Stadium rolls out RFID in 173 stores

Swedish sporting goods retailer satisfied with inventory accuracy – until RFID pilot showed actual numbers.

Three years from testing to rollout

The annual inventory per Stadium branch lasts more than 200 hours. Although the inventory results seem 98–99 percent accurate at first glance, a closer look revealed a false conclusion: Since positive and negative differences balance each other out, missing stocks became “invisible” on the system side.

The result: stock accuracy of just 70 percent, missing goods in stores and time-consuming communication channels for error diagnosis.

In a pilot store, the company successfully tested an RFID-based application in the areas of inventory and replenishment processes.

Johan Stenström, Supply Chain Developer at Stadium, reports in an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global how the implementation of the retail solution Clarity by SML generates numerous advantages for the company – even beyond the actual objective.
