In order to enable all sales channels to provide customers with the best services and offer appropriate products at the right time and place, strategic inventory management has become a major issue for every omni-channel participant. RFID technology combined with inventory management software, every product has an unique code, it is easily to realize real-time inventory control, check which products need to be restocked at any time, and to ensure goods can be accurately sent to the corresponding stores or channels on time. For retailers, RFID is no longer just a good thing, but a real must-have.

Four factors to consider when choosing RFID tags in the retail industry

Nowadays, many products such as denim, cosmetics, footwear and medicine, etc. have been widely used RFID tags. Some organizations, like Auburn University ARC-RFID Lab has issued RFID inlay and global GS1 TIPP level classification certification. And EECC’s TACTA has also greatly improved the testing and certification of RFID tags in different application fields. For example, retailers and garment manufacturers have been able to purchase certified M RFID tags that can be used for garment and footwear.

2, Where will the products be traced and tracked

When selecting RFID labels, environments conditions should be taken into consideration, such as density, metal content, liquid or glass and so on. RFID tags are very common in retail stores, factories and distribution centers. Additionally, we must also consider how dense the product is packed, as well as the expected reading range etc..

3, RFID chip selection and encryption

RFID chip manufacturers keep improving the sensitivity of chip reading and writing, while also increasing production capacity. Chip selection, antenna design and system level testing will ensure that qualified RFID tags are used in different applications.

In apparel, retail and consumer industry, item-level tracking has become an automated process in the source manufacturing process or distribution center. Using RFID tags with encryption is conductive to centralized management and quality consistency.
