Keeping your inventory up-to-date

Warehouses contain lots of inventory assets, ranging from hundreds to millions of individual goods. Managing the supply and demand of a warehouse can be a demanding and error-prone job, especially when goods arrive and leave in a high pace. Misplacement of items can have disastrous effects on your processes. In the most optimal situation you know of any of your items in your inventory: what unique item it is, on which shelf it is stored, if it is inspected, who checked it out last and how many are left

Turn your warehouse into a Smart Warehouse

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a modern technology that enables you to easily identify, locate and process your warehouse items. It supports bulk scanning and does not require you to physically see the RFID tag to do so. Inexpensive RFID tags or stickers are attached to the items, making them easily readable by scanners at your production plants, on your transportation vehicles and by hand scanners operated by personnel. Any lost or misplaced goods will be identified and located easily.
