Supply chain software vendor i2 Technologies Inc. has outlined its plans for radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The company has mostly remained on the sidelines as its competitors announced solutions for this burgeoning market.

i2’s new RFID partnership program is aimed at helping customers use RFID in closed-loop supply chain management systems. Initial partners include GlobeRanger, IBM, Informatica, Sun Microsystems, and webMethods.

Partners will work with i2 to integrate RFID technology with i2’s closed-loop supply chain management solutions. The partners can also integrate their RFID middleware with i2’s supply chain operating services (SCOS), providing integration with all of i2’s solutions.

The company says its Master Data Management (MDM) product can support RFID by helping control the introduction of new items, managing data synchronization, and integrating product information into existing systems and processes.
