So RFID is a technology that’s been around since at least the 1970s! But until recently it’s been too expensive, and too limited, to be practical for many commercial applications. But now some solutions are affordable, and they can solve many of the problems associated with barcodes such as having to be read at the line of sight, usually at distances below one meter.
How precise must location data be? Do you need to incorporate barcoded assets into your asset register as well? Start small and generate a proof-of-concept that can be expanded to more complex workflows.
Start with one challenge in your organisation or start with tracking high-value portable asset classes/types that may deliver the greatest ROI on your efforts.
