September 28, 2021— At RFID Journal Live 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona, Trilliott and Schaeffler USA were awarded Best RFID/IoT Implementation in Supply Chain/Logistics Finalist, based on the deployment of SmartSITE for Supply Chain™ at Schaeffler. In making the prestigious industry award, RFID Journal Awards judges considered the following criteria.
How much value does SmartSITE deliver to the Schaeffler business?
Does it cut costs, reduce shipping errors or improve on-time deliveries?
Does it make employees more productive?
Does it enable the organization to deliver products just-in-time?
Does the use of RFID go beyond what other supply chain organizations have done?
Is the solution scalable and economically feasible?
Is the solution a significant improvement over alternatives?
While Schaeffler's SmartSITE deployment was a finalist, Booth Kalmbach, Trilliott Founder & CEO, noted, "the winner was Lockheed Martin. Lockheed’s use of RFID is extensive and impressive, but there’s a big difference in the Lockheed and Schaeffer situations. To get to this level Lockheed spent a decade and millions in hardware and internal software development. SmartSITE put Schaeffler on the map in a few months."
