America Today kiest voor RFID-oplossing van Nedap

Eerste RFID roll-out in de Nederlandse retailmarkt

Nederland, Groenlo, 19 Februari 2019

Fashion retailer America Today, onderdeel van Coolinvestments, heeft besloten om in haar 69 winkels in de Benelux de !D Cloud RFID software van Nedap te gaan implementeren om de voorraadnauwkeurigheid structureel te verhogen en daarmee productbeschikbaarheid te garanderen. De roll-out staat gepland voor de 2e helft van 2019.

Op zoek naar de business case
Om te onderzoeken of er daadwerkelijk voldoende basis voor een business case is, is America Today in het najaar van 2018 samen met Nedap een pilot in 3 winkels gestart. Tijdens de pilot werd een wekelijkse voorraadtelling met de !D Cloud software en een RFID-handlezer uitgevoerd wat resulteerde in een verbetering van de voorraadnauwkeurigheid van gemiddeld 75% naar 98%.

Jonathan Kahn, CFO van America Today, licht toe: “Wij beseften dat onze voorraadnauwkeurigheid een enorme bottleneck ging worden voor onze omnichannel ambities. Daarom zijn we samen met Nedap gaan onderzoeken of er een business case is en die bleek er te zijn. We hebben er voor gekozen om de GS1 standaarden te volgen en zo de samenwerking met al onze Supply Chain partners meer mogelijkheden te bieden in de toekomt. Wij zijn er 100% van overtuigd dat RFID ons enorm gaat helpen om veel meer inzicht en controle over onze voorraden te krijgen.”

Arjan Pruiksma, Business Developer bij Nedap Retail, vult aan: “Wij zijn zeer verheugd dat America Today als eerste Nederlandse kledingretailer de stap neemt om RFID te implementeren met Nedap. Net als andere retailers heeft America Today geen betrouwbare voorraaddata wat hen belemmert om hun winkels en hun online kanalen echt met elkaar te integreren. Wij kijken er enorm naar uit om samen aan deze RFID journey te beginnen.”

Voorraadnauwkeurigheid met RFID
De !D Cloud-softwaresuite van Nedap is een SaaS-oplossing (Software as a Service) speciaal ontwikkeld voor de retailsector. De software geeft inzicht in voorraadniveaus en de exacte locatie van elk item wat tevens de basis vormt voor omnichannel-concepten zoals Click & Collect en Ship-from-Store. Kahn: “Onze grootste drijfveer is omnichannel, maar bij een technologie zoals RFID is het heel verleidelijk om gelijk alles te willen doen. Wij hebben gekozen om in eerste instantie te focussen op het maximale resultaat met zo min mogelijk complexiteit. De eerste resultaten zijn veelbelovend en ook de winkels zijn enthousiast. Wij kunnen niet wachten om aan de slag te gaan.”

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.

Groenlo, the Netherlands — January 11, 2016

The Italian fashion retailer Calzedonia Group has selected Nedap as solution provider for security solutions such as electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems, video surveillance and intrusion detection systems. The multi-year contract encompasses the supply and installation of RF EAS hardware and consumables for loss prevention purposes. The first step entails the roll-out of EAS systems to about 50 Tezenis and Intimissimi stores. Worldwide, Calzedonia has around 4000 stores across 40 countries and the first installations were already completed in the last quarter of 2015.

Shrink reduction & future-readiness
After extensive field-testing of different EAS suppliers, Calzedonia selected Nedap’s EAS solution because of its reliable detection performance, easy connectivity and the future-proof RFID upgrade path, which makes it possible to upgrade to RFID technology in the future without the need for major additional hardware investments. All connected systems deliver real-time insights into the system and store performance for monitoring and benchmarking.

The responsible Global Risk, Security & Compliance Manager at Calzedonia stated: “As a fast growing company, we were looking for a global partner that is capable of offering the same high quality and service levels around the world. We were impressed by Nedap’s pro-active approach to lower the losses in our test stores and we are confident that the EAS roll-out to all our locations will deliver a significant impact on our profitability.”

Global partnership
While Calzedonia currently has stores all over Europe and several stores in Asia and South America, the retailer recently announced plans for expansion in the United States. According to Rob Schuurman, Managing Director at Nedap Retail: “We are proud to have been selected by Calzedonia and are looking forward to supporting the Calzedonia brands with their global expansion plans by giving the merchandise the most effective and customer-friendly protection. Our focus for 2016 is on efficient and speedy implementation through our global partner network.”
