Nordic ID at NRF Retail's BIG SHOW in New
Thanks to everybody who visited our stand at the NRF Retail's
Big Show on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th. It was a huge success and
we appreciate the warm welcoming we received from America!
Nordic ID introduced Nordic ID Merlin, Nordic ID Morphic and
Nordic ID Sampo. The RFID products all impressed the crowd with
their long reading distance, low power consumption and long
operating time. Nordic ID Merlin UHF RFID Cross Dipole can operate
4-5 h and Nordic ID Morphic Cross Dipole up to 14 hours on a
single charge (with WiFi and RFID reading activated).
Featured at the booth were also our partners Omnitrol (Howard
Cheng and Anju Saksena) and E3 Pak (Sheila Barry). Omnitrol is a
developer of software for stores. E3 Pak sells environmentally
friendly security boxes for valuable goods that include embedded
EAS and EPC tags.
During the fair, Nordic ID participated in the VILRI seminar
(VICS Item Level RFID Initiate). VILRI is a group of advocates
for the use of EPC-enabled RFID in the retail supply chain.

Retailers see the benefits of
implementing RFID early
"Who ever uses RFID best will win", says Macy's CAO Tom Cole.
In time, RFID tags will be as common as barcodes. The question is
no longer whether to implement RFID or not, but when, to what
extent and how successfully.
VILRY study shows that early
adopters get the biggest gains from Item-Level RFID
According to a new study from the VICS Item-Level RFID
Initiative, 2012 may be a watershed year for radio
frequency identification (RFID) technology in the retail
sector. According to the study, as many as 80 % of the
surveyed retailers have initiated pilots using RFID to track item
sales in their stores.
"Chain-wide item-level RFID rollouts by some of North
America's largest retailers shows that this technology may soon be
broadly adopted by the industry, as businesses making relatively
small investments reap benefits ranging from reduced out-of-stocks,
increased sales, improved product distribution, access to more
customer insights, labor cost reduction and less theft. The
research and business case in our report indicates this will be the
future for the sector," says Joseph Andraski (president & CEO,
Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions).
Halal food products are being
tracked with the help of RFID
RFID will soon be implemented to track Halal food products. THE
Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei
Darussalam (AITI) in collaboration with the Ministry of Religious
Affairs (MoRA) have signed the contracts to start implementing
a pilot project using RFID to
track food. The customers will be able to ensure the standard of
the food they are about to buy.
A Chinese apparel warehouse
implemented large scale item level RFID
UPM RFID have carried out one of the largest item-level RFID
implementations for a Chinese apparel company with six million
apparel items tagged annually and Leo InnoTech and UPM RFID
implement a large-scale item-level RFID solution for apparel
warehouse optimization in China Leo InnoTech (LIT).
The solution focuses mainly on warehouse logistics optimization,
benefiting the apparel company with significantly lower labor
costs, RFID equipped gates and fast delivery.
Have a really nice weekend everybody!
