What is RFID Asset Tracking?
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) utilizes radio waves to identify and track people or objects. Wireless tags can be created that contain information that can be read with a device from a distance without having to be within line of sight or physically touching the item. These RFID tags can be placed inside packages, boxes, or on crates and can be read remotely.
RFID tracking solutions allow companies to monitor their assets more effectively and efficiently while identifying every location throughout their life cycle. Integrating RFID technology for asset management is a worthwhile and beneficial investment.
Popular Industries for RFID Asset Tracking
RFID asset tracking is a beneficial tool for companies to use to manage their assets. Not only can you track your products, but you can increase your efficiency in billing, reporting, and accounting.
RFID asset tracking is proven to be ideal in many different industries, such as:
- Electrical and plumbing companies
- Tool rental
Integrating RFID tag tracking solutions enables companies to track shipments, manage inventory, and be more efficient in the fulfillment of orders and lead time. There are many other applications that RFID technology can be used for, such as theft control and inventory tracking in just about any industry.
Ideal Assets for RFID Tracking
Companies that require tight restrictions, management, theft prevention, or preventative maintenance on their assets are ideal candidates for RFID asset tracking. Some popular assets that are tracked using RFID tracking include:
- Rental products
- Hand tools
- Computer equipment
- Manufacturing products
- Pharmaceutical labels
- Airline luggage tags
Benefits of RFID Asset Tracking
Utilizing automated tracking with the technology of RFID allows companies to locate lost items in transit and pinpoint their exact location for recovery. RFID asset tracking technology has many benefits over using traditional barcodes. The biggest benefit to companies is the ability to read the tag from a distance with a reader device. RFID reader devices can read multiple labels or tags at once instead of having to scan each item individually.
Companies that invest in RFID technology can keep real-time data on their products while consistently maintaining an accurate record of their inventory levels. RFID asset tracking technology is a cost-effective investment for businesses of any size.
