RFID Tagging to Improve Inventory Management, Billing Accuracy, and Cut Costs

Challenge: Our client, one of the premier heart care hospitals in the country, needed an inventory tracking and management system to better track supplies, monitor expiration dates of critical inventory, improve the proper billing of lab supplies and consumables, and reduce total on-hand inventory.

Solution: The client implemented a completely integrated RFID-based inventory management system that combined RFID tags; Motorola RFID readers, RFID antennas and mobile computers; and Cenbion inventory management software.

Results: An automatic inventory tracking solution, from stockrooms to operating rooms to waste areas, has improved inventory management by preventing stock-outs, supply hoarding, and inventory shrink.

Our client has reduced on-hand inventory value significantly, from $3.2 million to $2.7 million. The streamlined inventory management system allows our client to make better purchasing decisions and take advantage of bulk discount pricing. In addition, our client has more efficient expiration date management, with proactive removal of expired inventory.

About the Solution Provider: Motorola Solutions (Formerly Symbol Technologies Inc.) is the leading manufacturer of rugged data collection equipment used in warehouses, distribution centers, mobile field applications, retail centers, health care facilities and many other environments.
