The barcode is the most used solution to identify products in the retail sector, but RFID is making a hole in this world. Large companies such as Decathlon, Inditex, El Corte Inglés or Mango are in the process of adding, or have already done so, this system to their merchandise circuit.

RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is a technology that uses chips in order to track or identify objects at a distance. It may not seem like the most suitable option for your company, but its advantages can make you change your mind.

Stock control with RFID


RFID tags allow you to maintain better stock control. Each of them keeps unique information that differentiates all the articles from each other, even if they are the same model. It is as if each product had a personal ID. The implementation of this technology helps, thus, to have total control of the inventory, which also improves productivity. Workers can know at any time where exactly the product is located.

Another advantage offered by RFID fo...

A counterfeit detector and a Ratiotec banknote counter

There is a possibility that a counterfeit bill will reach our hands. A great ally for business in these cases are counterfeit detectors. These machines solve, in less than a second, all doubts about the authenticity of cash. But how does a banknote detector work?

Several boxes of medicines with barcodes

In February 2019, the European Directive 2011/62/EU entered into force, establishing a single Community code to prevent the falsification of medicines. The entire chain involved in the production and sale of medicines, from laboratories to pharmacies, must take this into account so that they reach citizens.

All those involved had to adapt their computer system to the new data registration regulations. To do this, they use the Datamatrix codes, which replaces the traditional drug barcode, in addition to the seal that verifies that the container has not been manipulated.

Information collected by the Datamatrix


Datamatrix barcodeThe Datamatrix is a two-dimensional square-shaped code that is capable of storing up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters.
