RFID In The Warehouse

RFID optimizes warehouse operations with accurate inventory management and enterprise asset tracking. See how your warehouse can leverage RFID.

Achieve Accurate & Automated Operations with RFID in the Warehouse

Deploying RFID technology in the warehouse can improve speed, accuracy, and efficiency while also lowering operating costs. RFID technology achieves these goals by offering inherent benefits over other data collection methods, such as barcode and paper-based records.

Advantages of RFID include unmatched accuracy and visibility, higher degrees of automation, and active location tracking. More specifically, the technology improves warehouse operations by enabling:

  • Precise Inventory Management.
  • Inbound/Outbound SKU Verification.
  • Inventory Workflow Automation & Error Reduction.
  • Accurate Stock Level Management.
  • Equipment, Parts, and Asset Tracking.

Implementing RFID in the Warehouse

Getting started with RFID requires a little bit more than buying a reader and slapping a tag on what you want to track. Our solutions are strategically designed for your warehouse’s requirements, meaning we take the time to evaluate which combination of RFID tags, readers, antennas, printers, and software will work best for your application. Our trained experts will design RFID solutions that fit your unique environment and tackle your specific challenges.

RFID systems can be either mobile (handheld RFID readers), fixed (stationary RFID readers), or a hybrid combination. Regardless of the methodology, all RFID solutions will have the same building blocks.

What Goes Into An RFID System

Our RFID solutions use the right mix of tags, readers, software, and services to tackle your specific challenges.

  • Tags & Supplies

    Tags, labels, and inlays are the fundamental building block of any RFID solution. Between passive or active, a range of frequencies, label specsand environmental conditions there is a lot to evaluate when finding the right label.

  • Handheld Readers

    Gun-style, rugged handheld readers and good for read-intensive tasks in the warehouse and other industrial environments where a large quantity of tag data needs to be collected in a timeefficient manner.

  • Antennas

    Antennas provide the vital link between the fixed reader and tag, serving as the conduit that moves data back and forth. 

  • RFID Portals in Warehouse
    Fixed Readers & Portals

    With fixed RFID readers and checkpoints, you can quickly and accurately track large volumes of RFID-tagged cases, pallets, and items. They are ideal for use in high-density tag environments, high throughput applications, and on RF-challenging materials.

  • Printers & Encoders

    RFID printers give you the ability to identify, track, manage, and optimize, assets and inventory. Encoding (or printing) on RFID tags is the first step to having a successful RFID system.

  • RFID Software

    RMS Omega has partnerships with a variety of software vendors, allowing us to find the right inventory control or check-in/ check-out software for your application. RFID software provides a central database for monitoring inventory levels, location, and movement.

Top 5 Reasons to Use RFID in the Warehouse

The Key Benefits of Using RFID in the Warehouse

RFID technology has proven beneficial for facilities looking to make data collection more efficient, streamlined, and accurate. RFID also provides inherent benefits over barcode and manual data collection methods such as:

  • No line of sight required to collect data
  • The ability to hold 100 times more data than a barcode
  • Scalable read ranges with LF, HF, and UHF tags
  • Faster reading of multiple tags with one scan
  • Flexible tag positioning, perfect for reading every item on a pallet
  • Functionality inside and outside of the warehouse, even in harsh environment

By using RF technology, warehouses can execute workflows with improved speed, accuracy, and efficiency. With more efficient processes, facilities boost throughput in addition to lowering their operating costs. Keep reading to learn the top 5 ways to leverage RFID in the warehouse!

A Complete Solution From Design To Support

Every facility and business process has its own unique challenges. That is why RMS Omega takes a hands-on approach in managing RFID and RTLS implementations. Our process starts with understanding your unique challenges, needs, and goals – helping us create a solution that delivers positive outcomes for your business. Ultimately, we want to ensure that you receive a technology solution that exceeds your expectations and delivers a positive ROI. Our six-step process ensures just that.

Discovery & Design

Our trained systems & sales engineers will evaluate your work environment to determine the best plan of action for strategic technology implementation to solve challenges and achieve both short and long-term goals.

Project Management

RMS Omega has an internal team of solutions experts to oversee the successful design and implementation of complex and technical projects. We will monitor the project from the start and make sure everything is completed within an established timeline.

Statement of Work

The statement of work is a document that will map out our plan for implementation. This includes both hardware and software along with a description of processes after the system is complete. You will also receive a timeline for each phase of the project.


During deployment, we collaborate with your team to bring the proposed plan to fruition. Deploying each strategy often includes network design and implementation, staging and configuration of hardware, data integration, and staff training. Each of these necessary steps will ensure your team can hit the ground running once your system is live.

Analysis & Optimization

In an Analysis and Optimization, or A&O, we want to ensure your system is functioning the way it was intended. This is a process designed to optimize and enhance the performance of wireless coverage or system functionality throughout your facility and processes. An A&O is performed to identify and correct poor signals or reads along with incorrectly installed or underperforming hardware.

On-going Support

We are here to be an extension of your team, one point of contact for all of your data collection and RFID technology solution needs. To assist your organization in reaching new levels of productivity, you need a true partner, not just a vendor. That’s why we believe our support services are essential.
