Collecting Data Fast with Handheld RFID Readers
Handheld readers can read RFID tags faster than a barcode scanner can read a barcode. So, handheld readers will save you time and money.
How Handheld Readers Work
Handheld RFID readers have an antenna embedded inside of them allowing them to be mobile. If the reader is pointed at many items that have an RFID tag, the reader will be able to read all of those tags at once. This has many benefits including but not limited to:
- Quick and accurate data collection
- Ability to locate misplaced items
- Determine when stock is running low
