Microsoft Wants to Make Impact on RFID

microsoft_rfidMicrosoft recently announced that they intend to become a key player in RFID technology. More specifically, they plan to provide RFID-enabled software for mid-size companies to better manage their supply chains.

Since RFID technology can be expensive to implement, it has only been used for supply chain purposes at large companies such as Wal-Mart and Proctor & Gamble. By creating RFID-enabled software, Microsoft plans to bring the power of RFID to tier three and four companies.

While it may still take years for smaller businesses to adopt RFID technology, mid-size businesses will need to invest in RFID sooner if they want to stay competitive in the marketplace.
