RFID Item Level Tagging is not as difficult as you think according to Marc Hernandez Director of Customer Service with Agron (official licensee of Adidas accessories) once you find the RIGHT solution, which for us, was Qstock RFID. The mandate for them is 500- 1200 store items per week which they tag and ship from their own warehouse in Southern California. JCPenny’s mandate for Agron was Men’s undergarments.
“MSA Systems automated a RFID Item level tagging solution for us in about a 4 week turn around. Our customers where very pleased with our ability to meet the demands for the Item level tagging. The Qstock RFID software allows us to tag the garments per the mandate very easily. Overall Agron has seen increased business from their retailers once the Qstock RFID tagging was in place.”
- Agrons’s Benefits from RFID have been:
- More orders for increased units
- Execute on shorter time lines
- Improved customer service
Demands of retailers are more demanding now than ever. They want more products with a shorter time line. Over all Item level RFID deployments are boosting stores inventory accuracy levels, and other benefits have been:
- Out of stock reduced by 60-80%
- Sales increases of 4-21%
- Reduction in cycle counts by 75% to 92%
- Reduction in inventory carrying costs by 30-50%.
The inventory accuracy that comes from item level RFID help retailers focus more on store promotions, improve their reaction capabilities to overstocked items and implement better replenishment.
What is needed to get started with ITEM level Tagging is MSA’s Q Stock RFID software, a Zebra printer and your RFID tag. That is how you win with RFID tagging.
