RFID: Radio Frequency Identification

RFID (radio-frequency identification) is a form of wireless technology that is encoded in smart tags and captured by a reader through radio waves. Radio-frequency identification tags are used in many different industries including healthcare, manufacturing, inventory management, shipping and retail.

RFID and barcode technology are used in similar ways to track items, but radio-frequency identification tags do not require a direct line of sight to be read, RFID data can be updated in real-time, and barcode data is read-only and cannot be changed.

Radio-frequency identification systems consist of three components: 1. scanning antenna, 2. transceiver and 3. transponder. When the scanning antenna and transceiver are combined, they are referred to as an RFID reader. The RFID reader is a network-connected device that uses radio frequency waves to transmit signals. Once the tag is activated, it sends a wave back to the antenna where it is translated into data. The data is then processed by an application / software. This application is referred to: Inventory Management Software, Stock Control Software, RFID Software, Inventory Management System, RFID Inventory Control, or RFID Technology.

RFID has a lot to offer Retailers

The most common RFID application is for tracking and asset management. Asset tracking is one of the major ways that retailers use radio-frequency identification technology. It can be used to prevent theft and track items that are frequently moved. In retail it can be used to track items when they leave and enter the store. Radio-frequency identification applications gives increased control over inventory, it enables retailers to have real-time stock information. Not only does this enable retailers to have better control of stock and offer improved customer service, it also reduces labour costs.

WHAT IS RFID TECHNOLOGY
RFID technology, also known as radio-frequency identification, refers to the digital data encoded in smart tags captured by a reader through radio waves.

RFID READER SOFTWARE
RFID is a modern alternative to barcode scanning and combined with RFID reader software provides the retail owner with accurate and up-to-date data and statistics. Retailers can use the RFID reader software to: manage inventory, RFID scan encoding, RFID EPC tag voiding, product locator, stock taking and salesfloor replenishment.

RFID IN RETAIL
RFID in retail involves the placement of RFID tags on items that emit signals to RFID readers which are then processed by software, generating real-time results for stock taking, transactions, inventory levels, or individual customer purchase order history.

RETAIL INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
Inventory management is what keeps your retail store in running efficiently. Retail inventory management is either taken by hand or electronically. Managing your retail inventory electronically makes everything easier and faster.
