Bauarte Invests in Visibility, Customer Experience
For receipt, sale and transfer, all merchandise at the Brazilian company has been tagged with RFID, providing control and traceability of inventory counts.
Bauarte sells an average of 50,000 pieces of merchandise per month. Its mission is to offer the best fashion accessory products, counting on a huge variety of domestic and imported goods.
Before the RFID solution was installed, every process was carried out in the traditional way, using only bar codes for inbound counts. A purchase order was made, employees received and counted the goods, and the boxes were then entered into stock. This process was followed when items were replaced after being sold, which was one of the most time-consuming tasks due to the bar codes.
In the sales area, the reading of the items selected by customers is done before those goods are taken to the payment queue. In this way, the customer can proceed to the cashier only to finalize his or her purchase.
The implementation does not follow parameters set forth in the EPC Gen 2 standard for the generation of codes; however, Gonçalves says, the equipment meets all specifications of the standard. Readings are made via Acura Mercury 6 interrogators for the validation of tagged items that pass along the conveyors, and in the sales area for checking items selected by a customer before he or she proceeds to the cashier. An Acura Edge 50 reader checks the merchandise sold.
