Nedap Launches RFID Software Platform for Omnichannel Retail

Nedap has launched its !D Cloud software platform in the United States. !D Cloud enables retailers to boost inventory visibility in retail organizations, ensuring on-shelf product availability and true omnichannel retailing.

"!D Cloud is the fastest-growing RFID platform in the market with major rollouts in Europe and South Africa over the past years," said Rob Schuurman, Nedap Retail's managing director, in a prepared statement. "We also already deployed several stores in the US for our global customers, but now the time is here that we are ready to deploy major projects in the US with a dedicated local team."

The !D Cloud software suite is a software-as-a-service solution specifically developed for retail applications, allowing retailers to implement RFID and improve in-store stock accuracy to more than 98 percent. The software offers detailed insights into stock accuracy and the exact locations of items, for such omnichannel concepts as click-and-collect, ship-from-store and buy-online-return-offline, without adding complexity or a separate supply chain.

"We continuously strive to lower the barriers for RFID. The latest feature we have developed is 'virtual shielding', which provides reliable sub-location data and eliminates the need for 'physical shielding'," Schuurman said in the prepared statement. "In our view, this is another breakthrough to make it easier and more cost-effective for retailers to deploy RFID."
