RFID Middleware, otherwise known as an RFID System Administrator (RSA) is fundamental in amassing the enormous amount of data collated at each point in the supply chain and transforming it into meaningful monitoring information.

The core duties of any RSA include managing the RFID system, cleansing and filtering the data and passing this data to to the retailer’s legacy system in a comprehensible format.

Crucially, this is also the point at which the raw data collated at various processing and tracking points is translated into genuine insights that can prompt informed action. All of the data is initially stored in data warehouses, and this needs to be processed by business intelligence tools that can interpret this data, transforming it into value-added information that will help key decision-makers take action to improve their processes
