Fashion Retailer Brownie Signs Agreement With Nedap for Cloud-based RFID Software
Nedap has signed an agreement with fast-growing Spanish fashion retailer Brownie for the supply of its !D Cloud radio frequency identification solution. Brownie uses !D Cloud to raise the in-store stock accuracy of its stores. The rollout took place from May to June 2017.
"The implementation of Nedap's RFID software is the first step in our digitalization process," said Albert Puyol, Brownie's CEO, in a prepared statement. "This technology gives us the stock accuracy level that we need to be a real omnichannel player. Using !D Cloud, we have more insight into our operations than ever before. We now know the product availability and stock depth for each store, and even per location within each store."
During the pre-rollout at three stores, Brownie evaluated the user-friendliness and effectiveness of the solution. "We now have an RFID solution that not only gives us a better stock accuracy, but is also easy to use for our store staff," Puyol added in the statement. "This significantly increases its effectiveness."
At Brownie, all items are source-tagged with an RFID label on a hangtag. In the stores, staff members perform a weekly cycle count using a handheld RFID reader and the !D Cloud app on a mobile device. The !D Cloud software then translates the collected data into comprehensive lists that highlight the differences between Brownie's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and the RFID count.
According to the company, the causes of stock differences, through losses or administrative errors, can thus be identified and dealt with more quickly. "With the implementation of !D Cloud," Puyol said in the prepared statement, "we have access to structured and up-to-date information that allows us to make better decisions and significantly increase our sales."
