Misako to Use Nedap's RFID Software at More than 200 Stores

Spanish fashion retailer Misako will use Nedap's !D Cloud RFID software solution at its more than 200 stores and in its distribution center. By using !D Cloud, Misako has been able to raise its stock accuracy to more than 98 percent. Having full transparency of its stock levels is an essential part of the retailer's international growth strategy, the firm reports.

"Accurate stock data will strongly contribute to our current stores' performance and enable our international expansion," said Jean François Thuilliez, Misako's deputy CEO, in a prepared statement. "We are a very lean organization and Nedap's !D Cloud solution is an excellent match with our way of working. It is easy-to-use, light on our IT resources and highly scalable."

By raising stock accuracy, Misako has increased on-shelf availability, improved DC-to-store replenishment and boosted the speed of its online and Click & Collect orders. "In today's omnichannel world, we need to know exactly where our merchandise is," Thuilliez said in the prepared statement. "Only then, we are able to speed up our processes and truly integrate our physical stores with our web shops. True integration means that we have one single pool of products and we know the exact location of each individual item."

All items are source-tagged at the retailer's production facilities. At stores, staff members perform a weekly count using a handheld RFID reader and the !D Cloud app on a mobile device to determine which items are available. !D Cloud highlights the discrepancies between Misako's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and the RFID count. Consequently, the causes of stock differences—through losses or administrative errors—can quickly be identified and dealt with.
