If putting data into computer databases with little to no human intervention sounds appealing to your company, radio-frequency identification may be for you. Radio-frequency identification, otherwise known as RFID, is a technological tool that reads tags, identifies information about the object the label is attached to, and enters this information into a computer database. This technology is similar to barcoding; however, RFID systems are able to store much more information than traditional barcodes.
Today, many retailers are promoting omnichannel retail initiatives in order to offer their services and products to more consumers on more marketing platforms. It’s no secret that retailers with growing omnichannel initiatives see strong benefits with RFID from the DC to receiving to the back room, and the selling floor.

Process automation and barcoding made a significant impact, but even the right mix of efficiency and business systems isn’t enough with today’s advancements.
Singaporean scientists are researching various methods to beef up the security capabilities of RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies as these become more ubiquitous.
A new offering combines RFID, voice recognition, cloud, and Web-based mobile technologies to provide multiple benefits to providers.
