Item Level RFID Initiative receives $400K-plus sponsorship from Impinj, Motorola, three others

The Item Level RFID Initiative received a major shot in the arm this week when Impinj, Motorola, Tyco, Avery-Dennison and Checkpoint Systems all signed on as Platinum sponsors of the initiative. The exact amount kicked in by each firm wasn’t available today, but it is believed the checks from the five RFID vendors total well into the high six figures.

The Item Level RFID Initiative, a consortium of retailers (Wal-Mart, Macy’s Kohl’s, Dillards and more) and industry vendors, was unveiled in November to jump-start the use of item level tagging in retail. The group, which operates under the wing of standards group VICS, operated on a budget of about $40,000 last year. Behind its new Platinum sponsors, that budget will be expanded 10-fold this year and next, allowing the group to accelerate development of guidelines and standards, as well as promote the group to a broader set of retailers and vendors.

ILRI will also be seeking Gold and Silver sponsorships. The move makes sense for suppliers like Impinj and Motorola, who have the most to gain by a faster adoption curve.

In other ILRI news, the Retail Council of Canada has become a member of the group, representing the first foreign interest to be granted membership. Retailers like Gerry Weber in Germany have already reached out to join the group. ILRI will also launch its own web site in July. Stay tuned to RFID 24-7 for more details.
