Retail and apparel companies have been among the early adopters of RFID technologies, both internally and within their shared supply chains. 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.
Welcome and Introduction
Overview of RFID in Retail Today
Many retailers, including Macy’s and Walmart, are requiring suppliers to tag individual items with RFID transponders. This enables the retailers to track the location of items and replenish shelves, ship from store, and execute buy-online, pickup in store strategies. This session will explain the current state of adoption and the future of RFID in retail, which will likely mean more demands on suppliers.
RFID Helps Retailer Transform Its Business
An apparel retailer has implemented a radio frequency identification to better manage stock and streamline the management of its eight stores. The solution has showed positive results in the purchase-order process for suppliers, as well as in the receipt of goods at the firm’s distribution center. When the merchandise arrives at the DC, the process of printing labels on top of the purchase order is carried out. The products are then tagged and, as a result, the entry of goods into the DC via the RFID portal becomes easier. Learn how the solution is streamlining operations and enabling the company to better manage its inventory.
Tag Supplier Landscape
There are many different companies that provide RFID tags. Some will provide you with just the tag or label with a transponder in it and your firm must encode the tag. Others will provide pre-encoded tags. Some will offer additional data management services to ensure duplicate serial numbers are not produced by mistake. This session will spell out the major tag providers and the options they offer.
Retailer Rolls Out RFID Across 100-Plus Stores
A fashion retailer has gained greater inventory visibility, enabling it to fulfill omnichannel purchases throughout Europe and North America. The system consists of passive UHF RFID tags attached to all merchandise, as well as handheld RFID readers in stores and cloud-based Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) management software. Learn how the use of the solution is improving sales and inventory visibility by allowing the firm to track every garment and accessory it sells.
