ADT's leading inventory intelligence solutions helps retailers achieve omni-channel and store strategies
ADT, a leading global provider of retail performance and security solutions, will be demonstrating its market leading inventory intelligence solutions that help retailers achieve omni-channel and store strategies by driving significant improvements in inventory accuracy, control and retail execution.
ADT's highly interactive stand demonstration features "a day in the life" illustration of inventory moving through a store environment, from shipping and receiving, to put away and shelf replenishment, to point of sale and beyond.
Visitors will see firsthand the level of control and insight offered by ADT's systems and be able to better understand how Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can co-exist and complement each other, and offer incremental value to retailers.
"By providing dual technology tags with complementary EAS and RFID technologies in a shared small footprint hard tag, retailers can make the most of their existing EAS systems while still moving towards inventory visibility with RFID and other technologies," said John Smith, VP Retail, Continental Europe, ADT Fire & Security. "Our solutions can be deployed as RFID only, RFID and EAS together, or ‘RFID ready' EAS, delivering value today while protecting a retailer's investment into the future."
Inventory accuracy has an impact on shelf availability, shopper satisfaction and the financial performance of the store, and is fundamental to the success of any retailer. Inventory intelligence can drive significant improvements in inventory accuracy, approaching 99% in some cases. This accuracy prevents products from becoming out-of-stock, a major contributing factor to customer dissatisfaction which accounts for more than $93 billion in lost sales.
ADT's inventory intelligence suite is one of the most robust and mature solutions serving the retail industry
"The elimination of out-of-stocks has become the most important driver behind the adoption of item-level RFID for two important reasons; it has a direct influence on sales, and it increases customer satisfaction," said John Smith, VP Retail, Continental Europe, ADT Fire & Security. "RFID also enables increased automation that can significantly shorten the physical inventory processes, improve replenishment processes, reduce theft, and free up in-store staff to focus on customers."
ADT's inventory intelligence suite is one of the most robust and mature solutions serving the retail industry today and has been built on many years of experience deploying pilots and rollouts for customers in North America and Europe. Most importantly, ADT supports and maintains these mission-critical systems for the most demanding of retailers, including a worldwide roll out for American Apparel.
