Wilko Fights Stock Loss With RFID
Wilko, a leading British housewares and household goods retailer with more than 300 stores, is using an RFID-enabled solution to improve inventory control and loss prevention. Although the stores were equipped with security tagging and closed-circuit television (CCTV), they were still losing stock and unable to prove how the product was being stolen, apart from empty packets left around the store. Learn how the RFID system alerts the store to loss, when it happens, with real-time visibility about what is passing through the tills and what isn't, before it is taken through the exit point.
Speaker: Karl Jordan, Senior Loss Prevention Investigator, Wilko

Enhancing the Omni-Channel Experience - RFID's Evolving Role in Fashion and Luxury
The benefits of RFID-enabled inventory are less obvious in fashion and luxury, where out-of-stocks are a sign of success. But, as loyal shoppers expect the same level of personalized service online as in-store, RFID is taking on a new role, sensing customer needs and keeping brand promises. This session will investigate RFID’s evolving role in fashion, luxury and retail markets, with real-world examples, business metrics and deployment considerations.
Speaker: Su Doyle, Industry Programs, Checkpoint Systems and OATSystems

The Business Case for RFID in Retail Apparel
RFID Journal has conducted extensive research to understand the business case for RFID in apparel retail, and to create metrics that companies in that sector can use to determine the likely return on investment they could achieve by employing the technology to manage store inventory. In this session, we will explain the data used, and walk attendees through the financial model.

Downtown Stores Use BLE to Improve Customer Service
Merchants in two Canadian cities have deployed Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons in conjunction with an app enabling shoppers to top off payments on their parking meters. The solution consists of beacons and a free app, known as HotSpot Parking, which can be downloaded on a user's BLE-enabled smartphone. The app enables shoppers to view notifications about their parking payment status and pay for extra minutes, as well as receive promotional information from participating stores. If the parking meter payment is due to expire while the shopper is still in a store equipped with a beacon, the phone app will send that individual an alert indicating the need for additional payment, which the customer can then approve in order to avoid a parking violation fine. In this way, the merchant can be assured that the shopper will not prematurely leave the store to pay a meter. Learn how this function has helped increase sales, and how retailers are using the app to personalize offers to participating shoppers.
Speaker: Phillip Curley, Chief Executive Officer, HotSpot Parking Inc.
