The term RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. Tagging products with RFID tags allows users to automatically identify and track products in their inventory in a unique way. It takes automatic identification technology to the next level by allowing RFID tags to be read directly without a line of sight, and depending on the type of RFID, with a reading distance of several centimetres to 20+ meters.
RFID has come a long way from its first application of identifying airplanes as friend or foe in World War II.
Not only does the technology continue to improve year over year, but the cost of implementing and using an RFID system continues to decrease, making RFID more cost-effective and efficient.
