Inventory made easy. Could RFID technology benefit your business?

As the retail sector better understands the uses of RFID, the more it has become adopted by fast-fashion outlets. Many of the challenges initially faced by brands have now been overcome and with excellent results RFID is establishing itself as a 'must have' technology.

Unlike barcodes RFID tags can store item-specific information making them ideal for fashion retail. The information stored on tags can be very detailed such as size, colour, price, model number, batch and other data relating to the individual item. Not only garment specific information but also a product's journey from time in, time out, inspection, modification to destination. All of this information, on hundreds of tags, can be read through packaging and hang-tags from distances of several metres in a couple of seconds. With efficiency like this one would assume its a timesaving benefit but most companies are finding the increased accuracy of RFID technology is where the savings come in. A closer look at high volume sales and SKUs within the apparel and retail sector show the clear benefits in this type of data transfer. When you consider the age of the technology it's surprising how few companies have made the leap to RFID.
