Nedap introduces 3rd iSense Lumen antenna

In-store hardware for article surveillance

Groenlo, The Netherlands, 20 November 2017

Today, Nedap announces the international launch of its iL33 Plexiglas article surveillance antenna for loss prevention in retail stores. The iL33 is the 3rd antenna in Nedap’s iSense Lumen product range, which was introduced earlier this year. It has an elegant design and delivers intuitive user feedback.

New Plexiglas design
The iL33 antenna easily blends in with a multitude of store designs with its combination of a Plexiglas body and metallic foot. The transparent design makes the antenna an unobtrusive element in the store entrance while the light effects are reinforced in case the alarm goes off. Additional sensors for customer counting and metal detection are fully integrated in the design.

Hilbert Dijkstra, Product Manager at Nedap Retail, comments: “We always strive to make loss prevention a natural part of the store design and the store processes. The new Lumen antenna is a great addition to our iSense Lumen product range. It truly reflects our design and functionality ambitions with its elegant looks and multiple alarm options for a variety of events.”

Intuitive user feedback
In line with the other iSense Lumen antennas, the iL33 antenna offers different light and sound effects, which enables store employees to react more effectively to an alarm. The multi-colored lights and state-of-the-art speakers notify the store staff about the cause and urgency of specific events, such as incoming and outgoing RF alarms, metal detection alarms and ‘wrong way’ detection to prevent that the store entrance is used as an exit.

Misako to use Nedap’s !D Cloud RFID software in 200+ stores

Groenlo, The Netherlands, 6 November 2017

Spanish fashion retailer Misako will use Nedap’s !D Cloud Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) software solution in its 200+ stores and in its distribution centre. By using !D Cloud, Misako is able to raise its stock accuracy to over 98%. Having full transparency of  its store stock levels is an essential part of the retailer’s international growth strategy.

Excellent match
Jean François Thuilliez, Deputy CEO at Misako: “Accurate stock data will strongly contribute to our current stores’ performance and enable our international expansion. We are a very lean organization and Nedap’s !D Cloud solution is an excellent match with our way of working. It is easy-to-use, light on our IT resources and highly scalable.”

By raising the stock accuracy on item-level to over 98%, Misako is able to increase the on-shelf availability, improve the DC-to-store replenishment and also improve the speed of their online and Click & Collect orders. Thuilliez: “In today’s omnichannel world, we need to know exactly where our merchandise is. Only then, we are able to speed up our processes and truly integrate our physical stores with our web shops. True integration means that we have one single pool of products and we know the exact location of each individual item.”

RFID in the cloud
All items are source tagged at the retailer’s production facilities. In the stores, staff members perform a weekly count using an RFID handheld reader and the !D Cloud app on a mobile device to determine which items are available. !D Cloud then highlights the discrepancies between Misako’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and the RFID count. Consequently, the causes of stock differences – through losses or administrative errors – can quickly be identified and dealt with.
