If so, what types of systems would be available?
There are many tags and readers for sale, but there are not many RFID kits available. That's because each company's needs can be quite different.
What are you trying to achieve? If you want to simply stick an RFID tag on a carton and then walk around with a handheld reader and perform an inventory count, that can be accomplished. If you are looking for a more comprehensive system, in which each item you produce would be tagged, stored in inventory, picked and shipped with 100 percent accuracy, that would be a very different system with different requirements. If you are looking to track individual tools or assets, that, too, would require different tags and readers. If you could provide a clearer picture of what you are trying to do, I could make a more helpful recommendation.
