Effective asset tracking can bring inventory numbers you can count on.

To adapt to rising shipping demands, warehouses must choose proper inventory management and effective asset tracking solutions that maintain an accurate view over where assets are located. Effective tracking solutions reduce errors and expenses with real-time inventory visibility. However, when left unchecked, studies show that inventory issues like stockouts, delays, and bottlenecks can inflate operational costs by 62%. Additionally, studies suggest that a mere 6% of companies report complete visibility of their supply chain. Without effective tracking solutions like RFID that minimize inventory issues and boost visibility, businesses could be unaware of lost assets and lost inventory, which ultimately sucks away expenses, energy, and customers. It is estimated that 34% of businesses have shipped an order late due to selling a product that wasn’t in stock, and this figure is expected to climb as product demand grows towards the end of the year. Simply put, without dependable inventory visibility, late orders and ineffective inventory management break consumer trust.

 

RFID still stands as a leading solution. Here’s why:

 

Growing inventory volumes cause out-of-stocks and delays warehouses can’t afford.

Zebra’s Integrated RFID portals, equipped with fixed RFID readers, reduce erroneous reads with a proven design equipped with specialized antennas that tune out cross-talk. Higher accuracy and efficient read rates boost visibility and empower companies to manage inventory and optimize workflows.
  2. Ensure operations with purpose-built engineering – Technology that is specifically designed for tougher environments reduces downtime and controls costs with more consistent productivity.
