Traceability is knowing the What, When, Where and Why of any product at any point in the supply chain when needed.
Traceability can be defined simply as the ability to identify the current location, condition and history of a product, item or article.
Your business can experience countless benefits and cost saving measures with the ability to track any article, merchandise item or product. The 4 following properties are the staples of RFID traceability:
Traceablility as such seems simple and even basic at first glance, but the real power behind it is expressed in countless ways and applications. Dipole RFID Solutions has extensive experience in supply chain management, the exchange of goods, information and funds. We know how to create a tracking system in compliance with regulations to ensure customer safety, especially in those sectors that deal directly with human health.
Manually tracking and obtaining vital information of your business processes on a daily basis requires massive amounts of time and resources, all the while increasing the possibility of errors and mistakes.

Traceability and the Supply Chain
Complete visibility of the supply chain is possible and obtaining traceability with RFID technology will benefit you greatly in your reduction of resources required to manage the supply chain.
Intelligent Traceability and Process Optimization go hand in hand
Throughout the supply chain, the continual exchange of information and goods takes place seamlessly within the different links that compose it. Each "chain actor" performs a dual function: receiving goods and shipping gooods, receiving orders andd information and processing deliveries using said data.
As shown in the chart above, an "Internal Traceability" and "External Traceability" are created, each chain depending on and intimately linked to the other in the exchange of information.
If merchandise received is accurately identified and you are able to automatically capture that information at the time and place of reception, you will have saved tremendously on time and resources and faster decisions can be made in the movement of such goods and items.
Challenges companies face in "HOW TO OBTAIN TRACEABILITY" can be summarized as follows:
Internal traceability refers to the methods, procedures and elements needed for tracking and recording data within a business's processes.
Internal tracking takes place when goods or raw materials are received, processed and the product is delivered to third parties.
The goal is to keep track of the properties of all products involved in the manufacturing or handling process from beginning to end, aquiring the information necessary for a complete tracking system.
This method of tracking supports the following business processes:
Implementing Internal Traceability
This kind of implementations has a lot to do with the optimization of business processes and obtaining the visibility of the supply chain.
Use the solutions that Dipole has developed for each process and sectoral application, you will find the simple and simple way to implement traceability while improving live and real-time information that will allow you to make safe decisions.
External traceability refers to the methods, elements and procedures necessary to obtain traceable data between the companies that make up the supply chain.
Implementing External Traceability
External traceability deals with the exchange in data of the properties of goods drawn between different links in the chain. Data gets exchanged with third parties or when tracking is required within the same company but between separate geographical locations.
· Issuing and sharing information with customers or the next link in the chain.
