RFID vs. BAR CODES
By automating data collection, RFID technology vastly reduces human effort – and error. Because they each use label-type tags, many people think that bar codes and RFID are similar. In reality, RFID is more powerful and efficient. Line of sight and single read limitations prevent bar code technology from providing substantial gains in efficiency. Radiants's system also reads bar codes, enabling customers to fully upgrade to RFID at their desired paces.
HOW IT WORKS
- RFID technology does not require line of sight and can read multiple tags at one time.
- An RFID reader “sees” all identified tags within its adjustable range with the click of a button, returning asset information to the database.
- Tag information is cross-referenced against the assigned physical location.
- Assets are recorded as present, missing or relocated.
Virtual Asset Tracker is the perfect solution for the challenges faced by anyone in charge of a large number of assets. It enables users to accurately and efficiently manage the physical locations of inventory items.
