Wal-Mart’s Faltering RFID Initiative

I like the idea of RFID. I think the technology is cool. However, I always thought Wal-Mart would not meet its goals for adopting RFID.

I don’t know what made them think that all 60,000-odd suppliers would think it was a good idea and implement it within the timeframes Wal-Mart was proposing.

I have no doubt they will eventually roll it out to all of their stores and distribution centres but it will take much longer, cost more and the benefits will be less than predicted.
