Explore the critical role of RFID in combating loss prevention challenges within the retail industry. Join us as we delve into the escalating concerns surrounding internal and external theft, driving the need for technology to improve supply chain and inventory accuracy.

With the rise in crime rates, retailers are grappling with supply chain issues stemming from theft incidents occurring at various stages, including manufacturing, distribution, and transportation. These incidents result in significant losses, causing supply chain shortages and hamper retail operations.

By adopting RFID, retailers gain valuable insights into inventory movement, ensuring accurate stock levels and empowering them to meet customer demands efficiently.
