Brazilian Retailer Lez a Lez Improves Inventory-Counting Process
The store, located in Asuncion, Paraguay, adopted RFID technology for merchandise receiving, inventory management and sales.
Jun 21, 2017—
Lez a Lez, a Brazilian retail franchise headquartered in the city of Asuncion, Paraguay, has adopted radio frequency identification technology to control everything from the receipt of goods and inventory management to sales. Following successful trials of the RFID system at the company's concept store, other branches will now begin to implement the same processes.
According to Lez a Lez's management, the store maintains a stock of approximately 5,000 pieces and has an average monthly turnover of 1,600 products. In the evaluation of its managers, what differentiates the franchise from its competitors is that it constantly seeks out new innovations and follows the latest fashion trends for its target audience—namely, women.
Due to the complexity and slowness of the processes, products took a long time to reach the sales area. In addition, when it came time to conduct inventory counts, it took six employees working for 12 hours to manually read all of the bar codes, item by item.
"Before RFID," says Samuel Kandler Martinez, the director of Lez a Lez's retail network, "we could not check goods that came from the distribution center to the store because bar-coding was item by item, which made the process very slow. It took around two and a half hours to process an average of 450 pieces."
"With RFID technology, we were able to count the same 450 pieces within 15 minutes and with the boxes sealed, taking into account information about the color and size of the products," Martinez adds. "This has given us more speed and efficiency in our processes, allowing products to reach the sales area already counted, and with a guarantee of the pieces' traceability."
