Acne Studios chooses Nedap’s !D Cloud for stock accuracy and Omnichannel services

Successful rollout in 12 countries accomplished in 3 months

Groenlo, The Netherlands, 9 May 2017

Nedap has signed a global agreement with Acne Studios, a Swedish high-end fashion brand, for the supply of its RFID software platform !D Cloud. The global rollout to Acne Studios’ 45 stores in 12 countries was accomplished in only three months. Using !D Cloud, the retailer aims to raise the in-store stock accuracy in their stores and enable omnichannel services.

Mattias Magnusson, CEO at Acne Studios, explains: “Our main challenge is how to unify the online and in-store experience and service in order to gain and maintain the trust of our customers. The only way to master this is by having a nearly 100% stock accuracy. Therefore, automating our stock taking with RFID was the logical next step.”

Fast RFID implementation plan
The pace of the RFID implementation at Acne Studios was extraordinarily high as it took only 3 months from the first proof-of-concept to the completion of the rollout. During this period, the ERP integration, staff training and RFID labelling of the merchandise was completed.

Magnusson adds: “Once we decided to move to RFID, we were looking for a cloud solution that fits our IT strategy. We believe that in today’s cloud empowered world, it does not make sense to opt for an on-premises software solution. Cloud solutions like !D Cloud, but also for other fields like CRM or e-commerce, enable us to scale much faster with only a fraction of the internal work load and ongoing costs.”

!D Cloud: Accurate stock data & omnichannel enablement
The !D Cloud software suite is specifically developed for retail applications to raise the retailer’s stock accuracy and support store employees with processes like in-store replenishment. Detailed insights into the actual stock levels also make it possible to connect the stock of the physical stores with the retailer’s online platforms.

iSense Lumen - iL45 RFID

Nedap introduces new iSense Lumen 3-in-1 RFID antenna

In-store hardware for article surveillance and article tracking

Groenlo, The Netherlands — May 3, 2017

Today, Nedap announces the global launch of its new iSense Lumen line. It is the latest extension of Nedap’s successful iSense hardware platform for article surveillance and article tracking in retail stores. In the first half of 2017, Nedap will introduce three iSense Lumen antennas starting with the Lumen iL45, which offers new user feedback functionalities. It can be used at multiple locations in a store, thus optimizing the retailer’s product availability.

Intuitive user feedback with light & sound
The iSense Lumen antenna line is designed to enhance the user experience through advanced light and sound options. The multi-colored lights and state-of-the-art speakers notify the store staff about  the cause and urgency of specific events with light and sound signals.

Hilbert Dijkstra, Product Manager at Nedap Retail, explains: “iSense Lumen is another big step forward in the development of article surveillance solutions. It is the result of great feedback we got after the introduction of iSense in 2014. With iSense, we completely redefined the way electronic article surveillance works, because of its intelligence. The system recognizes individual items, detects the direction of the item and gives instant feedback to the store staff.”

Intelligent 3-in-1 RFID antenna
The Lumen iL45 antenna can be placed at three key locations in a store to track article movements. At the entrance, it is able to detect which items are leaving the store and it will activate an alarm with items that have not been paid for, thus minimizing losses. The antenna can also be placed between the stock room and the sales floor to track article movements and in the back to track new deliveries.

“Product availability is an absolute necessity for retailers. Our solutions enable retailers to always have the right products available without adding complexity. Our iSense hardware platform is IP-based and uses open protocols, which makes information-exchange and integrations with other solutions very simple and straightforward,” says Rob Schuurman, Managing Director at Nedap Retail.
