Tata opens RFID center in Chicago

The Chicago center will become the U.S. headquarters for the Indian tech services firm's RFID work.

India's Tata Consultancy Services has opened a technology center in Chicago dedicated to radio frequency identification, or RFID, the company said Wednesday. The company, one of the world's largest providers of offshore information technology services, began offering RFID-related services a couple of years ago through a lab in India. The Chicago center will become the U.S. headquarters for its RFID work, the company said.

RFID is an emerging electronic identification technology that companies are using to do everything from managing retail inventory to finding lost children at theme parks. Tata's RFID practice focuses on business consulting, architecture design, radio frequency equipment selection and installation, software development and implementation, and systems integration, the company said. The Chicago center also expands Tata's growing presence in North America, the company added. It now has more than 9,000 employees and 55 offices in the United States and Canada.
