During the implementation, upgrade and disposal of RFID-applications different tasks have to be performed. Since most companies outsource a great share of these activities, there is profit potential for service providers. The article introduces a typology for RFID-enabled and -supported services as well as support services. Potentially all sub processes can be outsourced to service providers. The RFID-process landscape presented in this article can help the users to identify processes for outsourcing.
