Illuminating Dark Corners Within The Supply Chain

Cloudleaf Illuminating Dark Corners featured

Legacy tracking systems include RFID, barcodes or readers. Current real-time tracking systems are choke-point based and subject to varying degrees of interference, causing spotty coverage both inside and outside the warehouse (although many are not equipped to work outside the worksite). Mostly deployed on-premise, they are designed to stay within the company’s network. More restraint is created if the environment contains a lot of metal or liquid, where the system may not be able to scan or track the tags at all. A company that does manage to navigate these problems successfully is ultimately faced with another hurdle––current tracking...
