Wal-Mart's Ongoing RFID Push

Wal-Mart this week continued its campaign to push RFID throughout the industry, with this powerful Money Magazine story adding new some details.

The piece has Myron Burke, strategy manager of Wal-Mart's store innovations and operations group, discussing a recent visit to a Wal-Mart equipped with on-floor RFID tagging. He reported that out-of-stock signs were discovered in 66 of about 200 total product categories within its electronics section. "With RFID, Wal-Mart management can now alert those store associates to fix the problem spots," the story said.
