ODIN, the leader in RFID software, solutions and benchmarking for global organizations, today released the free 2010 RFID Tag Pricing Guide™. The release marks the second annual installment reporting tag costs for end users and the results are surprising. Although many RFID tag prices remained flat, some segments actually increased for the first time. You can access more information and download a FREE copy at:
"RFID tag cost data is not widely available. ODIN published the second annual RFID Tag Pricing Guide™ as a service to end users who need tag cost data to make business decisions. To help better disseminate the information, ODIN has made the report available as a free download from our website," commented ODIN's Bret Kinsella.
Harold Goldzung who leads sourcing at ODIN acknowledged, "Not all RFID tags are alike. They have different features, different materials and therefore different cost structures. We never want an end user to put his project in jeopardy because he used incorrect tag cost data. The RFID Tag Pricing Guide™ is the first step in understanding RFID tag costs and ODIN Labs provides it as a free download."
Mr. Kinsella added, "The RFID tag industry has had an intriguing year marked by innovation, silicon shortages and a rapid increase in demand. In addition to the tag cost data, the pricing guide also explains the tag industry market dynamics for 2009-2010 and provides insight on what to expect in 2011. Tag prices are an important element of RFID ROI and we hope to provide greater clarity for users with this report."
