Why Inventory Accuracy Is Retail's "Burning Platform"—and How Item-Level RFID Can Help

Poor inventory accuracy and the issues it causes in retail are well-documented, but until recently, viable, cost-effective solutions that could mitigate or eliminate the problem did not exist. In the meantime, consumer demand for omnichannel shopping experiences and the increasing threat of online competition have elevated inventory accuracy from an irritation to a true "burning platform." Retailers and brand owners cannot afford to sit idly by, achieving only 60 to 80 percent inventory accuracy, while their competition invests in solutions that enable accuracy close to 100 percent.

The competitive gap between those who embrace item-level RFID solutions to drive inbound and outbound shipment quality, sales lift, shrink reduction and omnichannel execution, and those who do not, will continue to widen. Today, more than ever, retailers and brand owners understand the theoretical value proposition that RFID provides. We want to take you a level deeper, to understand what a solution looks like, what it does and how it delivers value to real-world customers.

Join us to get an up-close, tangible look at how item-level RFID solutions can address this burning platform. During this webinar, you will:

• Discover why inventory accuracy has become a "burning platform," and what you can do about it
• Take a peek under the hood to see how an item-level RFID solution known as Clarity addresses each of the issues that have made inventory accuracy the burning platform it is—in practical, non-theoretical terms
• Learn about real-world business cases of customers that have adopted an item-level RFID solution
• Explore features within the Clarity software that are making the adoption of item-level RFID solutions easier than ever

With increasing pressure from online retailers and customers that demand to be served through the channel of their choice, retailers cannot afford to be unaware of what they have in stock at any given moment. Enough has been said about the financial and functional benefits of item-level RFID—join us to learn, up close and personal, how a world-class item-level system actually works.

Simplifying Field and Consignment Inventory Management With RFID
Learn how RFID4U's TagMatiks – FI (Field Inventory) platform and Zebra Technologies' RFD8500 and RFD2000 readers can be used by companies in manufacturing, health care, fashion, energy and other verticals to perform cycle counts, inventory management, field audits and transfers, as well as build out predictable analytics. Find out how to increase the visibility of your inventory and operations while cutting down on manual processes. In this session, the speaker will cover the benefits of leveraging RFID and related technologies for field and consignment inventory management, while discussing how to automate workflows, such as cycle counting and reconciling captured data. With this newfound data and automated workflows, businesses can better control their expiry management, write-offs, and stock and par levels, as well have more concrete visibility into their supply chain and assets.
ARCHIVED WEBINARS
How Patti Engineering Improved DC Inventory Tracking with Passive UHF RFID

Common Traits of Successful RFID Projects in Supply Chain and Manufacturing
There’s never been more pressure to manufacture with less cost. To remain competitive, successful companies are looking for practical ways to obtain better information faster. Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a proven technology that lends itself to a wide array of data collection applications in the warehouse and on the factory floor, but adoption hasn’t taken off - until now. With global standards, lower system costs and enhanced solution reliability, adoption is on the rise. In fact, nearly half of all manufacturers are expected to implement passive RFID solutions within the next five years. In this webinar, the speakers provide a brief overview of that state of RFID in supply chain and manufacturing today. Then, they’ll explore several use cases highlighting the successful application of RFID in real-world environments, including a global manufacturer of agricultural, industrial, and consumer products that is more accurately monitoring cycle times to drive continuous improvement; a major appliance manufacturer that streamlined visibility and verification of inventory delivery from the manufacturing floor to finished goods warehousing; and a leading electronics component provider that’s leveraging RFID to track mission critical assets on a global scale. Finally, The presenters will explore the three traits common to all successful RFID implementations and how you can use them to ensure RFID project success within your organization.
RFID's Role in an e-Commerce World
This webinar will feature an in-depth discussion on the ever-changing landscape of retail and the growth that has been seen in the e-commerce channel. Speakers will explain indetail how RFID can get the right product to the customer, saving time and undue costs, while meeting customer expectations.
