Retail Stores are Being Revolutionized with the Help of RFID

Posted January 4, 2018

8GS1-US-EPC-RFID-Chip-Hand-ImageRadio Frequency Identification (RFID) are helping retail stores across the country improving customer experience, inventory accuracy, and a way to present wider sets of products to customers who are a little more selective.

RFID Tags have the ability to hold information that identifies the products, its country of origin, materials used, production date, the handling process, and any other important information that took place in the supply chain. Some retailers are using RFID tagging to track products at all of their locations. According to a research study from the RFID Lab at Auburn University, RFID tagging can increase inventory accuracy from an average of 63 percent to greater than 95 percent. This helps enable speed and accuracy for consumers concerning fulfillment for two-day, one-day, or same day delivery. According to Kurt Salmon and the Platt Retail Institute, with RFID tagging, out of stocks can be reduced by up to 40 percent and increase profit margins by 60 percent.

According to the RFID Lab, manufacturers using RFID tagging will see an 80 percent improvement in shipping and picking accuracy, at the same time being able to increase the receiving time by 90 percent. This will allow retailers to communicate more efficiently with their manufacturers for expedited reorders, improved planning, and forecasting of products.

MIT Researchers Develop RFly, an Inventory Management Drone

Posted August 25, 2017

MIT researchers have developed a system that will allow small drones to read RFID tags from up to ten meters away, as well as identify the tags locations with an average error of about 19 centimeters. These researchers believe that this system could be used in large scale warehouses for both monitoring, to help prevent inventory mismatches, and to find the location of items to make it easier for employees to quickly meet customer requests. Safety won’t be an issue as these drones will be small and lightweight equipped with plastic rotors.

This will help many businesses as each year billions of dollars are lost all because of mismatches in inventory. Even the U.S. Army has had the problem of losing track of supplies.

“Between 2003 and 2011, the U.S. Army lost track of $5.8 billion of supplies among its warehouses,” says Fadel Adib, the Sony Corporation Career Development Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, whose group at the MIT Media Lab developed the new system. “In 2016, the U.S. National Retail Federation reported that shrinkage – loss of items in retail stores – averaged around $45.2 billion annually. By enabling drones to find and localize items and equipment, this research will provide a fundamental technological advancement for solving these problems.”

Watch how the system would work below.

County of Montgomery Uses AirTrack S1 to Manage Their Library Inventory

Posted October 7, 2016

The County of Montgomery library reached out to Barcodes, Inc. to get a recommendation on a barcode scanner that is capable of reading a Codabar barcode symbology for their inventory and check-in/check-out applications. Their current solution resulted in ineffective barcode reads and occasionally the user had trouble reading barcodes off of the books. Barcodes, Inc. was able to recommend the AirTrack S1 as their library barcode scanner. The S1 features a small, lightweight and ergonomic design with a flashing green light for good-read feedback. Its linear imaging scanning also gave the library workers better scanning capability to avoid ineffective reads.

In the end, the County of Montgomery library was satisfied with Barcodes, Inc.’s scanner recommendation and even more impressed that Barcodes was able to configure the devices before shipping in order to read and parse only the information required from the books. Their book accountability and workers’ productivity has improved drastically since the implementation of their new library scanning solution.
