With my current focus on providing real world (read: ready to use) RFID applications to clients, it often becomes more necessary to take an existing solution and replicate it rather than start from scratch or provide lots of innovative thinking.

As far as I am concerned, this isn’t always cool, but usually necessary.

Market and competitive forces demand that our solution works well in the least amount of time. The overriding factor here is the inter-operability with existing solutions installed at manufacturing, distributor, retail and marketing partners in the supply chain.

This directly translates into fewer opportunities to innovate and/or think outside the box.
