RFID solutions are increasingly being adopted by small and medium enterprises, owing to the growing trend of digitalization and automation.

RFID systems comprise of three major segments: tags, readers, and middleware

RFID Tags comprise embedded microchips and built-in antennas and are made up of plastic, metal, and waterproof materials that prevent them from getting tampered or damaged. The embedded chips enable information storage and detection capabilities for secure identification of a product.

RFID readersuse microwaves for detecting the tags when passed through these readers. The different types of readers include handheld readers, fixed readers, laser readers, and image readers. They are used in merchandise tracking, warehouse monitoring, and logistics movement tracking.

Middleware comprises of software and data management solutions. They enable control of an entire inventory management system. Middleware can be deployed on-premise or can be hosted; depending on a customer’s requirements. It also provides data storage and data analysis capabilities.
