RESULTS

Since implementing Barcoding’s real-time RFID asset tracking solution, Accord Carton has realized new efficiencies and enhanced its pallet-tracking capabilities. Now, as a tagged pallet moves off the production line and crosses into the receiving area, the RFID reader picks up and stores the pallet’s data, creating a link between Accord Carton’s two databases and automatically updating the finished goods inventory. There is no need for human intervention, thus eliminating the likelihood of errors from manual data entry, while saving time. Plus, with RFID RealView, the company can instantly locate pallets, monitor inventory levels, and access a detailed history of pallet movement.

We’ve increased the accuracy of information and decreased the costs associated with obtaining the information pertaining to pallet movement,” said William Codo, owner of Accord Carton. We are recording our most accurate inventory levels to date.

Looking forward, Accord Carton would like to expand its RFID system, conducting further database integration, and even putting readers at its dock doors so that each individual pallet is automatically identified as it rolls onto the truck. Then, this data could be converted into a bill of lading.

For all future plans, Accord Carton will be able to draw from what it learned during this initial RFID project.

“When all the components of an RFID system are properly in place, the technology does exactly what is intended,” Mintari concluded. “However, one thing we learned throughout this process is the importance of securing buy-in from all the people involved in order to ensure a successful implementation.”
