With RFID technology, one can take inventory for warehouses, shops or movable goods while saving time and resources, let's see what it is, how it works and what benefits it brings

Taking a warehouse inventory is a common activity in many companies. But exactly what does it mean to take a warehouse inventory and how is it done? Put simply, it means sorting and classifying the assets that make up the inventory. These can be objects, as in the case of commercial activities, or even movable property, as in the case of public administration.

Producing an inventory, grouping items according to characteristics or categories, is fundamental for any type of business because it will provide a complete list of the goods present.

However, taking a warehouse inventory, an inventory of clothing and other types of shop, or an inventory of movable goods, requires that resources be invested, both in terms of money and time. In fact, companies often lose entire days, even several times a year, in order to take an inventory, employing many workers in this activity.

Thanks to the spread of new technologies, however, it is now possible to produce a permanent, safe and effective inventory in a very short time and using fewer resources, thanks to RFID technology.

RFID technology makes it possible, for example, to have all the stocks in the warehouse available at all times, which today, more than ever, in the era of digitisation, is essential to optimise work and productivity.

But let’s look in detail at what RFID technology is and how it works

Inventory with RFID technology: all the advantages

As we have seen, RFID technology makes it possible to greatly simplify all logistics operations and is therefore particularly suitable for certain types of inventory, including

– shop inventory
-warehouse inventory
– movable goods inventory

On the other hand, anyone with a business knows very well how important it is to have an up-to-date inventory for good goods management and to be more productive.

With an inventory with RFID you will have many advantages, including:

– remote reading, the RFID tag communicates with the reader even if it is placed many metres away. In addition, it allows tags to be read even if they are contained, for example, inside packaging boxes, greatly simplifying the process
– unique identification, the tag affixed to an object is unique and unrepeatable, so it can be traced quickly and with no margin for error
– reading capability, RFID technology allows hundreds of products to be read simultaneously
– data writing and reading, using the RFID tag it is possible to rewrite, read and modify data several times if necessary. In addition, it is possible to manage this type of operation with a password
he RFID technology can be integrated into the excel inventory with a bluetooth connection

To summarise, RFID technology makes it possible to verify, read, and store all the movements of goods, enabling, in effect, a permanent inventory that is also updated every day with precision.

RFID is widely used, for example, for the inventory of clothing shops or any other business that has a warehouse for goods. However, it is also increasingly used to take inventory of movable assets, such as in public administration.

RFID technology is a transversal solution, therefore, and among the many advantages it offers is certainly that of being able to take stock inventory very quickly and consistently, saving time and money
