Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects, materials, machinery or personnel allowing for Automatic Identification and Data Capture.
RFID tags can be read hundreds at a time. Bar codes can only be read one at a time using current devices. You can also reuse RFID tags and they dont need to be visible in order to be tracked by a system. Depending on your systems using RFID tags in conjunction with Barcodes may be the right option, based on your product mix.
RFID allows for true real time tracking as products move around and in and out of your facility. Utilizing, geo-fencing, invisible perimeters that monitor staff, visitors, machinery, and product entering or exiting any set area of your facility; software is configurable to trigger alerts and provide transparency so everything goes where it needs to.
