Outdoor Voices selects Nedap to unlock best-in-class omnichannel services

Boston, MA, September 5, 2019

Digital-first activewear brand implements RFID inventory management to improve web order fulfillment and on-shelf availability

Today Nedap announces that digital first activewear brand Outdoor Voices has selected !D Cloud, Nedap’s leading RFID inventory management platform. One of the key objectives within this deployment is achieving full inventory visibility. This implies that all items, whether located in the distribution center or in stores, are consolidated into one centralized inventory hub. This allows Outdoor Voices to further unlock omnichannel services, such as ship-from-store, without the need for separate stock in order to fulfill web orders and replenish stores.

“Outdoor Voices is a revolutionary brand that’s a prime example of fulfilling the omni-channel dream, merging the online and offline experience into one omni-channel”, says Rob Schuurman, President Retail Nedap Inc. “They selected the !D Cloud as a turn-key solution to further enable the omni-channel journey to their customers. One of the key objectives is achieving full and reliable inventory visibility throughout their retail chain to successfully deliver concepts like ship-from-store and BOPIS.”

Stores are community drivers and act as hubs for Recreation and #DoingThings
Nate Peterson, Vice President of Supply Chain at Outdoor Voices comments: “For us as a digitally native brand, it’s important that our online experience mirrors that of our shops and this plays an important part in our strategy of activating locally and amplifying digitally. Our job is ensuring that we have the key partners in place who can provide best-in-class experiences for our customers so that regardless of whether or not they purchase online or through our shops, we send them home with the apparel they’ve been looking for.”

RFID is a no-brainer
The Outdoor Voices team already had experience using RFID and knew the value it brings retail organizations. Kevin Harwood, Vice President of Technology at Outdoor Voices explains: “Nedap enables our store employees to better manage our omnichannel experience, where we can complete inventory counts with 99 percent accuracy and therefore expose our customers to every last unit available within our inventory. This coupled with the seamless integration of our newly implemented NewStore technology will ensure we can serve our customers wherever they are located, online or offline.”

Ship-from-store
As a digital-first company, online orders play a significant part of Outdoor Voices’ business. Order fulfillment therefore is crucial. One of the key results of the pilot project is that the amount of lost sales due to inaccurate stock dropped significantly. Web orders are located and picked from store shelves using Zebra RFID handhelds equipped with the !D Cloud app. Orders are then shipped from there when they are not available in the distribution center. In addition, in-store safety stocks can be lowered as full inventory visibility allows for efficient replenishment.
Besides the benefits to their omnichannel journey, the use of RFID allows for increased product availability and improved on-shelf availability that has ultimately transpired in a lift for Outdoor Voices.

Hilbert Dijkstra, Director of Business Development for !D Cloud Americas says: “Full inventory visibility paves the way to unmatched omnichannel services, allowing Outdoor Voices to continue their journey of building the No. 1 digital activewear brand. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with this young and ambitious retailer, enabling them to do what they do best: grow their community and serve them in the best possible way. Wherever, on whichever social platform, and whenever they decide to buy”.

La soluzione integrata checkout di Nedap aumenta le vendite e riduce le differenze inventariali

Paesi Bassi, Groenlo, 3 settembre 2019

La prima antenna RF nel retail alimentare consente ai retailer di combinare la sorveglianza degli articoli con la customer-friendliness
Oggi, Nedap annuncia il lancio della nuova antenna Checkout per la prevenzione delle differenze inventariali nel retail alimentare. L’antenna Checkout può raggiungere una percentuale di risposta agli allarmi prossima al 100%, ed elimina i costi di vigilanza. Questa nuova soluzione riduce anche lo stress causato dagli allarmi, sia per i clienti, che per il personale di cassa.

