New York, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
RFID Journal announced today that it has launched a Portuguese-language version of its Web site for the Brazilian market. RFID Journal Brasil (brasil.rfidjournal.com) is supported by Hewlett-Packard's RFID Center of Excellence, the only research center in Brazil accredited by EPCglobal. The new site will feature news and case studies about radio frequency identification technologies and applications.
"Brazil's economy is growing quickly, as is interest in RFID in that country, so we are extremely excited to be able to bring our high-quality RFID articles to that market," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "We also plan to launch an event in Brazil next year, with the support of HP's RFID Center of Excellence."
Articles on the new Web site will include international stories of interest and relevance to readers in Brazil, as well as original content regarding Brazilian RFID deployments. The primary focus of the site will be on the technology's use in manufacturing, retail and logistics, though applications in other industries will be covered as well.
"Interest in RFID technology is growing quickly," said Marcelo Pandini, the senior manager of supply planning, fulfillment and country ops for Hewlett-Packard in Brazil. "Together, RFID Journal and the Center of Excellence will be a powerful force to educate end users in Brazil about the benefits of RFID."
