What You Will Learn

Product manufacturers and distributors are investing in IT infrastructure to keep up with competitors and mandates for smart supply chains. It is not surprising then, that RAIN RFID is quickly rising to the top of the list of technologies that drive supply chain efficiencies. RAIN RFID is a wireless technology that connects items, boxes, and pallets to the Internet -- enabling businesses to identify, locate, and authenticate each item. It’s one of the technologies that enables the Internet of Things and is used in a wide variety of applications, including inventory management, asset tracking and item authentication. You may know of RFID as the technology that is enabling retailers to gain visibility and control of their inventory. But have you kept up with how RAIN RFID is used in manufacturing and supply chains today? Smart machines in manufacturing use RAIN RFID to identify items moving through manufacturing and capture real-time data on cycle times, utilization, compliance and metrics that drive efficiencies. Smart supply chains send real-time data about the goods moving through their systems providing control and oversight so that the right goods arrive at the right location at the right time. It’s no wonder large retailers are starting to demand smarter infrastructure from their suppliers. Join this session to learn how RAIN RFID technology is changing the landscape of the connected supply chain. Learn from first-hand deployment stories where seemingly modest improvements - from providing visibility to source materials, to tracking items in transit, to speeding turnaround at the dock door, and to managing valuable RTIs - drove significant return on investment.
