The technology allows for organizations to better forecast product demand in the business sector (Pokharel, 2005). Additionally, RFID’s are used to assist organizations with accomplishing stock level and expense goals by providing information used to help manage and implement logistics. RFID innovation is currently used in organizations such as Wal-Mart to assist in tracking products and provide real-time data to prevent counterfeiting and to monitor stock levels(Pokharel, 2005). RFID technology is equally important for privacy rights of individuals and global logistics. However, RFID plays a more common role in logistics than for individuals.
