Is Your Business Ready for RFID?
A Fast and Easy Path to RFID
RFID is new to many Walmart suppliers, but our experts at Olympus Controls are here to help you. We provide professional guidance and proven solutions that meet Walmart’s RFID requirements and get you up and running quickly.
We’ll help you replace your regular barcode label with an RFID label or help you develop a hybrid solution that delivers the best of both worlds.
Solutions and Support from RFID Experts
As a leading RFID solutions provider for over a decade, we work closely with our partners at Zebra Technologies to enable a smooth and worry-free RFID transition. We provide the solutions, guidance and support so you can meet Walmart’s requirements and focus on your business.
Two Options to Fit Your Needs
- We’ll work with you to procure and set up Zebra printers and RFID labels so you can add RFID labels to your packaging. You won’t have to worry about labeling or tagging your products directly. But if you prefer direct labeling, we can help with that too.
- Alternatively, Zebra can print and encode your labels for you, sending you batches of labels you can apply to your packaging.
How to Get Started
You don’t need to be an RFID expert to start labeling your products or packaging to meet Walmart’s requirements. Olympus Controls and Zebra have a fast, easy and proven pathway to get you up and running quickly, with expert guidance.

How RFID Works
The Game-Changing Benefits of RFID
Meeting Customer Expectations
Today’s shoppers expect products to be in stock and store inventory to be 100% accurate. Walmart’s RFID initiative is all about meeting these expectations and ensuring your products are available when they’re ready to buy.
Better Inventory Accuracy
Adding RFID labels to your products or packaging helps Walmart track those items as they’re received, displayed and sold in stores. This enables real-time inventory accuracy that ensures your products are in stock and ready to sell when customers want them.
Maximizing Product Sales
Better inventory accuracy means more sales for Walmart, better satisfaction for Walmart customers, and more replenishment and growth opportunity for your business.
Transformation for Your Business
As a Walmart supplier, you can use your RFID labels to automate your own inventory and processes for improved efficiency, increased accuracy, better supply chain visibility, and major cost and labor savings.
3 Big Differences Between RFID and Barcodes
Instead of having to manually scan a barcode, an RFID reader reads labels or tags wirelessly and remotely. You don’t need line-of-sight access to a barcode or label.iency.
Unlike barcodes, RFID not only identifies items but pinpoints their locations to within a few feet.
RFID can read a large volume of items in just seconds, including entire pallets or rooms of inventory. It provides an automated and accurate account of items and their locations in real time, with unprecedented automation and efficiency.
Retail RFID tracking typically uses UHF (ultra-high frequency) RFID labels or tags, which are the least expensive. They can cost as little as 10 to 25 cents each, but your exact cost will depend on the specific label or tag you need to use as well as whether you’re doing your own RFID printing and encoding.
