Xiao,

RFID readers are typically connected to a local- or wide-area network. So you could connect dozens of readers to a network and have data routed to a specific PC hosting a database that matched the unique serial numbers in the tags to the items on which they were affixed, as well as the time and the particular reader that interrogated those tags. This PC would also run the software sitting on top of the database that would analyze the collected read data and generate reports.

You would need to discuss, with the company that makes your readers and a software firm, how to network the devices and have the data flow into the software correctly. Conversely, you could hire a systems integrator to put the network of readers together for you.
