The RFID tags are better than bar codes because these codes can be scanned in any orientation. In the distribution center, labor costs are estimated to be 80 percent of the activity, and by using RFID, the costs can be cut down while most of the tasks can be automated. The real-time update provides transparency in inventory and improves visibility. The scanners at doorway can provide accurate time and number of items dispatched with requiring a manual count. RFID can be affected by external factors disrupting the interface. The data collected from the tags requires a vast amount of storage to manage the data making it obsolete for smaller goods. With proper planning and foresight, the solution can optimize inventory management. The tools are provided to assist retailers in increasing sales; hence, they must be appropriately incorporated in businesses for positive results.
