EMS Technology Solution’s IQ Genius Handheld RFID Reader works seamlessly with Operative IQ’s Inventory Management system to reduce labor costs while improving the accuracy of supply room inventory counts, expiration date tracking and lot number management.
Upon receipt of goods, users can quickly print and encode unique RFID tags for each item within the order to track product quantity as well as expiration dates and lot numbers. Once printed, the RFID Tags are affixed to the item and later used to perform inventory cycle counts using the IQ Genius Handheld RFID Reader.
With the IQ Genius Handheld RFID Reader, users can wirelessly scan a room using Radio Frequency Identification to reconcile inventory counts quickly and more accurately than traditional manual counts. Users can use the integrated bar-code reader to start inventorying a Single SKU or switch to Full Inventory mode to count all items in a given supply room.
As items are counted the IQ Genius Handheld RFID Reader beeps to alert the user that new items are being found. When the beeping stops the user has completed their inventory and no new RFID tags are being found. A Preview feature allows the user to see what they have counted and any potential inventory adjustments to be made. At this point, the user can choose to continue the inventory count, placing the scanner back in to read mode to find additional inventory tags, or submit their inventory count to adjust their quantity on hand.
The result is fast, accurate inventory management combined with huge labor savings for Fire and EMS.
