The Business Case for RFID in Retail and Apparel

RFID Journal has conducted extensive research to understand the business case for RFID in apparel retail, and to create metrics that companies in that sector can use to determine the likely return on investment they could achieve by employing the technology to manage store inventory. This session will explain the data used and walk attendees through the financial model. Those in attendance will receive a copy of the report on which the presentation will be based, as well as an interactive spreadsheet they can utilize to explore the benefits they can expect to receive, based on their own store size, number of units, margin, labor costs and other inputs.

Increasing Sales via RFID

One retail clothing chain has equipped its stores with RFID technology to better manage its inventory. This deployment follows a six-month pilot that boosted sales of men’s shirts and suits by double digits. During the pilot (which consisted of tagging men’s shirts and suits, and using a handheld reader to conduct inventory counts on the sales floor), the system not only provided 98 to 99 percent inventory accuracy, but also reduced the amount of labor employees spent performing manual inventory checks, thereby enabling more frequent checks. Learn how the chain expanded the program to include men’s suits, and how it expects to tag all children’s, sports, women’s and men’s clothing, as well as footwear.
