Nordic ID at NRF Retail's BIG SHOW in New York

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 Initiative2012 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.