“Con l’introduzione dell’antenna Checkout, stiamo compiendo un grande passo avanti verso l’incontro tra la customer-friendliness e la sorveglianza nel retail alimentare”, ha dichiarato Dennis Brian, Direttore Vendite della divisione Food Retail di Nedap. “Questa antenna viene collocata all’estremità del nastro trasportatore, prima del terminale di pagamento. Consente al personale e ai clienti di mantenere il contatto visivo durante le operazioni di cassa. Gli operatori potranno così rispondere al suo allarme discreto con naturalezza, convertendo potenziali perdite in vendite. Si evitano situazioni di stress presso i banchi cassa, contribuendo ad una piacevole shopping experience e migliorando al tempo stesso i livelli di sorveglianza sugli articoli. Questa soluzione aumenta notevolmente i tassi di risposta agli allarmi rispetto ai sistemi EAS perimetrali, posizionati alle uscite dei punti vendita, ed elimina i costi per il personale di vigilanza”.

Adatto per banchi cassa nuovi ed esistenti
Nedap ha già integrato la tecnologia della nuova antenna Checkout nei banchi cassa di diversi produttori leader di settore, per garantire una facile integrazione, un’estetica gradevole ed un utilizzo ottimale dello spazio. L’antenna Checkout è idonea anche per i banchi cassa esistenti e utilizza ancora meno spazio rispetto alla maggior parte dei modelli di antenne tradizionali disponibili sul mercato.

Samsøe & Samsøe sceglie la piattaforma RFID cloud-based di Nedap per il roll-out europeo

Paesi Bassi, Groenlo, 29 agosto 2019

La completa visibilità sulle scorte migliora la disponibilità dei prodotti nei punti vendita e nella supply chain

Nedap, leader globale nelle soluzioni retail basate su RFID, ha annunciato oggi che Samsøe & Samsøe, tra i fashion retailer danesi con il maggior tasso di crescita, ha scelto !D Cloud, la piattaforma RFID leader di Nedap, per poter sviluppare l’implementazione RFID. Noto come marchio internazionale caratterizzato dal minimalismo scandinavo, Samsøe & Samsøe è pronto per espandere l’uso della tecnologia RFID oltre il punto vendita e sviluppare una strategia omnicanale orientata al futuro.

!D Cloud di Nedap offre a Samsøe & Samsøe la visibilità in tempo reale sui livelli delle scorte e la precisa ubicazione degli articoli all’interno del punto vendita, eliminando il disallineamento tra e-commerce e negozio. L’applicazione della tecnologia RFID migliora di oltre il 98% l’accuratezza delle scorte, con conseguente miglioramento della disponibilità dei prodotti e un incremento delle vendite.

“Uno dei valori più forti del nostro marchio è la semplicità”, afferma Tommy Nimand, CFO di Samsøe & Samsøe. “Questo si riflette nel design delle collezioni ed è anche un aspetto importante della nostra shopping experience. Il nostro obiettivo è raggiungere la completa visibilità delle scorte attraverso la tecnologia RFID, sia in magazzino che nei punti vendita. Vincere la sfida dell’esaurimento scorte, libera il pieno potenziale omnicanale e offre la migliore customer experience in tutte le declinazioni del retail. Vogliamo che i nostri clienti possano fare acquisti e fare resi ovunque, che abbiano comprato a Copenaghen o a Londra”.

Virtual Shielding™
Virtual Shielding™, la più recente innovazione della piattaforma !D Cloud di Nedap (in attesa di brevetto), apprezzata da Samsøe & Samsøe perché consente al personale del punto vendita di leggere facilmente le etichette RFID con dispositivi portatili e verificare automaticamente l’esatta posizione degli articoli con una notevole precisione. La tecnologia di “smart allocation” risolve l’inconveniente della lettura di etichette RFID nei locali adiacenti ed elimina la necessità di installare nei magazzini schermature fisiche realizzate con fogli di alluminio o vernici che bloccano l’RFID. Questa innovazione consente ai retailer di risparmiare tempo e denaro.

Disponibilità a magazzino garantita nel flagship store dal design pulito
Il nuovo flagship store Samsøe & Samsøe di Copenaghen è ispirato al concept minimalista. “Per creare un look essenziale e pulito esponiamo solo due articoli per modello. La tecnologia Virtual Shielding di Nedap rileva quali articoli si trovano al piano del punto vendita e quali in magazzino, consentendoci di esprimere un’estetica pulita e semplice nel punto vendita, offrire la migliore customer experience, e non perdere alcuna vendita a causa di un’imprecisione delle scorte”, afferma Nimand.

