Groenlo, The Netherlands – November 6, 2017
Spanish fashion retailer Misako will use Nedap’s iD Cloud Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) software solution in its 200+ stores and its distribution centre. By using iD 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.
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 iD 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 (BOPIS) 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 webshops. True integration means that we have one single pool of products and we know the exact location of each individual item.”
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 iD Cloud app on a mobile device to determine which items are available. iD 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.
