RFID Solution Reduces Material Transactions and Inventory Possession Days by 33 Percent

Challenge: Our client, a manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of fiber optic solutions, needed a reliable, flexible, and scalable solution to eliminate manual processes and move more material through the warehouse, while meeting the strictest of budgets.

Solution: Passive radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and RFID reader portals offered the optimal automated solution. Once deployed, the RFID system could capture raw material movement and transmit the information to the existing ERP system for precise tracking and tracing. They used an Alien® ALR-9900 Gen 2 Enterprise reader with Alien labels printed with a Zebra® R110 RFID printer.

Results: The RFID system eliminated the need to add more warehouse personnel or add hours to the staff's already tight workload. In fact, RFID completely removed the manual transaction reporting overhead, dramatically improving raw material inventory accuracy. For the bottom line, our client realized a 33 percent decrease in inventory possession days.
