This is a great article by Claire Swedberg on RFID deployment at Continental. It is one of the key deployments based on BizTalk RFID. They have deployed Xterprise solutions for automatic the receiving process and for tracking returnable transport items(Totes). They use Motorola and Alien devices to enable the whole system.
Continental Automotive uses an Xterprise RFID system on a Microsoft BizTalk platform to track incoming electronic parts in reusable totes as they pass from third-party logistics providers to the manufacturer

American Apparel is one of the fastest growing apparel retailer. I have visited their store, their stores are young and vibrant. American Apparel is also a leader in using new technology like RFID as strategic advantage in the industry. They are growing fast and they need a partner that can help sustain and increase the growth.
We at Microsoft and Xterprise(Microsoft RFID partner of the year) were able to share our ideas and solutions with American Apparel. I think with this announcement American Apparel has chosen us as the partner that will help them grow. We know there is long way ahead for us together.
Microsoft + Partners have a great advantage over any competitor. The reason why we are hands down the best choice for retailers or anyone else is we divide and conquer. Following is how we do that
This divide and conquer strategy allows Microsoft + Partners to keep costs low and help large number of customers at same time. I hope other retailers and companies looking at RFID will look at this and give us an opportunity to talk to them and share our ideas.
