Delivering the Value of RFID Technology
for Apparel Manufacturers & Brand Owners

Deploying RFID technology is a challenge. However, the increased speed, inventory accuracy and visibility that RFID brings to apparel inventory management and source tagging is proven. MSM Solutions’ PortalTrack® makes it easy for you to integrate RFID throughout the supply chain tailored to what your business case requires.

With PortalTrack Apparel, you make the rules — we don't.

Why PortalTrack

The benefits of RFID extend well beyond the retail floor. RFID inventory Management  provides means to track the movement of assets through the manufacturing and supply chain process. While the PortalTrack RFID system enables retailers to quickly manage stock levels and take cycle count inventories, apparel manufacturers utilizing RFID inventory management systems also gain efficiencies through more accurate pick / pack operations, validation that the right product is shipped, improved inventory accuracy, automated shipping and receiving, and perpetual inventory system enablement. PortalTrack apparel inventory tracking software provides customers worldwide the ability to deploy and integrate a scalable, real-time visibility solution to access data and make decisions instantaneously based on the information received from barcode and RFID installations.
