170 Fiorella Rubino brand stores equipped with Nedap’s iD Top RFID overhead reader

Groenlo, The Netherlands – 13 July 2017

Nedap’s iD Top Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) overhead reader for electronic article surveillance has been installed in 170 Fiorella Rubino brand stores throughout Italy. Fiorella Rubino is part of Miroglio Group, a leading fashion chain with 1.100 owned and franchise stores. The RFID rollout at the Fiorella Rubino stores is part of Miroglio’s Retail 4.0 initiative, aimed at improving its overall retail efficiency, loss prevention and service level.

Hans Hoegstedt, CEO of Miroglio Fashion: “We are always looking for ways to provide our customers with a richer, more complete shopping experience and to increase and improve the efficiency of our outlets. Here, the introduction of RFID is of key importance to us.”

Loss prevention with RFID
For the implementation of its RFID-reader in the 170 stores of the Fiorella Rubino brand, Nedap collaborated with technology company Temera. Temera’s modular TMR Core software platform enables RFID-based product tracking throughout the supply chain – from production to POS – to improve a retailer’s stock accuracy and enable omnichannel services.

Nedap’s ceiling-mounted iD Top is installed at store exits, to identify any unpaid item leaving the store. When an RFID label is read by the iD Top, data is shared directly with the TMR Core platform. Arcangelo D’Onofrio, CEO at Temera: “We tested RFID overhead readers of different suppliers during the Proof-of-Concept phase and came to the conclusion that the iD Top is the best-performing overhead reader in the market. Especially the advanced beam steering technology, which enables reliable label detection, is a unique feature that makes the iD Top especially suited for loss prevention purposes.”

Nedap wins Brique d’Or innovation award with !D Top

RFID solution for retail stores offers more selling space without false alarms

Groenlo, the Netherlands — December 7, 2016

At the 16th Briques d’Or ceremony organized by the club Enseigne & Innovation in France, Nedap won the Brique d’Or for the most innovative retail product with its !D Top – a ceiling-mounted RAIN RFID reader. Nedap’s !D Top was recognized as the most innovative solution by the jury, because this ceiling-mounted RFID reader takes up no selling space in the store, offers reliable detection and prevents false alarms with state-of-the-art tag filtering and direction detection.

No loss of selling space
As no floor space is required, the !D Top is a very suitable EAS solution for stores with limited space in the entrance area, because it keeps the store entrance clean and open. The !D Top overhead readers blend seamlessly into the store design and filter out non-moving tags in the direct environment of the reader. This makes it possible to place tagged merchandise in the premium selling space near the store entrance.

Tag filtering and direction detection
The !D Top is equipped with a sophisticated antenna array that dynamically creates a multitude of independent beams in different directions. With this beam steering functionality, the smart integrated reader determines whether a product is really moving or if it is just a stationary tag. The functionality also detects in which direction each RFID label is moving, which makes it possible to reliably monitor if a person carrying a garment is actually leaving the store or just passing underneath the !D Top.

Maximum performance with compact design
With a size of 15” by 15” (37 cm x 37 cm), the !D Top is an extremely small and lightweight integrated RFID reader that can be fitted to the ceiling using a standard VESA mount, keeping the entrance of the store completely open. The !D Top can be used stand-alone as RFID-based EAS system or as an RFID upgrade to any existing traditional EAS system.

EuroCIS 2016: Nedap showcases stock availability solutions

Groenlo, the Netherlands — February 9, 2016

At the upcoming EuroCIS trade show in Düsseldorf, from 23 – 25 February 2016, Nedap presents stock availability solutions for the global retail sector. The key solutions presented by Nedap (booth 10A02) are the !Sense hardware portfolio and the !D Cloud software suite. These solutions enable retailers to permanently lower their shrinkage levels and significantly improve their on-shelf merchandise availability.

!Sense : Concealed EAS systems & effective alarm management
Nedap’s !Sense portfolio includes RF/ RFID antennas and smart readers for electronic article surveillance (EAS) and in-store merchandise tracking. At EuroCIS, Nedap will showcase its hybrid (RF/ RFID) pedestals and concealed solutions – a RAIN RFID overhead reader and a door-mounted RF antenna. These solutions blend seamlessly into the store design, offer a better customer experience and enable a larger selling space in the highly frequented entrance area.

To support the store staff with their alarm management, Nedap presents plug & play IP-integrations with pagers and the cameras and video management software from Axis Communications. With the pager integration, staff members instantly receive a discrete signal in case of an EAS or metal detection alarm while the Axis integration makes it possible to record all EAS events in the video management software. The Axis Camera Application for !Sense can also raise alarms and trigger live views. This enables time savings and a more effective shrink reduction.

!D Cloud : Accurate stock data & omni-channel enablement
The !D Cloud software suite is a Software as a Service solution specifically developed for retail applications, giving retailers the quickest route to implement RFID and improve their in-store stock accuracy to over 98%. !D Cloud translates the collected data from RAIN RFID readers in the stores into comprehensive lists that highlight the out-of-stocks and overstocks. Thereby, the causes of stock differences, through losses or administrative errors, can be identified and dealt with more quickly.

A better understanding of the actual on-shelf availability enables retailers to finally do perfect replenishment which proves to significantly increase sales. The detailed insights into the exact location of each item also makes it possible to connect the stock of the physical stores with the retailer’s online platforms. This is the basis to successfully introduce omni-channel concepts like “click & collect” or “buy online & return offline” without adding complexity or a separate supply chain.
