DOVER, NH— Barcodes? Manual? However you count inventory, can you do it as fast, or faster, than RFID? Find out at the NRF Show. Truecount Corporation is making it fun for retailers to test the speed and accuracy of RFID technology with an exclusive RFID Challenge. The challenge will be ongoing at the Truecount demonstration exhibit (booth C-549) during the National Retail Federation’s annual BIG SHOW, January 13-16, 2013 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
“We want everyone to experience first-hand the speed, high visibility and near-perfect accuracy of item-level RFID applied to inventory management,” says Truecount CEO, Zander Livingston. RFID is something retailers of every size will be—and should be— evaluating in 2013.”
Let’s face it, inventory and cycle counts are business critical for retail operations, providing the data required for reordering, forecasting and balancing the books. At the same time, it is time consuming, often means shutting down operations for 24- 48 hours or more, and few employees look forward to the task. (Did you ever hear anyone say ‘I love to count merchandise’?)
“RFID changes everything related to inventory,” adds Livingston. “With RFID, every item has an individual identification tag including data such as Item #, style, color, size and price. RFID tags can be scanned and read very quickly, without line of sight, and at a distance. No one needs to touch merchandise, or even open up boxes. One person can complete a count of roughly 4,000 items in minutes, and the results will be 99+ percent accurate”
Livingston points out that RFID has proven to be up to 100 times faster than barcodes and as much as 50 times faster than manual counts, so staff can perform cycle counting more frequently, providing precise, granular data on inventory whenever needed for real-time decision making.
