Why managing a warehouse with RFID tracking is easier
Jul 20, 2022
Adapting to shifting customer expectations is crucial to consistently maintain effective warehouse accuracy and efficiency. That’s why more companies are employing RFID technology that delivers fast data capture and inventory accuracy. Achieving both higher accuracy and faster data access in real-time to your warehouse can effectively bring warehouse efficiency to a rate that actually surpasses customer expectations. Research shows that complete order accuracy is possible with RFID, and that almost 70% of orders based on legacy barcode scanning solutions contain errors. As products become ever more diverse, the chance for error increases, even with automated data capture. Consequently, to avoid tagging products with multiple barcodes, many warehouses have chosen to deploy RFID tags which can hold up to 40 codes in one tag.
Furthermore, studies also show that 8 out of 10 of shoppers want same-day shipping, and 61% want their packages even faster. Therefore, without higher accuracy from RFID technology, legacy scanning solutions will cause more errors and prevent your distribution center or warehouse from achieving same-day shipping and meeting customer expectations.
Utilizing RFID technology solutions reduces errors and stockouts while consistently tracking customer demands to maintain accuracy. Managing your RFID technology and pairing it with connectivity solutions helps get the most out of it and boost real-time inventory tracking and faster fulfillment processing times.
