My business handles lots of documents and we are looking into making an investment for a tracking solution. RFID came to the surface, and I have seen a few different companies mostly outside of the US who offer a system: Server program with RFID scanner that can search up to a certain distance where documents are; also scanners at certain locations like library scanner but that can detect where a document is traveling.

So far I have found NJE Consulting in Canada; Intensecomp out of Singapore; IBM in China, and WhereNet which is in the US and Europe.

So we want to be able to track documents, or search for them and know their location specially if it leaves our file room and if and when it goes or leaves any number of offices. (Fancy idea; scanners at each office entrance) Be able to install a client in each computer for employees to do a search when necessary; and a feasible; budget friendly labeling system (purchase a roll of printable RFID tags).              Ideas; websites; and suggestions please. Thanks.

I had looked into this some time ago and it seems like it is definitely evolving.  

I don't know how much this says, but the US  Food and Drug Association was rumored to or actually does use  http://www.filetrail.com/WS_Home/Index.asp

Here is a link to that article mentioning it....http://www.rfidjournal.com/article/articleview/3809/
- for whatever it is worth.  

I think if you actually implement RFID successfully, you will be of a select few who actually get to play with it.
