Scalable RFID Retail Store Operations
Some vendors talk about scaled in-store implementations. We’ve actually done them. In retail, data provided by the multitude of newly visible objects will forever change the spectrum of big data applications and introduce use cases never before imagined. Retailers are already experiencing the beginnings of this trend, as RFID enables ‘omni-channel’ linking of e-commerce to the physical store, assists in brand authentication and enhances the in-store customer experience. However, we are only just starting to scratch the surface.
Most retailers today conduct a manual stock count twice a year, achieving an average inventory accuracy of 70 percent. Item-level RFID makes it possible to activate, connect and track all those things that are currently invisible. By accessing real-time data on all their inventory items, retailers can achieve 99 percent inventory accuracy and realize a true Internet of all Things (IoT).
With the Clarity® solution, you can collect more accurate and timely inventory data, helping you to make better decisions about appropriate inventory levels to match demand. In fact, one large, multinational apparel retailer has demonstrated greater than 98 percent improvement in inventory accuracy since implementing the SML RFID Clarity® solution. Customers using Clarity® are executing cycle counts of their complete store as often as four times a week and as infrequently as once a week, driving significant reductions in personnel cost and eliminating third-party audits.
Use the Clarity® solution to execute on that information to fulfill enhanced processes in your store such as: intelligent replenishment, multi-store stock inquire, search and find, movement of items back into back stock, transfer of items out of the store and omnichannel picking in the store.
Most importantly, an accurate picture of what is selling and what is still sitting on the shelf, combined with the right tool, gives you the capability you need to improve your overall merchandising execution and keep your customers coming back to the store.
With turnkey implementations, superior servicing and proven results, Clarity® is fast becoming the number one solution for apparel inventory management, delivering maximum ROI with simplified deployment.
