What do Radio Frequency Identification Device Strategists do?

Radio Frequency Identification Device Strategists are, quite simply, in love with the technology. They know that the chips can be used to monitor movement of people, animals, and products, but Radio Frequency Identification Device Strategists are also dreamers who may be full of thoughts about other ways the devices can be used. That’s why companies hire Radio Frequency Identification Device Strategists to think of new and innovative ways to use the technology.

A RFID Systems Architect builds the systems, but as the RFID Strategist, you supply the ideas. In a series of meetings, you outline the ways you want to use the technology in your company, and you ask the RFID Systems Architect to build it for you. When the system is done, you check it over to make sure it truly does what you intend it to do.

To come up with your ideas, you review the products your company makes. If you work in a retail setting, you look at the way your company stores items and tags them for sale. If you work in a hospital, you look at the way Doctors and Nurses clock in and out, and you observe how patients are tracked as they move through the hospital. If you work in law enforcement, you look for new ways to track people as they move from country to country.

There are many laws that regulate how radio frequency identification devices are used. You keep abreast of these laws by reading technical articles and attending conferences. The ideas you pitch must be in line with those laws at all times.
