"But the payoff is significant in terms of time and cost savings. RFID Journal and EPC Connection have played a major role in educating the market and keeping end users up to speed on industry growth. The Alien RFID ROI partner demonstrations allow us the opportunity to assist in that effort, and to show how our leadership technology and partnerships are bringing real business benefits to our customers."
