Controlled distribution without RFID
It is not always possible to add an RFID chip to an article. Reasons for this are, for example, that the items to be provided are not washable or because they are personal protective equipment (PPE). Despite these factors, it is still possible to get an insight into your stock management and distribution. The big question is then immediately, “can I control and automate this process?”
Insight into your stock management
Often, something is taken from the shelf without any check and you trust the person concerned not to take too many items and to use them correctly. The first step towards control is to know your stock and have it updated automatically in real time by a management programme and automatic dispensing systems.
Registered distribution without RFID
From now on, your stock will no longer be on a shelf, but in an automated distribution system. LCT-Textilligence also offers its systems in a variant without RFID. In this way, every employee can still retrieve registered items 24/7. So this system not only checks the available stock, but also the usage of each employee.
Although the items do not have an RFID chip, we still know exactly which items are in the distribution system. By linking items to boxes in the distribution cabinet, the system knows at each distribution where these items are and how many are still in stock. All distributed items are registered to the correct person.
Each distributed item is seen as 1 credit. To ensure that employees do not take their entire stock or pick up items they are not entitled to, you can set the maximum number of items they can pick up in a 24-hour period for each person. When an employee reaches their maximum they have to wait 24 hours before they can use a certain item again. This controls the use of all carriers and prevents the misuse of items, which in turn can lead to high, unnecessary costs.
Through reports automatically generated by our software, you can view the usage of each employee on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis. This allows you to know exactly how many items are used by one or all of your employees in a given time.
So not being able to attach RFID chips to an item does not mean that you cannot have automatic recording or monitoring of your stock and usage.
