Whether it’s business to consumer or business to business, the challenges are the same. The costs associated with manual processes and correcting errors are high. The case is the same whether it is between your company’s own warehouses and stores, internal departments, from raw material to production, or similar. Also, it negatively affects customer experience when companies do not comply with promised delivery times.
Applying Automated Validation Station™ (AVS), based on RFID technology for your existing processes, enables real-time automated scans while goods are ‘live’ in your logistic flow.
Automated Validation Station™ uses data from your current system(s) to automate your processes. Combining these data with data from the applied RFID results in an automated tracking and validation system.
The solution contains three main components: A passive RFID tag, an RFID reader with antennas, and the AVS software component.
The RFID tag is the identifier to track the raw materials, items, packages, or pallets across the logistic flow. Unlike a barcode, the RFID tag does not need to be within the reader’s line of sight. And hence that the hardware can perform an automated scan.
The solution also carries a hardware part being either an RTLS RFID Portal™ or an RTLS RFID Process Reader.
The RFID reader receives all the data transmitted by the tag in real-time, then all raw materials, items, packages, or pallets are automatically scanned in your logistic flow.
After that, data are sent directly from the reader to our cloud backend platform, LIVE Logistics™, where the AVS component:
In LIVE Logistics™, the real magic happens when the RFID data are combined with data from your systems—performing a real-time linking between your data (production order, picking list, shipment order, or similar) and the automatic RFID reading by the installed RFID hardware.
The fundamentals of the solution are that it can easily integrate with your existing systems – whether it’s a separate warehouse management software or ERP solution. The Automated Validation Station is non-invasive, as it is stateless and solely relies on data retrieved from your existing systems combined with the RFID readings and applied logic in our LIVE Logistics™ platform.
By introducing RFID technology and the AVS solution into your logistic flow, you will be able to automate and seamlessly deliver value such as:
