Sterling, VA (PRWEB) October 26, 2006
Shaw Industries Group, Inc., the world's largest supplier of carpets and rugs, selected ODIN technologies, the leader in the physics of RFID deployments, testing, and optimization software to design, and install an RFID system for supply chain optimization and to also comply with Wal-Mart's mandate. Shaw is part of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio and plans on leveraging RFID technology to solve multiple business issues.
"ODIN technologies physics expertise, proven methodology and track record of over 100 RFID projects set them apart in our evaluations. We believe RFID holds great promise to improve our supply chain efficiency and data accuracy. However, that will only be possible if the tag and reader communication are 100% reliable. ODIN's physics-based approach and automated services delivery software delivers reliable RFID network accuracy. That capability provided us with the confidence that they would deploy the system correctly the first time," commented Shaw VP and CIO James Berry.
ODIN will be designing and deploying two RFID systems which will provide Shaw with supply chain visibility, efficiency and Wal-Mart compliance. The initial deployment will take place in 3 facilities.
"Shaw's rigorous selection process and market leading position is representative of the Berkshire Hathaway companies. Being selected by Shaw is a great testament to our team and execution," Patrick J. Sweeney II, ODIN technologies President & CEO commented.
