1) Improve the quality and transparency of data across the supply chain
Accurate data that is easily accessed makes it possible to solve a multitude of process inefficiencies. The best way to implement a system that results in the highest reliability and availability is by using the concept of “distributed data.” In this context, distributed data refers to live data that is attached directly to the object and can be modified automatically at process checkpoints. When data is read from a tag, answers are provided to the questions: What? Why? Where? and When?
This is the very essence of RFID applications in industry.
2) Make it easier to implement flexible manufacturing processes
Staying competitive often means producing more from the same production line. In order to make production processes more flexible, there must also be flexibility in the content and delivery of data to the various manufacturing cells. The ability to accommodate and respond to a higher influx of constantly changing data is necessary. RFID is used to reliably read and write data directly to a tag on an object in real-time. This capability can be leveraged to make flexible manufacturing a reality.
3) Increase the accuracy of and reduce the time spent taking inventories
Manually counting inventory is an extremely tedious, time consuming, inefficient, and inaccurate method. RFID can be used to reduce or eliminate the need for “hand-scanning,” resulting in immediate and significant improvements in inventory tracking. These results directly impact the customer experience and lead to increased sales
4) Reliable Track and Trace in challenging physical environments
Since RFID does away with the requirement that there be a direct line of sight to the object’s identifier, standard bar-code labels (that can be ruined by extreme environmental conditions) can be replaced with encapsulated RFID tags. The need for reading and/or writing data to an object, when process conditions are extreme, can be handled by attaching these durable RFID tags.
Conditions such as high humidity, drastic temperature swings, exposure to chemicals and paints, extremely high temperatures, rough handling, and dirt wreak havoc on conventional paper barcode labels. Specially encapsulated RFID tags are designed to survive and perform reliably in even the most challenging of environments.

5) Increase efficiency and cut down on rework
RFID can be particularly advantageous in closed loop systems where reusable transport mechanisms are used. Real-time visibility allows the observation and close monitoring of products and processes so that quick action can be taken and process improvements that have a major impact on quality can be made in a timely manner with laser point precision — potentially saving millions
6) Environmental Demands
Architects, Project Managers, Construction. Companies and the buying public are all looking to digitisation in the construction of new buildings. Whilst improving flexibility and efficiencies are the main benefits of automation, one of the side benefits is the reduction of industrial waste. Construction waste is a major contributor to Global warming, with new green legislation expected to carry severe penalties for Companies who fall foul of strict guidelines, it is becoming critical to reduce production waste

Avoiding technology lock in. A major problem for Organisations looking to automate is deciding on a specific technology which becomes superseded by something more effective..
As well as the automated tracking of Goods, the same Portal Equipment can record the movement and real time location of People, Assets, Vehicles, Files, Tools, anything which can be tagged. With Reading Equipment which can last 10 years plus, both consumable and re-usable tags can be automatically read, recording the arrival and departure in real time of anything which carries A unique identifier. In the case of People Flow it greatly improves evacuation. processes, accurately identifying who is left in the building in real time.
