Today RFID’s value has evolved far beyond inventory visibility to building the foundation for responsive retailing. During this virtual event, hear how retailers worldwide are using RFID to become more agile and responsive in an increasingly competitive market.

11:05 AM – 11:35 PM
Increasing Sales via RFID
One retail clothing chain has equipped 13 of 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.

Brand Reduces Customer Chargebacks By 98.8%
An American clothing brand has leveraged an RFID system to automatically capture data about what is being shipped for each order.  The firm began using RFID following a request to tag its products with EPC UHF RFID tags from one of its large retailer customers. The solution is designed to prevent errors and increase efficiency at its wholesale location. Learn how they are leveraging a technology more commonly deployed by big companies, to bring its customer chargeback rate down by 98.8 percent, increasing its warehouse efficiency and achieving an ROI within less than a year.

Using RFID-Enabled Unmanned Stores to Increase Sales
An energy company has deployed an automated, unmanned store at several of its fueling stations that enables shoppers to select goods, pay for them and then leave, all without requiring a sales associate. They are leveraging UHF RFID tags on products and readers installed at the point of sale and exit to enable shoppers to buy goods by placing them on the sales counter and approving the purchase without human assistance. The stores, part of the company’s self-serve model for gas stations, extend the automation from self-serve fueling to the associated market. Learn how the system is increasing sales, as well as helping the firm to effectively manage inventory.

RFID Enables Automatic Replenishment for Retailer
A European retailer has launched an RFID-based solution at two of its stores to enable automatic replenishment as goods are sold at its store or online. The system consists of EPC UHF RFID inlays built into the hard tags attached to each product, as well as countertop and handheld readers and cloud-based software. The RFID system provides stock reliability to enable the automatic replenishment of inventory. Learn how the firm is now able to ensure its inventory is accurate for those buying products online, as well as for in-store shoppers.
