Who Should Attend

Among those who will benefit from attending RFID in Retail and Apparel are:

Store operations executives: RFID is a powerful tool to improve store operations. It's imperative that deployments be driven by operational management so the deployment improves store execution.

Merchandisers: It's critical that merchandisers understand how RFID works and how it can be used to improve merchandising and capture new types of data that can improve their strategies.

Loss prevention executives: RFID can be used in a variety of ways to identify the sources of shrinkage and to combat internal theft.

Financial executives: It's important to manage the investment in an RFID system and find cost-effective solutions, to achieve a return on investment from any deployment. Financial staff will benefit from hearing about the costs as well as the benefits of RFID technologies.

IT professionals: Information technology is a critical component of any RFID system, and this event will educate professionals in the IT department about how they can integrate RFID into existing back-end systems.

Logistics managers: RFID is all about having the item in the right place at the right time when the customer wants to buy it. Using RFID to achieve supply-chain visibility and optimize store deliveries is critical to achieving that goal.
