Tyco Retail Solutions Offers IoT-enabled RFID Inventory-Visibility Systems

Tyco Retail Solutions showcased its portfolio of Internet of Things-enabled RFID solutions, designed to provide real-time in-store visibility and inventory insights. The company's RFID products are intended to help retailers transform store operations with real-time visibility into available inventory throughout the store and across the supply chain.

Tyco's TrueVUE Inventory Intelligence solutions, featuring the Tyco Retail RFID Fitting Room, enables retailers to optimize the customer experience and gain real-time insights into fitting room inventory, customer preferences and potential loss situations. Retailers can leverage these new data insights to combat shrinkage, increase sales, enable in-room merchandising and promotional opportunities, and provide an enhanced, personalized shopper experience.

Leveraging RAIN RFID technology and cloud-based analytics, the Supply Chain Track & Trace application tracks and controls inventory throughout the supply chain. This application offers retailers real-time access to product flow data, providing smarter brand and customer protection from counterfeiting and gray market diversion.

RFID Cycle Counting functionality allows rapid and frequent cycle-counting activity and analytics to drive inventory accuracy and efficiencies through a mobile sled with iOS and Android devices. Regular RFID cycle counts can help retailers minimize out-of-stocks and overstock conditions, the company reports, as well as maintain a consistent level of inventory accuracy of up to 95 to 99 percent.

Sensormatic Synergy Loss Prevention functionality connects multiple technologies in a single storefront system. This intelligent, interconnected and modular detection system helps companies manage store shrinkage. Synergy leverages RAIN RFID technology to provide real-time shrinkage visibility, in order to capture and link actionable data across key operational areas, thereby helping to optimize store performance and profitability.

MTI Wireless Edge Unveils New RFID Antenna for Asset Tracking, Other Applications

MTI Wireless Edge exhibited a new antenna at the event. The MT009D09RH antenna has a gain of 8 dBic, covers the 865 to 965 MHz frequency range and measures 1 foot in length. It complies with ATEX 95 and Directive 94/9EC (Group I, M1, ia) and is suitable for deployment at all ATEX zones.

MTI developed the core technology and created this first ATEX antenna as a model that can be adopted in the future to other needs.