“Siamo orgogliosi di collaborare con Samsøe & Samsøe, un’azienda che persegue una strategia omnicanale innovativa al servizio del cliente”, ha dichiarato Elles te Boome-Harbers, Global Sales Business Developer di Nedap Retail. “Usando la tecnologia RFID basata sul cloud come “lingua comune” saremo in grado di omologare tutti i fornitori di etichette, dei sistemi ERP e dei POS dell’azienda, garantendo la tracciabilità dei singoli articoli lungo l’intera supply chain” spiega Elles te Boome-Harbers. “Non vediamo l’ora di uniformare ulteriormente i processi interni di Samsøe & Samsøe per soddisfare le esigenze e le richieste future dei loro clienti, a garanzia di un sistema di retailing realmente omnicanale”.

Sorveglianza elettronica degli articoli basata su RFID
Oltre alla tecnologia RFID per la gestione degli stock, gli ingressi dei negozi Samsøe & Samsøe sono dotati di sistemi EAS sospesi Nedap iD Top RFID-based. Questa soluzione consente di avere accessi ai punti vendita liberi e aperti, garantendo allo stesso tempo un elevato livello di protezione della merce esposta. Tutti gli articoli Samsøe & Samsøe sono etichettati alla fonte con tag RFID. I vantaggi che ne derivano sono molteplici: innanzitutto viene meno l’esigenza di utilizzare ulteriori sistemi di prevenzione delle differenze inventariali, si riducono i costi dell’attività di applicazione delle etichette, che quindi non viene più svolta in negozio, e si ha garanzia che il 100% della merce è etichettata.

Nedap launches RFID Loss Prevention Academy

The Netherlands, Groenlo, August 27th 2019 

Online academy supports retail executives by providing a resource center of knowledge, study guides, and tests to help aid in adoption and education of RFID technology

Nedap, the global leader in RFID-based retail solutions, today launches the RFID Loss Prevention Academy. This is an online learning environment, which consist of free online courses, study guides and tests. This will help retail executives to develop critical skills, test knowledge, and demonstrate expertise in the area of RFID-based loss prevention.

Rob Schuurman, Managing Director of Nedap Retail comments: “Reduction in inventory due to shoplifting, employee theft, or other errors, significantly impacts a retailer’s bottom line – to the tune of nearly $100 billion annually in direct losses worldwide. Regardless of where retail operations are located, shrink is a universal foe.
Nowadays, RFID is the technology that enables retailers to prevent losses. With this e-learning, we as Nedap are sharing our expertise in the field of RFID-technology. This will help retailers to gain more understanding in the area of RFID-based EAS, enabling them to reduce the impact of losses affecting the retail industry.”

RFID-based EAS
RFID-based EAS technology creates a real-time understanding of what, when and how specific items go missing by integrating item-level inventory and loss prevention data. This new insight leverages EAS and RFID inventory-visibility technologies to provide a complete pictures of loss events to help take loss prevention efforts to the next level.

  • Track and manage retail shrinkage from all source to store, in real time
  • Facilitate secured & seamless checkouts
  • Creating Unique Shopper Experiences with open entrances
  • Differentiate between actual store shrink and other forms of inventory distortion
  • Pinpoint shrink sources, in the store and all along the retail supply chain
  • Ability to respond directly to alarms using an Alarm Notification App
  • Analysis of system data, which predicts potential shrinkage

Closing the gap between loss prevention and inventory management
More and more retailers and brands are choosing RFID to gain insight into their inventory at item level. This ensures optimal product availability. The foundation of most RFID implementations is that all items are provided with an RFID label at the source of production. The same RFID label is used for inventory management and item security. This means that no additional loss prevention is needed, as stock is already 100% security tagged from source. This eliminates additional in-store tagging costs and in the same time, it enables retailers to unlock omnichannel services such as secured mobile checkout.

RFID for loss prevention is also available as a stand-alone option. This provides retailers with a future-proof loss prevention system if they prefer to implement RFID for inventory management at a later stage.

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.
