NCR and Matrics Sign RFID Services LOI

Friday 31 October 2003 14:30 CET | News

NCR Corporation and Matrics have signed a letter of intent to provide consulting and support services for retailers deploying RFID technology.

The letter of intent provides the basis for a relationship that will facilitate the adoption of RFID in the retail environment. NCR will provide assessment and integration with existing systems, site analysis and equipment verification, installation, maintenance and help-desk support. Matrics will provide training for service personnel, as well as service parts and contacts for purchasing replacement equipment. A founding sponsor of EPCglobal (formerly the Auto-ID Center), NCR is currently participating in a test program designed to learn more about the potential for retail solutions based on RFID, including options for protecting consumer privacy, as the technology works its way to item-level tagging. In addition to its work with EPCglobal, NCR creates and tests proof-of-concept prototypes for RFID and other advanced technologies in its Atlanta-based Retail Technology Center.
