Sporting goods retailer Decathlon, one of the largest sporting goods and sportswear retailers worldwide, increased sales last year, attributing part of that growth to an ambitious RFID deployment at all of its 951 stores worldwide, as well as at approximately 43 warehouses. During the same time period, Decathlon experienced a 9 percent reduction in shrinkage. Most of the stores are now using RFID technology for inventory checks at the point of sale and at security gates. Learn how the technology has not only improved stores’ inventory accuracy, but also reduced labor on the part of workers who track inventory. Most stores can now conduct inventory checks five times faster than they did manually, and these locations are performing checks about twice as often.
