How can you convert your products into communication platforms and cost reduction tools? By making them a part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Using temperature-sensing smart labels and inexpensive NFC tags, you can extend product safety and efficiency efforts beyond the shipping dock while also building a communication bridge to your customers. As the next wave of RFID technology, smartphone-friendly NFC tags immediately add value to your products without requiring a re-design.
Learn how you can use smart sensor labels and NFC tags to:
- Track, and trace products after they leave the shipping dock
- Combat diversion and counterfeits while also improving forecasting
- Identify and engage with end-customers to learn their needs and offer re-order options
- Ensure safety and freshness of perishable goods
