To gain the benefits from using !D Cloud in your stores, the articles in your store need to have RFID labels on them. Nedap provides you with all the ways to do this, which allow you to move smoothly from proving the business case in a few stores to a full scale roll-out. Where in-store or DC tagging is replaced with source-tagging, we work together with the most advanced and reliable RFID label suppliers in the world and will take care of RFID-specific topics, like item serialization, best label/chip combination for your application selection and quality testing.
If you want to work with your existing trim provider, that’s also fine with us. If needed, we will advise on the requirements and educate them on the RFID technology aspects and put processes in place to verify the quality and fit-for-purpose of the RFID labels they propose. In the end, the solution is only as good as the weakest link and we at Nedap like to partner with you to make sure the total solution works as designed and gets you the return on investment we jointly aimed for.
If your products already have RFID labels, great! If they are encoded with GS1 compatible standards, you can start with !D Cloud tomorrow.
