Survey: Vendors Ready for RFIDSurvey: Vendors Ready for RFID
A Computing Technology Industry Association survey shows vendors are ready for RFID, but their customers may not be
June 20, 2007
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. -- Technology resellers and solution providers are poised to add radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions to their portfolios, but their customers have been slow to embrace the technology, a survey by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) reveals.
The survey found that 84 percent of technology resellers, solution providers, systems integrators, and consultants will or may offer RFID products and solutions in the next three years.
But nearly two-thirds of the companies (65.6 percent) said their customers have yet to implement RFID solutions. Among channel companies with customers who have implemented RFID, most said that less than 20 percent of their customers are using the technology.
“The results of our survey are reflective of the RFID market, where rosy forecasts about rapid and widespread adoption have given way to the reality of dealing with a technology whose broader deployment has been challenged by equipment and tagging costs, murky and unclear return-on-investment for supply chain applications, and a workforce skills shortage,” said David Sommer, vice president, e-business and software solutions, CompTIA.
