Retailers Take A New Approach To Addressing Out-of-Stocks - Part 3
Innovative retailers are using RFID technology as a common fabric across many of its merchandise- centric applications to gain real-time insight into merchandise status and to take necessary steps to anticipate and reduce out-of-stocks. In this final series installment, we’ll take a look at how Checkpoint Systems has developed an innovative and efficient approach to this problem.
In Part 1 of this discussion on how retailers can reduce out-of-stocks and improve merchandise availability, we discussed the new market realities facing retailers, including tighter margins, shifting shopper behavior and the need for hyper-accurate inventory availability status. In this installment, we cover how innovative retailers are taking an integrated, intelligent and insightful approach to addressing issues related to inventory management and shrink management in a cohesive manner, often using RFID technology to achieve their most important goals.
Retailing has always been a tough business, marked by demanding consumers, tight profit margins and intense competition. Retailers – even the most successful ones – also have had to confront and overcome various operational challenges such as managing inventories, controlling shrink, representing their brands in an innovative and attractive manner and maximizing every square foot of selling space, while improving shoppers’ experience.
Imaginarium, a leading retailer of products and merchandise for early childhood education and children’s toys, likes to bill itself as having “the prettiest toy shops in the world.” But Imaginarium is savvy enough to recognize that aesthetically pleasing store environments do more than attract shoppers and their children: they also can attract potential thieves.
In this case study from Checkpoint Systems, a leading Spanish supermarket network adds antennas and high-theft solutions as part of its store refurbishment program.
