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. The data is captured by a device that stores the information in a database which is then transferred through a communications interface to a host, where the data can be stored and analysed. Although there are many industries that can benefit from using RFID technology, we at Riot Insight provide solutions for retail stores, giving our clients state-of-the-art technology for inventory control, salesfloor replenishment, real-time visualisation of store stock taking and scan information, and RFID EPC tag voiding.
What RFID Technology do we offer?
We help retail stores effectively and accurately manage their inventory by using RFID technology with these 5 solutions:
The Mobile Store Inventory Management application is available on Android or iOS operating systems. RIoT Mobile connects to the RIoT Gateway or directly to the RIoT Cloud via WiFi or cellular data internet connection. The App is used with a handheld RFID scanner such as Zebra RFD8500 and features everything you need for:
- Inventory taking for salesfloor and backroom.
- Salesfloor replenishment (refill).
- Geiger product locator.
- Inventory reservation management (laybuy, holds, display, etc.).
- RFID scan encoding.
- RFID EPC tag voiding.
RIoT Encode is a standalone RFID EPC (Electronic Product Code) tag activation and printing application used to create RFID enabled tags within the store. This application allows our clients to easily print tags at time of receipt, return or exchange, or on demand. The Riot Encode application supports various tag formats, design templates and sizes to meet retailer & product needs.
Riot Insight Portal
The Riot Insight Portal is a web-browser based application that provides real-time visualisation of store stock taking and scan information that can inter-connect with external applications. This portal enables the retailer to access rich analytics, reporting and properly understand their retail stock operations.
RIoT Connect is our robust SDK (Software Development Kit) that provides real-time connection to any legacy system such as POS, merchandising, ERP, OMS and more. The application captures and records the Electronic Product Codes for all transaction such as: sales, returns, exchanges, transfers, adjustments, laybuy (layaways). RIoT Connect also updates your database in real-time without having the retailer manually duplicating ant of the steps.
This Gateway provides the benefits of continuous inventory reading via overhead sensor technology, and we at RIoT Insight can tailor a deployment model to meet your needs. The RIoT Gateway continuously aggregates data events from RFID Sensor Platform readers, RIoT Connect, RIoT Mobile & RIoT Encode and streams this data to the RIoT Insight Cloud.
