The growing popularity of RFID technology for retail applications was evident at this year’s National Retail Federation show in New York. And it’s no wonder, because RFID delivers so many benefits to retailers.
Retail is a dynamic environment where the customer is king, and losing their interest due to out-of-stock merchandise means losing the sale. Item level tagging with RFID technology enables continuous product visibility from warehouse to checkout, improving overall inventory management and reducing out of stock situations.
Additionally, RFID delivers real-time access to product data and faster transaction processing, resulting in increased profitability through better productivity, and freeing uptime for customer service. Savvy retailers know that the ability to quickly spot fluctuations in market and buyer behavior allows a more efficient and successful retail operation throughout the entire supply chain.
