WERC Chicago: Will You Be There?

WERC, the Warehousing Education and Research Council is holding their annual conference for logistics professionals April 27-30 at the Chicago Hyatt Regency.

Barcoding, Inc. will be attending the conference with partners Honeywell, Motorola Solutions, Zebra Technologies, Impinj, and Jamison RFID, conducting interactive demonstrations of RFID via the “Be Connected” RFID Experience. Tom O’Boyle, director of RFID, will also be presenting on passive, low-cost RFID.

The interactive demonstration will allow WERC attendees to test the functionality of a passive RFID system. Each attendee’s conference badge will be scanned and linked to a passive RFID tag, demonstrating how RFID can be used to track and identify items in a warehouse or distribution environment.

Tom O’Boyle’s presentation, “Best Practices for Using Passive, Low-Cost RFID for Improved Asset Trackig,” will take place at 12:15 p.m. on April 28 in the Supplier Presentation Theater.

In addition to the interactive live demonstration and presentation, WERC attendees can also register to join Barcoding experts at the Barcoding Technology Integration Center (TIC) in Addison, Ill., for its inaugural Open House Week, May 6-9. During the open house, attendees can speak with the Barcoding team, test technology, and learn more about passive, active, and hybrid RFID solutions.
