To prepare warehouses for rising customer demands and shipping costs, many businesses have begun to adopt RFID technology. Rising shipping demands are increasing by 20-50% each year, which could cause higher inflation rates in 2022. This is likely why studies also suggest that nine in 10 warehouse decision-makers expect to use more sensor-based technologies like RFID in the next five years. Without it, businesses could lose out on the ability to adapt to demands and streamline data access, which could prevent workflows from growing and productivity from advancing. That’s why RFID technology helps increase supply chain visibility to empower your warehouse with higher efficiency and smoother workflows that make it easier to adapt.
What real-time visibility brings into the warehouse
Increasing supply chain visibility and empowering efficient warehouse management starts with discovering how choosing RFID achieves these. IntegraServ and Zebra partner to bring RFID solutions that secure your business and implement real-time visibility with:
- Streamline data access and asset tracking with higher accuracy – Slow data capture prevents warehouses from achieving necessary visibility and efficient management. This causes slower operations, ineffective locationing of your assets, and higher expenses, which doesn’t help your business meet shipping costs. However, flexible and faster data capture is achievable with the right RFID readers. UHF RFID readers, like Zebra’s MC3300xR UHF RFID readers, empower quicker scanning and higher functionality paired with fortified durability and a simple design. This consistently gives your workers instant data access to valuable insights for better decision-making. Efficient asset tracking and real-time visibility help maintain an accurate inventory and improve the distribution process, which is how RFID helps improve flexibility.
- Maintain a higher level of asset tracking with faster RFID printing – Efficiently tracking your assets in real-time with RFID technology like Zebra’s RFID readers helps distributors achieve real-time visibility. Industrial RFID printers can also prevent errors and reduce out-of-stocks to improve inventory management and prepare warehouse operations. Achieve this with reliable tag and label printing from Zebra’s ZT600 RFID industrial printers. Flexible and reliable printing accurately prints RAIN RFID labels, tags, and cards and lets your workers print anywhere they need to. This implements adaptable workflows to prepare your warehouse.
- Dependable operations with rugged durability – Devices that are specifically built to adapt to warehouse environments can implement adaptable and more consistent warehousing operations. improve uptime and last longer, which ensures adaptable and consistent warehousing operations. Rugged devices like Zebra’s enterprise tablets and RFID-enabled scanners are equipped with a 5 ft./1.5 m drop specification and IP54 sealing to reduce downtime and last longer in rough environments. Secure and prepare your warehouse workers with advanced reliability so they can complete tasks without interruptions.
