Radio Frequency IDentification is a technology that uses radio signals to read tags placed on objects.
Readers can be handheld or fixed. They send out radio waves seeking information.
Tags attached to or embedded in an item carry an ID signature and other information about the item.
RFID asset tracking systems are used to track and monitor inventory all over the world. As global commerce becomes more complex, RFID inventory tracking can help companies keep pace.
RFID tags do not need to be scanned like a barcode. Product tracking can happen at a much farther range, saving a significant amount of time.
Companies can better track their stock, leading to less shrinkage and profit loss during transport and storage.
When companies know exactly how much inventory they have and how quickly that inventory is moving, they don’t need to purchase as much buffer stock, helping them attain a leaner operating budget.
Barcodes typically only tell an item’s type. RFID tags can store much more data, allowing companies to track individual units.
Since RFID tags don’t need to be seen, they can be placed anywhere on a product, giving companies greater flexibility.
RFID trackers can read RFID tags anywhere in a warehouse, making it easy for employees to quickly and easily find needed items.
Employees no longer need to engage in labor-intensive barcode scanning. Now, employees can find any products without long, time-wasting searches.
Companies need to know how much inventory they have, where that inventory is, and when new inventory will arrive. RFID asset tracking makes these tasks easy, helping businesses from Amazon to your local bookstore keep track of their inventory.
