What is RFID? What Does an RFID System Look like?

RFID or Radio Frequency Identification is a technology that involves the use of a tag that is applied or incorporated into a product or asset to help identify and track the item using Radio Waves. There are many different types of tags and associated readers available on the market today. It’s now common for organizations to not only look for ways to eliminate field based paper processes but to also think past bar-coding as well.

Here is a good example, you employ a team of 100+ Sales representatives that are in charge of doing inventory counts at customer locations (Think big box retailers) and the inventory needs to be 100% be accurate.

Business Decision Making – Are you in the Dark?

Every organization is forced to make difficult decisions on a daily basis.  Business Managers and owners are trying to figure out what inventory to order, what equipment to purchase, what markets to enter, which jobs to bid on, etc. They attempt to gather all of the information available out of the many IT and Paper based systems the organization utilizes, and they render a decision.  BUT what happens when that information isn’t accurate, updated, or available?

Just because the information is not available does not mean that management doesn’t need to make a decision, it just means they have to make a decision in the dark.

What if your management team had the right kinds of information available 100% of the time? I bet it would lead to better decision making.
