About Atlas RFID
Atlas provides companies with consulting and implementation of RFID systems using radio waves to automatically identify and track objects. These systems are similar to that of barcodes, only much more sophisticated. Since RFID is a wireless system that transmits radio, greater amounts of data can be read in one scan than with barcoding. RFID can aid in providing not only identification, but also location and condition of the item. This is extremely beneficial to improve processes and workflow thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs. While these systems are increasing in popularity, Atlas is currently the only Alabama company to offer these comprehensive services.
