Advantages of RFID

Inventory efficiency – Because line of sight is not required to read RFID tags, inventory can be performed in a highly efficient method. For example, pallets in a warehouse can be read, inventoried, and their location can be determined no matter where the tag is placed on the pallet. This is because the radio waves from the reader are strong enough for the tag to respond regardless of location.
Return on investment – Though the cost may be high at first, the total cost of ownership should go down over the years and provide a return on investment (ROI), if the implementation provides a significant method to improve business processes.
Vulnerability to damage minimized – barcodes can be damaged in many ways. Although, 2D barcode types such as Data Matrix can be read even when up to 40% of the barcode is damaged.
