Improve and Optimise Business Processes using RFID Technology September 28th, 2020
The supply chain and distribution industries are well aware of the hurt they’ve experienced during the chaos of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Where a normal distribution centre would experience delays in receiving and shipping, this novel virus required many suppliers and sellers to shut down their facilities and lay off employees to keep safe and halt the spread of the virus. As local and regional businesses are beginning to open up their doors again for operational activity, there is much to make up for, and RFID possesses the capability to correct and mitigate potential errors in business processes from here on out.
Equipping employees with RFID functionalities promotes a wealth of data insights, for new efficiencies are achievable, for once. Thanks to sensor technology, warehouse managers are continually tracking their asset attributes such as location, contents, physical condition, and so much more. RFID provides a digital view of physical operations and create a “system of reality” that allows warehouse employees to capture and manage critical information and logistical operations. Such benefits include: Improving Inventory Management, Locating Items Faster, Reducing Damages and loss of Shipments/Assets, and the list could go on and on.
RFID hardware can come in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to Seagull Scientific and Moinsa, partnering together, their use of devices consisted of an Arched Reader, that could analyse items passing underneath it. When each packaged item crosses its path, the reader can verify that the box’s contents are correct, ensuring the overall quality of the shipment. In addition, this service has optimised the performance of its human resources, since verification task typically require between 5-10 minutes per employee and package, but now with RFID, a check can be completed in less than ten seconds.
