Retail competition is fierce; it takes a lot of effort to keep pace and stay in the game. But you want to do more than just survive – you want your business to thrive.

With hundreds of retail stores in over 20 countries using Clarity to manage billions of RFID inventory transactions every year, we thoroughly understand the pain points and new processes and technology that help you manage your apparel inventory with a new level of efficiency. Without a clear picture of your current inventory and methods for responding to needed actions, your customer service is impacted, your costs are higher because you have to carry excess stock, and your profits are lower due to sales lost to out-of-stocks.

Item-level RFID Benefits

Item-level RFID for apparel inventory management allows you to deliver exactly what the customer wants, when they want it by having inventory accuracy over 98%:

  • Out-of-Stock on the Sales Floor … Reduced by over 70%
  • Internal Shrink due to information and inventory reductions … Reduced by over 50%
  • High-Frequency Cycle Counts due to pure effort to do it by hand … Daily if need be
  • Elimination of Third-party Audit Costs because you don’t need them anymore … 100%
  • Poor Inventory Forecasting due to lack of a true picture of your current levels … >10% more inventory than you really need
  • Customer Dissatisfaction because your customers can’t buy what they want in your stores

Item-level retail RFID offers significant benefits for improved apparel inventory management. Yet only one retail management software solution has been able to deliver on the promise of managing every item of every store across a major retail chain: SML RFID’s Clarity™ solution, the tool for the retailer wanting to reach the next level of inventory management.

Clarity™ For Apparel Inventory Management

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 4 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 fulfil 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.
