Alfonso Vivancos, CEO at Scalpers, explains: “RFID is the first step in our digitalization process and essentially it is the pillar for our future growth strategy. Scalpers is a fast growing fashion retailer and it is our ambition to become top of mind globally in menswear fashion. But we realize that this can only be achieved if our operations have a solid foundation and the inventory data we work with is accurate.”
Nedap’s !D Cloud software suite is a Software-as-a-Service solution specifically developed for retail RFID applications. It offers retailers the quickest route to implement RFID and improve their in-store stock accuracy to over 98%. Real-time insights into the stock levels and the exact location of each item also enables the successful introduction of Omni channel services.
As part of the initiative, Scalpers will also verify inbound and outbound shipments in their distribution center using RFID tunnels, with a view to improve the product availability for replenishment and online orders. In addition, Scalpers introduces RFID-based EAS readers to track if items leaving the store have been paid for. This enables a more seamless checkout as customers can now also pay via mobile checkout.
