Office supplies manufacturing companies across Canada and the U.S. are responsible for the timely delivery of quality goods and dependable follow-up services. It is vital that, in this fast-paced, technologically savvy world that we live in, your organization has the tools to decrease costs, increase utility of your assets, as well as deliver products faster and more efficiently. Each day as a printing, ink, and office supply manufacturer, you face numerous challenges such as:
- Managing equipment, both produced and within the organization
- Tracking assets and personnel on and off-site
- Checking inventory of equipment and goods produced
RFID technology can help to automate these tasks so that your organization has the tools it needs to stay relevant, competitive and efficient.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Printing, Ink & Office Supplies Manufacturing Industry
We believe that your organization is working hard to maintain, manage and provide the best possible service for your clients. GAO RFID solutions for your manufacturing company will aid you in your daily functioning. Every day, global competition in the manufacturing space is forcing your organization to find new ways of increasing output while reducing overhead costs. Here’s how RFID can help your organization:
With expensive, up-to-date IT software and equipment, your organization is able to stay ahead of the curve. To ensure efficiency, it is vital that you have the ability to easily locate equipment and goods in your plant. Manufacturing equipment can be tagged with RFID Tags and then tracked and monitored using our RFID Asset Tracking System. The RFID Tags store the unique information of each item and can provide you with full visibility of their location and status of equipment in real-time. In addition, some manufacturing equipment require special certification and training in order to operate. By implementing our Access Control System, you can grant access to employees who are certified to operate sophisticated machinery; this keeps your workplace safe and your equipment in the hands of only those who are educated on operating them.
Monitoring Inventory and Produced Goods
Similarly, inventory and produced goods can also be assigned RFID Tags and tracked. Know how much inventory you have available for your production line to ensure optimum manufacturing levels. By having 100% visibility on your inventory, WIP is much easier to manage, and costs can stay efficient as you only order and use the inventory you need. Once your printing, ink or office supply products are finished product, you can continue to monitor these finished goods as they are packaged and prepared for shipping. Monitoring produced goods keeps your assets intact and business profitable.
GAO RFID strongly believes that the security of your organization begins with the safety of your employees. With numerous zones, areas and equipment in the manufacturing and distribution plant, management of staff and visitors to these areas are required to reduce the risk of potential harm to anyone. With heavy operative machinery and other hazards, it is vital that your organization is capable of controlling access to certain high-risk zone. Through our Access Control System and RFID Badges, you gain a fully automated way of granting and restricting access to certain zones for both employees and visitors. These RFID badges are also able to provide information to help trace and locate personnel on or off-site to ensure that their safety and security is guaranteed in cases of an emergency.
