Streamline your warehouse operations with real-time inventory visibility

Keeping an accurate record of inventory in a warehouse can be a challenging task. Manual barcode scanning or stock counting processes are time consuming and often error prone. Over time the information accuracy often reduces as stock is moved, shipped or delivered. 

RFiD Discovery’s real-time tracking system for warehouses and outdoor areas enables continuous traceability for assets and inventory such as goods, pallets and boxes without the need for fixed infrastructure.

No need for fixed reader infrastructure

By accurately tracking the location of inventory and assets, our warehouse inventory solutions enhance productivity, increases stock accuracy, and improves flow management.

With readers mounted directly onto materials handling equipment (MHE), our LiftTrak solution enables continuous indoor and outdoor traceability for assets and inventory without the need for fixed infrastructure.

How does it work?

RFiD Discovery’s inventory management solutions use different tracking technologies including RFID, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Ultra Wideband (UWB) to automatically record the locations of individual stock items, boxes or pallets, providing you with highly accurate real-time inventory information. Our solutions are completely flexible and can be fully integrated with other business systems. 

For our passive RFID solution, LiftTrak, innovative readers can be mounted directly onto your forklifts or other materials handling equipment to eliminate the need for a dense reader infrastructure in your warehouse. This means installation of the system is simple and provides a quick ROI.

Tags and readers

Each product, part, container, pallet or other item to be tracked is fitted with a tag identifying the individual item or type of item in a database. Each materials handling equipment such as forklifts or cranes are fitted with a specially designed reader. The reader includes multiple antennas as well as GPS and Lidar for outdoor applications.

Detecting drop locations

By detecting reference position tags mounted on each shelf location, the MHE-mounted reader determines the position of where an item is dropped. At the same time, the item tag is read and associated with the shelf location at the time of the drop.

Viewing location data

Location data is then sent to the central RFiD Discovery database via Wi-Fi or 3, 4 or 5G network. Where no network is available, data is stored until a network connection is made. The RFiD Discovery platform provides a choice of mapping and list views to show the location of tagged products and assets.

The benefits of automatic warehouse inventory management solutions

Increased productivity

Replacing manual processes of barcode scanning or even stock counting with automated solutions is far less time consuming, increasing throughput and productivity. RFID, BLE and UWB can capture multiple items at once from several metres away without direct line of sight. Having accurate information about stock locations available means that less time is spent searching for misplaced or missing items.

Accurate stock information in real-time

As human error is eliminated from the inventory counting process, stock accuracy levels improve significantly. The ability to monitor inventory in real-time means that location data is always up-to-date.

Reduced need for holding stock

Having access to accurate inventory data, means that there is reduced need to carry excess stock and just-in-case items. Having just the right amount of stock of each item means that the use of available storage space can be maximised. This also helps reduce waste of perishable or seasonal goods as only enough supply is carried to fulfil demand.

Improved customer satisfaction

Our RFID tracking solutions can identify whether the correct items are picked for despatch and therefore reduce potential shipping errors. As a result, customer complaints reduce and customer satisfaction increases. With fewer wrong products despatched, the need to handle customer returns is reduced, which again increases productivity.
