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.
