RFID technology enables you to utilize Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to identify labeled or tagged objects wirelessly for automated data capture applications. RFID Tracking readers come in many varieties and sizes. Retail stores rely on the efficiency, predictability and accuracy of hand-held or stationary RFID asset tracking devices.
Modern stores employ scanners to read tags; from grocery stores to department or electronic equipment stores, they quickly provide information about inventory, store data for your future use, eliminate inventory loss and deliver accurate prices for the consumer. You will know how many size smalls are left in the hot-selling jeans and the frequency of their sales. As a business owner, you are empowered with this data for your decision-making. Up- to-date store inventory information is beneficial both to the consumer and the retailer. Eliminating human error and being more efficient than an employee’s counting and manual input of data, RFID scanners are a must for small, medium or large stores. As a retail owner, the efficiently and predictability of your RFID tracking reader is invaluable. There are a multitude of upgrades and solutions offered today.
Here are 3 reasons to upgrade your RFID scanner:
- Optimized distance and range: RFID scanners have a range of 5-30 feet. Depending on the size of your store and inventory, considering a more upgraded range can serve your needs. A better range can reduce the amount of time and labour it takes to scan inventory, as well as provide more accurate information.
- Take inventory more often: By switching to handheld RFID tracking readers, you can scan the store inventory and always have up-to-date information. With an accuracy of over 99%, you will know that the right products are on the shelf at the right time.
- To read multiple tags at a time: RFID reader technology is rapidly improving. Newer scanners that read multiple tags more efficiently will minimize your labour costs and optimize the accuracy of data. Ultimately, this knowledge will have a tremendous impact on your sales.
When embarking on improving efficiency, sales and cutting labour costs of your retail business, be sure that you are using technology that is best optimized to meet your retail needs.
