A leading manufacturer found itself struggling with labor-intensive and time-consuming inventory management methods while tasked with managing their inventory of 10,000 different tagged items. Despite efforts to transition to RFID handheld devices, they encountered persistent limitations, including the lack of real-time tracking and the continued need for hands-on involvement.


  • Time-consuming process
  • Lack of real-time visibility
  • Incomplete coverage
  • Manual intervention


To overcome these obstacles, the organization adopted a comprehensive strategy leveraging Accu-traq's RFID technology for improved efficiency and real-time visibility. Implementation involved initial tagging of all inventory items with standard passive UHF RFID tags and high-precision antennas were installed overhead to enable real-time location tracking. Subsequently, data from Accu-traq’s software was seamlessly integrated into the organization’s ERP, ensuring comprehensive visibility and control.


  • Real-Time Visibility
    • Accu-traq’s software allows the organization to track their tags in real-time, enabling proactive decision-making.
  • Comprehensive Coverage
    • With a 45ft antenna read distance and 1-3ft accuracy, the system provides full coverage, eliminating blind spots and gaps.
  • Hands-Free Operation
    • The Accu-traq system enables a hands-free operation, freeing up personnel for other tasks and increasing operational efficiency.
  • 3D Visualization
    • Provides a comprehensive view of the warehouse layout and facilitating better spatial understanding.

The integration of RFID technology with overhead pRTLS represents a paradigm shift in inventory management practices. By combining the strengths of RFID for basic tracking with the precision and real-time visibility offered by Accu-traq’s proprietary software, the organization achieved unprecedented efficiency, accuracy, and operational control.
