4. It Mitigates Risk, Theft and Loss With Accountability
Employees in the warehouse, especially picking operators, are among the most important keys to reaching performance benchmarks. RFID asset-tracking solutions allow warehouse operators to easily and quickly gain access to inventory location and other information. This helps them to keep track of items replenished, distributed, stored and moved.

Such visibility doesn't leave any room for foul play or error while you move your warehouse to a different location. With the ability to track the movement of every asset in your warehouse, you can ensure that all items are being accounted for, and thus mitigate costly risks like counterfeiting, theft, loss, misdistributions, misplacements and recalls. Even if you are not relocating your warehouse, it is vital to avoid such mistakes, as they not only take up time and money to be fixed, but can cause you to incur heavy fines, lawsuits and loss of clients.

Moving into a new warehouse can pose risks of loss and theft.
In addition, employees will be more careful with all of your products, since they will know they are being patrolled. With complete visibility and real-time information about assets and inventory, you can move your warehouse in a more organized manner without worrying about loss and theft.

Did you know? The FDA has even approved the use of RFID technology to track blood.

With an RFID-enabled tracking system, the entire relocation process, from planning through execution to completion, becomes smoother. This directly impacts your business, as it makes efficient use of your personnel's time, and it brings your business back online with minimal disruption.
