How Is RFID Different From Bar Codes?
What are the key differences?
That's a bit like asking how a car is different from a horse-drawn buggy, or how an airplane differs from a hot-air balloon. Here are a few of the main differences:
• Radio frequency identification is 25 times faster than bar codes when it comes to conducting inventory counts.
I could probably go on, but I'm sure you get the point from the above examples. Bar codes are great. They have done a very good job for grocery stores and other retail outlets. But just as the horse-drawn buggy (which was also great for its time) was replaced by the car, it's time to move on to something that is far better.
