Descartes System Group Inc. has announced a radio frequency identification Pilot Program designed to help companies estimate costs and benefits of deploying RFID across their supply chain.

The program features site evaluation and laboratory testing of RFID equipment, implementation of RFID equipment through a portion of a company's supply chain, and live monitoring of RFID-enabled orders, inventory and assets during the field test period. It finishes up with an assessment of business process improvements and RFID infrastructure costs uncovered during the pilot.

The program is currently available in North America and Europe.
