Why do companies use the EPC?
Companies use the EPC to facilitate the process of sharing information about their products and processes. Since the EPC provides unique identification of an object, business partners use EPC-enabled RFID tags to track individual objects as they move along the supply chain. Some companies also use the EPC to improve their internal production or logistics processes . For example, companies can use EPC-based RFID for tracking inventory or reordering stock. The efficiency gains companies make will eventually be passed to consumers in the form of better services.
