Retail shops often struggle to track items in their store and warehouse. These businesses may have hundreds of thousands of pieces on hand at any time. Unfortunately, without proper monitoring, retail goods can go missing, costing shops a lot of money over time. It’s important that retail shops do all they can to track retail merchandise both on the sales floor and in storage.
Retail businesses can benefit from implementing an RFID solution. RFID allows managers and store clerks to track a wide range of retail merchandise in storage and on the sales floor. The system automatically keeps track of inventory counts. It knows when products move from storage to the sales floor. With configuration, the system can even alert management if retail items leave the store without a sale. RFID helps prevent theft and ensures accurate inventory counts.
How it Works
Small, discreet RFID tags are applied to each retail item. These tags attach like normal stickers to hang tags or directly on the retail item. RFID provides a unique identification for each item. Special scanners read these tags as merchandise travels through the store and storage locations.
In addition to tracking inventory in storage and on the sales floor, shops can use RFID to monitor employee activities. Staff members are given employee badges equipped with RFID tags encoded with their name, position, and other important information. The readers track staff member location as they travel around the facility. The system automatically records specific information such as when staff members sell an item or attempt to remove something from the store. The system provides everything needed to prevent loss and increase staff accountability.
