WHAT THE REUSABLE PACKAGING MANAGEMENT SOLUTION CAN DO FOR YOU
The Reusable Packaging Management (RPM) solution offers many options depending on your company’s needs and goals. The difference resides mostly in the type and amount of data monitored and the number of touchpoints in the supply chain.
The RPM solution uses data capture technology and powerful software for real-time data empowerment and visualization. Assets can be tracked using a unique identifier (UID) printed directly on the asset or label or an RFID or NFC that can be read by Internet of things (IoT) devices. These technologies can be combined for additional data monitoring (cold chain, temperature, freshness, consumption, etc.).
The technology stack needed for each option is similar: packaging identification (UID), camera, RFID reader, cloud database and mobile app.
