Why RFID is replacing barcodes for stock management and inventory
Readable data at all times
Affixed to a product, box or a pallet, the RFID chip contains the same SSCC code as the one printed on a traditional label. It offers a third reading source, more secure and more reliable. The RFID label is always readable, in comparison to a barcode label which can be poorly printed, dirty or damaged.
Huge productivity gain
Unlike barcode labels, RFID tags can be read simultaneously and remotely. This reading distance varies depending on the size of the antenna contained in the label. RFID gates can read from several meters away, whilst an RFID wand can detect the label from several centimeters away.
Smart stock management with RFID
With RFID, stock information accuracy increases from 80% (rate achieved with a standard barcode) to more than 95%.
You can access real time and detailed information on your stock levels. The software associated with the reading of the RFID tag, records the data contained in the chip, in your database and links with your Warehouse Management System.
Automation of entry into and removal from storage
With measuring points placed at strategic locations in your warehouse or logistics platform, you can automate the entries and removal from storage, and facilitate the location of your pallets and associated products.
RFID is the ideal tool for logistics professionals.
A quick and reliable inventory
RFID brings detailed information of your stock in storage: quantity, models, colour, size…
The simultaneous reading of several products with a RFID wand drastically lowers the time spent on inventories. This brings a rise in productivity and less hard work for your staff.
Your teams can then concentrate on sales and customer service, instead of stock taking.
You can also optimize your replenishments.
The customer journey before a purchase is more and more a multi-channel one. The client checks online the availability of a product, before going to the shop. What do you risk, if that specific item is not in store because of a stock error? You could you risk losing a client, as well as damaging your reputation.
To combat this choose a RFID solution. A simple and effective way to increase sales and improve customer satisfaction.
