RFID Inventory Management

USA-based CONTROLTEK ISS serves retailers worldwide with theft-protection tagging and RFID tracking technology for RFID inventory management.

In today’s global arena, where retailers face the nonstop threat of internal crooks, shoplifters and sophisticated thieves, the need for cutting-edge security-packaging products and monitoring devices is vital.

Meeting this international need is the development, refinement and implementation of modern-day technologies, such as Radio-frequency identification (RFID). Embraced by New Jersey-headquartered Securotek, the scientific innovation is part of the company’s quest to remain at the forefront of the security-tagging products and services.

As defined by the U.S. government, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) refers to a wireless system comprised of two components: Tags and readers.

The reader is a device that has one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals back from the RFID tag. CONTROLTEK ISS provides the advantages of the technology to a variety of industries, such as retail, medical, industrial and transportation.

RFID tags can store a range of information from one serial number to several pages of data. Readers can be mobile so that they can be carried by hand, or they can be mounted on a post or overhead. Reader systems can also be built into the architecture of a cabinet, room, or building.

The RFID technology provided by CONTROLTEK ISS benefits retailers and consumers by easing the process of transactions, whether the purchase is made in a brick-and-mortar store or over the Internet.

This high-tech innovation can assist with security and tracking from the onset of manufacture, when RFID labels are printed and applied, and continue through delivery; stock-control; inventory-taking, and point of sale – where goods are registered at the checkout via RFID plates, and automatically removed from the stock list as a customer exists the shop; any items not registered at the checkout will activate the alarm.
