...Microsoft's RFID framework will be encapsulated within enterprise applications, such as Microsoft's Axapta 4.0, due next year. The company also will offer its RFID object model and APIs to device manufacturers and ISVs—allowing them to plug into Microsoft's RFID framework and enabling out-of-the-box inventory tracking on the Windows platform, he said.
A number of partners in particular vertical industries stand to benefit from Microsoft's RFID solution, one service executive said. "This is something that end users are becoming very interested in, and it could be a good service offering for partners who service manufacturer and retail markets," said Paul Freeman, president of Coast Solutions Group, Irvine, Calif. Ken Winell, CEO of Econium, a Totowa, N.J., subsidiary of Visalign, agreed: "Lots of clients are interested in RFID, especially around the point-of-sale stuff," he said. "We are doing some really cool things with distribution and delivery solutions, so the Microsoft RFID [offering] will complement and extend that."
