IBM announced a comprehensive new service to help retailers and consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies harness radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for advanced product tracking and inventory control.

IBM made the announcement at the Electronic Product Code Symposium held in Chicago, IL, U.S., Sept. 15-17, where the company conducted live demonstrations of pallets and computer readouts that show how goods move through—and are automatically tracked by—the RFID system, and how payments and inventory are expedited.

According to the company, its offering, which comprises consulting and implementation services as well as specialized software, gives companies a phased approach to RFID. Phase I includes consulting and development of the business case for RFID, Phase II is a 12-week pilot, and in Phase III, IBM provides the full roll out of the system.

IBM said its offering is based on open standards and leverages existing technology investments by linking with the retailer's existing back-end inventory system. It is based on WebSphere Business Integration running on WebSphere Application Server, DB2 Information Integrator, Tivoli Access Manager, and WebSphere Portal Server.
