Knowing where a product is on the floor at all times to avoid mislabeling or missing items, means having boxes properly stored in the warehouse or items properly documented before, during, and upon arriving at a shipment dock. These needs require scanning solutions that accurately collect data, record it into a system and store it for internal use at any time a team member needs to receive the information.Continue reading “Scanning Solutions to Avoid Labeling and Asset Management Errors”
Radio frequency identification is a set of technologies that allow you to automatically identify objects and capture information about them.
