RFID enables full tractability of individual products from their manufacturing source, all the way through the distribution chain to point of sale. The system uses smart tags that contain electronically stored information and are automatically identified by RFID readers. Versus bar codes which only contain generic product information and can only be read one at a time by line of sight, RFID offers speed and efficiency; no line of sight required when using radio frequency, multiple tags can be read in one go or alternatively, individual tags can be discovered via ‘geiger counter’ also less formally known as ‘find-a-tag’. This feature enables you to home in on a specific RFID tagged item. This system is super convenient, especially in circumstances when your desired tagged item is lost, hidden or among many other RFID tagged items. Each RFID tag also contains in-depth unique information concerning that individual product.
