RFID technology, despite being costly is replacing the conventional barcode technology. The businesses worldwide are making this transition because of the many benefits of RFID over the conventional identification methods.Barcode-vs-RFID

  •  Line of sight is not required.
  • The tags can withstand harsh environments.
  • Long read range.
  • Portable database
  • Multiple tags can be read/written.
  • Tracking people, items, and equipment in real time.

For example, RFID enables Wal-Mart to improve the efficiency of its global supply chain management through greater supply chain visibility and more accurate ordering decisions. Just in Time (JIT) ordering enables Wal-Mart to decrease the costs associated with inefficient inventory decisions and handling. Ordering and sales are more closely aligned, decreasing the intensity of Bullwhip effects.

 RFID and Logistics

Asset Tracking had never been that easy. With the use of RFID technology, inventory management as well as service and maintenance functions can be optimized. Information is available with the asset and helps to control and optimize a process chain. The user can instantly determine the general location of tagged assets anywhere within a facility with the help of RFID technology. Control point detection zones at strategic locations throughout the facility allow the user to define and monitor logical zones.

 RFID and Livestock Management

Livestock tracking using RFID tracking can help in  disease control and  theft prevention and maintaining origin records of animals.

RFID and School Management

The concept of a single RFID card system has attracted many schools to embrace this newest technology. From student tracking to canteen management, the RFID card encapsulates all the major school operations.

 Use of RFID in Libraries Worldwide

According to a survey done by Primary Research Group from the sample data collected from different parts of the world

  • 82.86% of public libraries plan to install self-checkout machines, compared to 44.83% of academic libraries
  • Libraries in the sample saved a mean of $8,280 through better theft control due to the implementation of RFID
  • In libraries that employ RFID, a mean of 85.27% of all physical items are tracked with this technology, with some libraries tracking 100% of their collections this way
  • On average, libraries paid $0.32 per piece for individual RFID tags

If the library has already employed RFID, what percentage of physical material items (books, DVDs, etc) are tracked by RFID?

RFID and Events Management

Dubai is amongst the most happening places in the world. It is the host to many exhibitions, conferences, concerts,


sports and other public events. In order to give a better feel to the delegates and HNI’s, many event organizing companies have made a move
to RFID technology in the form of RFID enabled badges or wristbands. This does not only give a red carpet experience to these high profile individuals but can help in marketing offerings, enhance attendee analysis, and add value to lead generation and sales activities by tracking the movement of attendees.
