IBM expands RFID services for manufacturers
IBM is set to begin offering a range of new services designed to bring the benefits of radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems to industrial firms and mid-size businesses. The goal is to help smaller companies comply with mandates to adopt the technology by Wal-Mart, the Department of Defense and other organizations.
Services for industrial companies include consulting, development of the RFID business proposition, technological proof of concept and full rollout of the tagging systems. IBM has targeted companies in the automotive industry, along with firms in the aerospace and defense, manufacturing, chemical and petroleum, forest and paper, and electronics areas.
