The stock take process, without RFID requires separate time allotted for counting the inventory items and also more staff members occupied with the work. There are chances of mistakes when counted manually which leads to recounting process in most cases. This means spending more time. It may also require closing shop for a while.
With RFID, few staff members perform the inventory count and work is completed within seconds or minutes. Also, as stock take is automated, there are least number of chances of mistakes, which means no extra time allotted for recount. Plus, the shop remains open all this while, so you never lose a potential customer.
Sometimes it may happen that a customer is waiting to see a particular item. But you can not find it on the designated shelf. You may require some time to find the item but the customer may not wait that longer.
When you use RFID, you can check the item’s availability. With the last scan history, last location of it can be known. And with the help of beeping and by following digital graph, you can locate the item instantly.
When the box of items arrive at the shop, it may so happen that no staff member is free to attend it immediately. The stocking in of the items will happen when the staff spares time for it. Till then the items already arrived in the store will not be available for sale.
With RFID, all your staff has to do is scan the box, accept the list of items that will appear on the screen and your inventory will be updated and available for sale instantly.
The classic way at the time of sale is entering all the item details manually, which requires time for searching in the system.
With RFID, just scan the item for its tag and get all item details instantly.
