How to Add an Extra Layer of Mobility to Your RFID Tracking System

Posted February 9, 2021

Given today’s changing customer demands, new safety regulations, and the e-commerce boost, managing inventory continues to be a struggle for most warehouses and distribution centers. As a result, RFID has remained popular across industries since it accelerates throughput while increasing accuracy rates in both the receiving and loading docks. To take RFID efficiency a step farther, we recommend integrating it into your mobile printers with the ZQ630 and ZQ630 RFID:

Why combine mobility and visibility?

Inventory management has been cited as one the top struggles warehouses face today, which means solutions simplifying inventory management can help sharpen your competitive edge. A few issues that further complicate efficient management are:

  • Sudden demand increases
  • Lagging stock updated that leads to stockouts
  • Increasing labor turnover rates that lead to high adoption rates for new technologies
  • Lack of real-time visibility

By empowering your workforce with mobile RFID devices, you are able to streamline crucial tasks such as data capture, data sharing, and even label printing, ultimately delivering real-time updates across every avenue your workforce uses. For example, RFID mobile printing allows you to:

  • Print updated RFID tags anywhere in your workflow in the event of sudden demand spikes
  • Decrease processing time by eliminating unnecessary travel paths
  • Deploy an end-to-end tracking system with easy-to-use devices for faster onboarding
  • Label incoming inventory immediately with RFID tags to start tracking stock in real-time
  • Lower employee density in printing stations
  • Increase mobility with lightweight enterprise-grade devices

Working alongside your team, Barcodes, Inc. assists with design, deployment and support services to maximize printer uptime, so your workforce can confidently manage inventory with tools that move with them. Contact us today for a free consultation to see where can implement RFID mobility in your operations.

Why Maximize Visibility in your Work-In-Progress Inventory?

Posted February 4, 2021

When creating lean operations, manufacturing plants often struggle with managing, incoming materials for future orders, known as work-in-progress (WIP) inventory. If left unchecked, unidentified WIP inventory can increase operational costs by at least 20%[1] while ultimately leading to:

  • Increased labor and downtime costs
  • Dwindling storage space
  • Difficulty tracking assembled orders
  • Missed opportunities as decision must be based on available space instead of demand
Better identification equals better visibility

To ascertain material identification for WIP inventory, Barcodes, Inc. recommends modernizing your labeling system. Industrial printers such as Zebra’s ZT610 ensure barcode legibility for both barcode labels and RFID tags, so your team can accurately identify materials as they move throughout the production floor.

By accelerating printing speeds, industrial printers empower teams to quickly tag incoming materials, securing proper storage in the correct location before materials leave the receiving dock. Furthermore, high-resolution barcodes facilitate more successful first-time scans, simplifying your inventory management process as materials move down the supply chain.

However, while industrial printers offer a good place to start enhancing operations, there are many more ways to continue eliminating inefficiency. As a Zebra Premier Business Partner, Barcodes, Inc. works closely alongside your team to design, deploy and support enterprise-grade hardware into your operations. Contact us today to see how you can pair printers like the ZT610 to scanners, mobile computers, and consumables to expand inventory visibility.

Ready to Dive into the Future of Efficient Inventory Management?

Posted June 2, 2020

With so many advances in technology, it seems surprising that many warehouses and distribution centers nationwide still rely on paper-based systems. Slow and error-prone, manual data entry can give you a skewed perception of your inventory, resulting in missed deadlines, lost customers, and higher operational costs. On the flip side, modernized inventory systems boost productivity by integrating:

  • Seamless data capture and sharing
  • Real-time tracking
  • Adaptable software that grows with your workforce
  • Proactive repair and replacement services that preserve uptime

Working alongside leading manufacturers like Zebra Technologies, our mobility specialists are ready to help you elevate your inventory management solution with unprecedented visibility that enhances your competitive edge.
