To achieve full stock visibility

An excellent shopping experience starts with ensuring that products are always available, and orders can be fulfilled from any stock location.  

Nedap’s leading RFID-based stock visibility platform enables brands and retailers to make every step in their supply chain visible, providing business benefits such as process efficiency, shipment accuracy, and stock visibility.

Learn how Scalpers achieved real-time, item-level stock visibility with RFID

To build a solid foundation that enables their future growth, iconic fashion brand Scalpers wanted to create one Single Point of Truth (SPoT) that could accurately create item-level visibility throughout their supply chain. Achieving complete inventory visibility in their stores and distribution centers is the foundation to always have the right products available, at the right place, at the right time, wherever it is fulfilled.

Inbound & Outbound

Typically, retailers start their RFID deployment in the stores to raise the stock accuracy to 98+%. However, once all merchandise is tagged with RFID labels, it is an easy step to apply the technology in logistics. Optimizing the distribution processes by applying RFID read-points, e.g., for inbound and packing (outbound) verification, gives valuable insights into the flow of goods and creates stock visibility in your supply chain.

Omnichannel

Customers expect their desired items to be available anytime and anywhere – no matter if they browse in a physical store or online. With so many shopping choices, retailers have to offer multiple options – such as ship-to-home, ship-to-store, ship-from-store, click-and-collect, and a range of return choices – to compete. However, it is a huge challenge to keep this promise if you do not know where your inventory sits across your enterprise.

Reverse logistics

A full, customer-centric omnichannel strategy requires agile order and pick-up/delivery services and needs frictionless return options. However, allowing customers to return items to any store in any country has consequences for the stock data and reverse logistics processes. Here, the !D Cloud EPCIS repository can bring the needed visibility regarding the stock levels and locations.

How stores become the epicenter of a seamless supply chain

Omnichannel retail requires stock visibility

In the omnichannel world, products are not only shipped from a DC to store locations but also the other way round and dynamically transferred between stores. Customers have the chance to purchase and return products at any point in the supply chain. Since the location and the status of items are rapidly changing, stock information can quickly get outdated and inaccurate. Thanks to RFID and !D Cloud, it is possible to easily, seamlessly, and efficiently capture all inventory movements on a unique item level.

Agile order fulfillment – enhanced customer experience

Enabled by an EPCIS repository

In order to not disappoint customers and fulfill orders in a flexible way, retailers increasingly open up their traditional supply chains. That means, new shipments do not necessarily just arrive from a distribution center anymore – new stock can also come from an e-commerce warehouse, nearby stores or any other stock source. In this omnichannel reality, achieving total stock visibility across multiple channels is the foundation to route and orchestrate orders, wherever they come from or they need to be delivered to.
