NEW YORK-RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID), and EPCglobal North America, a not-for-profit member organization supporting the adoption of Electronic Product Code (EPC) technology, announced that they will jointly produce an "EPC Compliance and Benefits Training" seminar in conjunction with RFID Journal LIVE! 2008, RFID Journal's sixth annual conference and exhibition, being held April 16-18 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
The new compliance training seminar, which will take place on April 16, is designed to educate suppliers to Sam's Club and other major retailers, who need to learn not just how to place EPC tags on their shipments, but also how to integrate their tagging systems with their back-end inventory management systems to save time and labor and to use the EPC data provided by retail partners to reduce out-of-stocks, increase promotions execution and drive business value.
Suppliers to Sam's Club will meet with Sam's Club representatives to discuss the retailer's EPC initiative prior to the start ofthe seminar and they will have the opportunity to attend the EPC Compliance and Benefits Training seminar for free. Other companies that wish to attend can select the seminar as one of 11 pre conference seminars.
The seminar will explain how to:
• Encode tags and associate EPCs with the right product;
• Place the tag on a case in the place that will maximize its chances of being read;
• Integrate an EPC tagging system with a back-end inventory management system;
• Use EPC data to improve supply chain operations.
