Report: RFID top priority for Wal-Mart


San Francisco Speaking at an industry conference in Taiwan, Ron Moser, RFID strategy leader for Wal-Mart, said that RFID technology is important to the company and that it recognizes its role as a leader in this area, reports said.

At the Taiwan International RFID Applications Show in Taipei, Moser reportedly said that Wal-Mart could improve sales greatly by fixing its inventory issues using RFID technology. Moser added that he anticipates RFID to have a greater effect on Wal-Mart than bar codes did when they debuted in 1984.

According to reports, Moser said that he expects RFID will lead to getting products on store shelves faster, thus reducing lost sales and making missing merchandise a soon-to-be phenomenon of the past.
