Nedap’s iD Cloud platform supports On in expanding growth across the entire supply chain

Nedap (AMS:NEDAP), the global leader in RFID solutions, is selected by On to deploy the iD Cloud platform in factories, warehouses, distributors and stores worldwide. This way, On can track and trace every single item from source to consumer. This leads to improved operations in warehouses and stores and protects products from being sold in unauthorized markets.

One of the world’s fastest-growing sportswear brands, On, is laying the foundation for optimum fulfillment, which is an important asset to remain the brand of choice for their rapidly expanding community. The innovative Swiss brand has begun implementing iD Cloud in a number of its facilities, including factories, warehouses, distributors, and stores globally.

Utilizing radio waves, RFID technology enables wireless identification and tracking of objects, providing efficient data capture and real-time monitoring, especially beneficial in use cases such as supply chain management. On was already familiar with the technology, and benefits of RFID, and decided to run a pilot program in cooperation with Nedap to test their iD Cloud technology. Utilizing detailed item-level data throughout the process – from manufacturing to sales, swift return processing, and loss prevention – the partnership has shown positive results up to this point.

“We have begun implementing RFID across our supply chain, enhancing accuracy in lead time data and optimizing inbound and outbound processes.” Explains Craig Foster, Head of Technology at On, “This provides us with valuable insights into shipment expectations, origins, and distribution channels, supporting our commitment to an exceptional brand experience, while also operating more efficiently and sustainably. Choosing Nedap’s iD Cloud technology is a part of our long term plan, providing end-to-end coverage and scalability.”

Hilbert Dijkstra, General Manager iD Cloud at Nedap comments: “We are delighted to be selected by On. We feel their unique and forward-thinking approach is the perfect base for their ambitious growth plans, and it has already proved to be working. We are excited to accompany On during this journey and look forward to helping them implement future use cases that can be found in, for example, product lifecycle insights driven by data coming out of our iD Cloud platform.”
