RFID Rollout at 70 Stores Within One Month at America Today

The cloud-based UHF RFID application reduces inventory time by more than 90 percent and increases inventory accuracy to nearly 100 percent.

Today, customers want the Store-in-a-Pocket. This means: more online services. The basis is an inventory accuracy of almost 100 percent, generated by an RFID solution.

America Today stands for fashion with American flair, but the main focus today is on its own brand. The company has branches in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.

Process Requirements

Prior to the RFID integration, complete inventories were carried out in the 70 stores every two years. This took a total of 280 working days - four working days per store. Up to 560 employees were completely occupied with counting and documenting the inventory by hand on one day. The average inventory accuracy was 75 percent. Additionally, one employee per store spent around two hours a day collecting goods.

Objective

  • Reduce inventory times
  • Increase stock accuracy

Solution

The RFID solution has been in use in 70 stores since 2018. Articles of the America Today private label are tagged 90 percent during production. Goods that have been delivered are subsequently labelled by employees in the warehouse's goods receiving area. Every product in the shop is tagged with an RFID label.

The same hardware and software setup is implemented in all 70 stores. The tagging of articles of other brands with RFID tags takes place in the main warehouse of America Today. The share of tagged goods from suppliers is continuously increasing. If brand manufacturers encode their RFID labels in the GS1 standard, these tags can be integrated into America Today's RFID solution. Inventories and incoming goods are recorded using handheld readers connected to tablets or handhelds via Bluetooth.

A virtual shielding application is used to precisely separate the inventories in the front and backstore areas. This is integrated in the cloud-based application. There is no need for the physical shielding of the two areas, which must be guaranteed by structural measures.
