Quick Start Guide Part 2: Building an RFID Inventory System
When you’ve completed the checklist of hardware and software essentials from our the first step, you can now start building your RFID inventory system.
STEP TWO: BUILDING AN INVENTORY SYSTEM
There are three parts to building an RFID inventory management ecosystem: Commissioning RFIDs, scanning RFIDs, and building an RFID printing system.
Once you have all the pieces ready - CS108 handheld, Wave and Pogi software, and your RFID tags, you can start playing around tagging your assets.
We have an easy-to-follow guide here to start your journey in commissioning assets in Wave.
When you’ve already got the hang of tagging your new RFID assets, you want to start checking if it works. We’ve outlined steps regarding doing your first Inventory scan with Wave in this article.
Also, being that this is your first time using an RFID system, we thought it would be best to give you valuable pointers that will help you along with your journey. In this article, you’ll find some of the best practices when tagging or scanning items.
Building an RFID Printing System
The first thing you need when building an RFID printing system is an RFID printer. There are several brands we can recommend: Printronix, Zebra, etc.). But make sure that what you're buying is an RFID Printer. Second, you want a printing automation tool that will serve as your interface in uploading print label designs, etc.
Now that you're done with the set-up of your RFID system, we can now start integrating your inventory management system alongside other business processes. Feel free to continue reading on the 3rd part of this quick start guide.
