There are endless possibilities for new item-level retail and logistics applications, for brand protection, inventory accuracy, loss prevention and enhanced customer experiences - provided that items can be tagged effectively. Offering the world’s smallest inlay, extended read range and better usability, Smartrac’s new UCODE® 8-based MINIWEB, DOGBONE and BELT RAIN RFID inlays are IoT-ready, and now make even more products taggable.
Alibaba is to e-commerce what Smartrac is to RFID: one of the world’s biggest players. Now, the giant company aiming “to build the future infrastructure of commerce” has acquired a minority share in the RFID and IoT pacesetter. The rationale behind: the common quest for brand protection.
