Has RFID Finally Found Its Place in Retail?
RFID technology is finally taking off in retail—in fact, it's being put to use in a variety of ways, some of which might just surprise you.
Taking Convenience to a Whole New Level
When used for automated checkouts, RFID solutions are able to detect shoppers' purchases (without the need for individual item scanning), display the total to pay and then record their payment by cash or card, before finally issuing a receipt. The entire checkout process takes place within just a few moments and with no intervention from the sales staff.
Who Needs Cash When You Can Pay by Radio?
As self-checkout adoption increases, it's hardly stretching the imagination to assume that before long, dynamic price tallying and cashless payment processes will mean shoppers won't need to go near a physical checkout counter or pay station. In fact, they probably won't be able to find such a thing even if they wanted to.
Is Your Retail Business Ready for RFID?
Will your retail enterprise be implementing RFID technology anytime soon—and, if so, what applications appeal the most? Do you see tagging as a good way to beat counterfeiting, or would you worry about the risk of cloned tags?
