Packaged RFID inks training deal with RFID4U

In a bid to capture more of the RFID services market for SMEs, RFID consultancy outfit Packaged RFID Inc will announce today a partnership with RFID4U, the RFID-consultancy training division of eSmart Source Inc.

By CBR Staff Writer

The deal builds on Packaged RFID’s recently announced joint venture with Independent Professional Management Inc, a Texas-based supplier of business applications consultants.

Packaged RFID would pay RFID4U to train IPM business-application consultants, who have at least 5 years’ systems integration experience, said Packaged RFID VP of alliances David Schnell.

As a result of our relationship with RFID4U, we will not have a consultant who isn’t an RFID expert, Schnell said. Existing consultants, as well as consultants on-boarded by IPM will go through training at least once while not on project.

Schnell said between 50 and 75 consultants would go through the training during the next 12 months. While most Packaged RFID consultants already have RFID experience, Schnell said they might have only worked a few RFID tag or reader makers. The training is designed to give them more vendor-agnostic skills.

Packaged RFID is initially targeting its RFID services to Wal-Mart Store Inc’s SME suppliers. The company plans to expand beyond Wal-Mart suppliers and in Europe at an unannounced future point.

Thankfully, RFID4U is multi-national and therefore can scale easily with our Western European expansion plans, Schnell said.

California-based RFID4U has previously trained workers at the US Department of Defense and National Institute of Standards and Technology.
