GS1 opens RFID test centre

GS1 UK, the supply chain standards and solutions organisation, has opened the EPCglobal RFID Test Centre, which is designed to help organisations understand and gain the business benefits that can be achieved from RFID which include cost savings, improved accuracy and increased efficiency.

The centre is hosted by Intellident in Winsford, Cheshire and it has advisors from GS1 UK, EPCglobal and systems integrators with first hand experience of RFID implementations and standards compliance.

The team will help test centre users assess their business needs and determine if RFID is the best solution for their organisation through demonstrations, tests, specific design sessions and discussion groups. The Centre can also be used by organisations to test how the technology works on their own products and assets and in environments similar to their own. The Centre also provides the opportunity to test and integrate RFID technologies to develop solutions to meet an organisation’s requirements.
