iD Cloud Supply Chain

Scan it fast, ship it right

A positive shopping experience requires full supply chain visibility. So you need to know exactly where products come from, how they got here, and where they are now.

iD Cloud Supply Chain makes it easy and efficient for brands and retailers to automate product tracking in warehouses, logistics hubs, and distribution centers. Our solutions will guarantee accurate shipments and provide real-time inventory insights.

The single point of stock

Ensuring that products are responsibly sourced, sustainably managed, and always available drives an excellent omnichannel experience. 

In a world where different sales channels (such as stores, e-com, and online platforms) are connected, it becomes crucial to know where products are. iD Cloud Supply Chain makes products visible across their entire lifecycle. It provides one single point of stock in real-time, which unlocks unseen insights into the provenance, journey, and real-time location of inventory.

Boost process efficiency

Using RFID makes handling processes in warehouses and distribution centers more efficient by leveraging the technology’s capabilities to capture products in bulk and distance. As a result, product data is captured seamlessly, efficiently, and up to 25 times faster than manual handling.

iD Cloud Supply Chain and the deployment of RFID read points allow for the automation and optimization of data capturing, verification steps, and seamless integration with the merchandise flow.


Ensure shipment accuracy

Customers don’t accept products being unavailable or inaccurately delivered. So timely and accurate shipping is vital.

iD Cloud Supply Chain automatically verifies shipments’ accuracy and captures all inventory movements on a unique item level. So the entire supply chain can be managed based on accurate stock information.


Create stock visibility

Achieving total stock visibility is the foundation for unlocking “buy & return anywhere” concepts and enabling circularity.

With iD Cloud Supply Chain, it is possible to track products’ location in real-time, trace their provenance and manage their status as they travel through the supply chain. In addition, it connects supply chain partners, internal departments, and even consumer apps to one system holding all stock information in a central repository.

iD Cloud Supply Chain enables brands and retailers to streamline processes in warehouses, distribution centers, and even at the source with RFID technology.   

E-com order verification

Ensuring customers get what they ordered: shipments are checked with RFID-enabled read-points after picking. As a result, e-com orders are verified seamlessly, and customers receive the right products without additional manual effort.

Seamless shopping, across all channels
Outgoing shipments verification

Automatically verify outgoing shipments so that every unit shipped is correct. Making sure that sales channels are supplied accurately can boost customer loyalty. Furthermore, brands can prevent chargebacks from wholesale clients claiming incorrect deliveries.

Make sure shipments are correct
Incoming shipments verification

Prevent supplier fraud and instantly spot what is missing. Identify under-deliveries or other errors to ensure that the distribution center can operate based on accurate inventory information. Quickly and efficiently check all goods received at the unique item level and compare them to the goods expected from the factory and returns from stores.

Returns handling

Returns handling enables seamless product registration to add the items to the stock immediately.

Resell what just has been returned
Tagging & label printing

Print RFID labels in the DC. For example, in the case of seasonal carry-overs or returned articles without RFID labels. RFID printers handle print jobs from a barcode scan or an external order.

Brand authentication & Grey market identification

Combining unique product identities with its destined channel or partner makes it easy to verify if products are sold in the right market segment or channel and identify misuse.

Control brand and distribution integrity
Supply Chain Compliance

Customers increasingly expect to see where an item is coming from (and how it was produced), which requires secure tracking-and-tracing possibilities. With item-level identification, e.g., Digital Product Passports (DPP), it is possible to monitor the product journey and uncover its impact on the environment.

Cycle Counting

Stock information in distribution centers can be quickly outdated or inaccurate. RFID-based cycle counting can increase stock accuracy to ensure stock levels are correct and information systems can operate with the right data.
