This research is related to the effects produced by Information technology on the Internal Supply Chain Management of the companies. It tells how the organization works through IT. RFID tags within the organization are associated with multiple advantages especially it is beneficial for managing the supply chain. The cost efficiencies & cost-effectiveness are promoted by multiple elements. RFID is a path towards the future. The future wants everything which is not only flexible and innovative but also the least expensive in order to give the best customer service. It is represented by the study that through RFID tags the major benefit attain is that data transfer is easy. Furthermore, it has better data capturing quality.

Keywords: Information Technology; Supply Chain Management; RFID Tags
