RFID VS Traditional Methods

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is revolutionizing the way assets are tracked and located. If you’re still using traditional methods such as barcode scanning, now is the time to understand the difference that RFID can make in efficiency and accuracy. 

The benefits of RFID:

Faster reading

The ability to scan multiple tags at once means more efficiency and faster reading. 

Minimize duplicates

RFID allows you to identify each individual item, helping you minimize scanning the same item twice. 

Greater accessibility

RFID tags don’t need to be within a line of sight to be able to scan them; you can scan RFID tags from up to about 8 feet. The longer RFID read ranges allow for fewer disruptions to operations, especially in research and healthcare environments.

More accuracy

Traditional methods require manual reading, which is subject to human error. RFID relies on sophisticated technology. 

Better data leverage

RFID allows you to streamline your inventory process and tracking, and gives you access to better quality data. Better, enhanced data gives you more leverage when it comes to business decisions. 

At HCA, we utilize RFID technology to give you improved data you can trust. It also decreases the time and effort required of your team. However, what makes us different is that our team is actually in the field doing the work for you. If you’re ready to see the difference that HCA and RFID technology can make for you, reach out to us today. We’d be happy to get started.
