Intel partners for new tracking system

Intel, SAP and German retailer Metro have agreed to develop inventory management systems using radio-frequency identification technology, the companies said Wednesday. Metro would use the systems to improve its ability to keep track of inventory, including merchandise in transit, in warehouses and in stores. Radio-frequency identification technology, which uses wireless radio communication to collect information about objects, is more effective than traditional bar code systems for gathering and updating data about products in storage or in transit.
