UPM RFID has been ranked at the top spot of ABI Research’s latest Vendor Matrix, receiving the highest ratings in both innovation and implementation. Avery Dennison took second place, while Alien Technology placed third.
Smartrac Technology Ltd and LS Industrial Systems (LSIS) rounded out the top five. ABI’s Vendor Matrix is an analytical tool designed to provide an understanding of vendors’ positions in specific markets. Each vendor is assessed on the parameters of “Innovation” and “Implementation” across several criteria unique to each vendor matrix.
Vendors receive a score for each ABI Research–defined criterion under implementation and innovation. These scores range from 0-9 and are based on available information as well as ABI Research assumptions. The number of criteria for Implementation and Innovation may vary; however, this does not impact vendor ranking.
