Turn Raw Data into Actionable Data with RFID and Traceability

More than ever, manufacturers are implementing RFID technology to gain increased visibility into their processes and lay the groundwork for the Industrial Internet of Things. With this evolution has come enormous amounts of data that can hold the key to process improvement, quality assurance, regulatory compliance, and more. But how do you turn mountains of data into actual policies and actions that will positively affect the bottom line? Solving this challenge now is the difference between increased profits and losing ground to competition.

Join Balluff Traceability Sales Specialist Wolfgang Kratzenberg for a FREE, 30-minute live webinar where he will explain what you should look for in a data software and how a quality data solutions partner can provide you with the strategies needed to use that data to improve quality and efficiency. Wolfgang will share real-world examples from manufacturers collecting and analyzing their data to learn the needs of the plant floor and make informed decisions to improve their processes.

One lucky person who registers prior to this webinar will win a BIS00W4 USB 2.0 RFID read/write head with an integrated processor unit and the accompanying cable and RFID tags. Join us on August 5 at 11:30am (EST) to be eligible for this giveaway!
