What do you need to keep track of your assets, meet high quality standards, and provide customers with a stellar service experience, all day, every day, even when your team is tired? More barcode readers? RFID? Machine vision? Some other form of AI or deep learning tool?
The answer isn’t that simple, but only because this is never going to be an either/or choice. These technologies are friends, not foes. You shouldn’t be pitting them against each other when trying to prep your team to knock it out of the park during peak season – or peak hours. You should be figuring out how to pair them up so they can cover more ground.
“But budgets are tight. I have to prioritize my spend,” you might object. To which I would say, “There are a lot of creative new ways that engineers are piecing together barcode RFID and vision technologies to work as one system – one solution. So, you don’t necessarily need separate line items for each system. You just need budget for the one total solution.”
Curious to learn how this might work? Or where it makes the most sense to have barcode, RFID and vision technologies working together in your manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, retail, hospitality, healthcare, utility or even government operation?
