Retailers are under intense pressure to grow revenues while managing the bottom line and providing customers with a better in-store experience. Real-time access to item-level data has become a critical component to achieve those objectives. Tyco's RFID-based Inventory Intelligence solutions provide retailers with the insights they need to ensure inventory availability regardless of how the customer chooses to shop or receive goods. Retailers can gain visibility into inventory location across the enterprise to quickly and efficiently satisfy shopper demand.
In 2012 RIS News reported, "Item-level RFID technology has had its share of false starts and setbacks in the retail industry, but the current embrace has undeniable momentum, powered by solid test results and business use cases, deployments by major retailers and the promise of significantly lower per tag prices." The article goes on to say, "A big factor in the technology's resurgence is that the vastly improved inventory visibility the technology delivers is also a crucial requirement for operating in today's omni-channel, increasingly mobile retail environment..." As demand steadily increases, Tyco is expecting to have shipped over 750 million Sensormatic brand RFID tags (with the ability to be re-circulated) by the fall of 2013. In addition, Tyco's Sensormatic RFID device shipments are expected to grow over 250% by then.
"Industry experts and retailers agree the market for RFID has reached a tipping point. As the global standards and technology have evolved, pricing options have become more attractive and retailers are realizing RFID can deliver compelling benefits to the store and to the enterprise," said Nancy Chisholm, vice president and general manager, Tyco Retail Solutions. "We have been at the forefront of RFID from the very start, helping pioneering retailers implement solutions that drive real-world value and performance. Our breadth of offerings and commitment to innovation has driven top retailers across the globe to partner with us for RFID and other retail performance solutions."
