How do assets / inventory get removed from the Senitron RFID tracking system?
Naturally assets will eventually need to be removed from the RFID tracking system, since assets / inventory will get sold, shipped, and or decommissioned. Optionally, this can be important, since select exit points will be monitored to record, alert, and report unauthorized assets leaving the premises.
Method 1 – Assets can be removed / decommissioned from the Senitron Cloud Dashboard, by personnel with the proper credentials. The user can scan or select the asset, and click the change status button on the dashboard for that item, and select to “Decommission” the tag.
Method 2 – Assets can be removed / sold via Senitron Windows Desktop App, called POS Assistant. This app usually sits on top of other apps, and can be used to quickly items to decommission them.
Method 3 – Assets can be removed / decommissioned via API from a 3rd Party software, such as a POS software, WHM software, or ERP software. This would entail doing integration work between the two systems. Note, Senitron integration is already available for Lightspeed POS, Retail Pro, and Counterpoint POS.

RFID Transfer Slips
Another fantastic feature Senitron RFID enables is creating super-fast transfer slips. The difference in time savings and efficiency between making an RFID transfer slip and traditional manual counting or barcode scanning to create a transfer slip is monumental. Using a Senitron RFID reader, one can move massive amounts of items which are meant to be transferred to a specific location, in front of an RFID reader, to quickly make a transfer slip containing all the items. All it takes is to mount or place a Senitron RFID reader in a zone meant for creating transfer slips. Click “Start RFID” and start moving items in front of the reader. You select the location the items are getting transferred to, and click submit.
Automated Shipment Receiving Auditing
As if RFID transfer slips aren’t cool enough, Senitron’s technology makes everything even cooler when the delivery truck brings the merchandise to the location which was meant to receive the shipment. As soon as even one item from the shipment is received the shipment voucher is marked as received in Senitron, and as every item is seen by the RFID readers, they are automatically marked to received. If in four hours of delivery all the items in the shipment are not visible and not received store management will get an email alert to address or report the issue. If in 24 hours all items are not received or addressed, headquarters will receive an email alert that the store is not following protocol.
One of the most commonly used features by all store personnel and management is the visual search feature in the Senitron dashboard. Personnel can quickly find any product in a location by typing in the item number or description in the Senitron dashboard search box, to quickly locate where an item is located on the digital floor plan. Users can see the total quantity of items in the location and the exact location of every item.
The visual search is available in two flavors. Overhead view as displayed above, and Shelf view and displayed below.
Theft Detection & Alerts
Senitron’s solution also assists with theft detection. An RFID reader is installed on the exterior of exit points. If an item is not sold within Lightspeed, and it exists the building it will set-off an alert. All alerts all recorded and available for audit on the Missing Assets page.
