Tapping into RFID for business efficiency

Tapping into RFID for business efficiency

The power of RFID

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has been around for many years and   used across sectors in many applications. Only recently has the adoption in certain markets skyrocketed, and for good reason. Research shows the value of RFID lies in its incredibly high accuracy, around 97-99%, along with offering businesses enhanced data automation, improved operational transparency, and immense time savings.

In particular, retail has seen accelerated adoption rates due to the many benefits RFID provides, while other industries have started to leverage the technology, such as beef, healthcare, and logistics cost savings, public safety and more.

With RFID, cannabis businesses can also benefit from the data automation, accuracy, operational efficiencies, and transparency this technology offers.

From streamlining inputs and accounting of assets, to decreasing capital costs in labor, RFID technology provides an efficient, dependable solution for inventory management. For example, thousands of cannabis plants can be accurately accounted for in a fraction of time and monitored remotely compared to more traditional methods, such as manual data capture or barcodes. From seed to sale, RFID is propelling the cannabis industry forward with remarkable efficiency.
