Automated RFID Beats the Alternative

Some people prefer to drive a car with a manual transmission. It's usually cheaper upfront and having the ability to manually shift gears gives the driver more control over his vehicle. In this scenario, the driver has considerable experience driving a manual and knows how to properly handle it. But, what if an inexperienced driver were to take the wheel with little or no training?
Although using an automatic may be a little more expensive, it is more predictable and much simpler for the person driving it. It does not require the person to have any special knowledge and simply functions as one would expect it to. With this in mind, we designed our Item-level RFID system to work for anyone and everyone. In a world where multi-tasking is essential, our system is simple, straight forward, and automatic so you can focus on the other demanding parts of your job.
Our Item-Level RFID System consists of three main components: The Item-Level PrinterThe Pack Table, and the Palletizer Station. This week we are highlighting the Palletizer Station. Using any pre-existing shrink-wrap machine we can create an RFID hotspot which scans your entire pallet as it spins during the shrink-wrapping process.

 

 

WHY IT'S BETTER THAN A MANUAL:

1. It's much harder to make a mistake. 

 Our system will alert you to errors. Nox will refuse to pack a case or finish a pallet if the incorrect items have been added or if a case has been under-packed or over-packed. This prevents new or untrained employees from incorrectly packing shipments.

2. It saves time

Manually scanning each RFID label individually takes a lot of time and defeats the purpose of using RFID to begin with. With the palletizer you are simply make an existing process more efficient by adding RFID to it. It's less work for you and it scans twice as fast as a handheld!

3. It's cheaper in the long run.

While a barcode or handheld RFID system is cheaper upfront, a palletizer will save you money in the long term. It allows orders to be completed more quickly, which means your customer gets their products sooner and you paid faster. When time=$, efficiency is key.

See How A RFID Tracking System Changed This College

Tracking, ordering, and managing inventory can be a daunting task in any business, but especially in a college that has approximately 40,000 students. The University of Southern California (USC) housing office has to regularly keep track and maintain nearly 60,000 pieces of furniture and appliances at both on and off campus facilities. With rumors of items swapping designated areas USC tasked Simply RFID with the mission of figuring how to simplify their tracking process and put these rumors to rest. Simply RFID’s tracking solution did that and much more. Check out the link below for the full article and more details.

Why RFID?

Every wonder why the Department of Defense requires you to tag all of your shipments with RFID? The truth is that RFID makes the whole receiving process much easier and allows the DoD to pay it's suppliers significantly faster.

RFID is a great automatic data collection tool, providing end-to-end visibility of assets allowing much more efficient shipping, receiving, and inventory management processes.  Visibility includes "in the box" content as assets are tagged at the box and pallet level, sometimes even tagged at item-level.

Here’s how RFID helps the DoD:

  • Faster receipt and acceptance of assets. RFID provides instant verification of # of assets.
  • Enhanced inventory management. RFID is ~100x faster than barcodes.
  • Improved efficiency in recall of defective items. RFID allows simple tracking the source of assets.
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs. Thanks to RFID automatically tracing calibration dates.
