and business analysis/intelligence applications, and 25% could measure and track changes in "time to information" for business critical functions.
In addition to revealing current and emerging trends in the various uses of RFID, companies seeking to increase ROI for their RFID investments are looking to leverage those investments beyond supply chain applications to address pressures concerning high-value assets and timely information. The report notes that organizations that have implemented RFID are more likely to have processes and technology in place that integrate RFID data to their operational applications and infrastructures, and that they were increasing automation to reduce human-introduced error and inconsistency. The best practices outlined in the report mirror the critical success factors that Fluensee identifies for each of its client implementations.
"Best-in-Class organizations identified by Aberdeen research are using RFID to deliver 'real-time, fully integrated data' about their high-value assets. With its flexible, open, scalable and business-centric solutions, Fluensee is well positioned to support the practices these organizations are using to succeed with RFID," noted Michael Dortch, senior research analyst at Aberdeen Group and author of the report.
