Warehousing and distribution centers have significant square footage and house critical inventories of goods and assets. Keeping track of finished goods and shipment routings are important to ensure efficient operations. In addition, timely and accurate deliveries and keeping your customer’s promise, are important to sustaining profitability.
Asset management and asset tracking helps organizations stay informed, in real time, of their inventory and assets. Know exactly what you have in inventory, what quantities,locations, and when it’s time to ship or replenish. Keep track of the assets used in your warehouse or distribution center. Whether it’s forklifts, pallet jacks, tablets, scales or tools, know where they are, how often they’re used,when they require maintenance and replacement.
RFID tracking technology provides a portable database that lives with the product throughout its entire lifecycle. This includes manufacturing dates, lot codes, components used in the BOM, expiration dates, potential recalls, warranty risks and for specific customer use (OEM). RFID tracking provides data that tells you where it has been, where it is, and where and when it needs to go.
