German Retailer Gerry Weber Selects Tyco Retail Solutions' TrueVUE Software

Tyco Retail Solutions has announced that Gerry Weber, a German fashion and lifestyle company, has selected its RFID-enabled TrueVUE Inventory Visibility application for the retailer's RFID initiative for item-level inventory visibility and accuracy at 800 stores. Tyco's TrueVUE Inventory Visibility software will replace the retailer's existing RFID solution, Tyco reports, enabling it to leverage RFID for a number of use cases in support of their business.

In 2009, Gerry Weber announced its plan to tag all of the garments it produces and sells (see Gerry Weber Sews In RFID's Benefits). Currently, according to Tyco, it RFID-tags approximately 30 million items per year. The retailer uses RFID for logistics, retail processes and loss prevention. To enhance inventory accuracy and in-store stock availability, Tyco says, Gerry Weber will deploy Tyco's RFID application for use with receiving, cycle counting, product locating, point-of-sale (POS), loss prevention, sales floor replenishment and merchandise transfer. The new RFID-enabled visibility into exact quantity and location of items—by style, size and color—will help to ensure on-floor availability and timely, accurate sales floor replenishment to satisfy shopper needs, according to Tyco. In addition to the TrueVUE Inventory Visibility application, Tyco will provide the retailer with professional services to manage its project.

Earlier this week, Tyco Retail Solutions unveiled a new set of RFID-based applications available on the TrueVUE platform, including Display Execution and Storefront Visibility. With packaged applications, Tyco explains, retail organizations can introduce the technology in a modular fashion and derive immediate benefits with minimal disruption to their infrastructure, investment and business processes.
