New Research Reveals Benefits Of RFID For Apparel Suppliers
In a year-long project, researchers found the potential for suppliers to realize both top- and bottom-line improvements via increased inventory accuracy, cycle count reductions and minimized chargebacks. The results were presented during a workshop held by the VICS Item Level RFID Initiative at the National Retail Federation’s Big Show in New York. The research is available for download from the University of Arkansas Web site.
“The University of Arkansas report published today offers a greater understanding of the many uses of RFID technology for the apparel industry particularly in the area of inventory accuracy,” said AAFA Special Advisor Mary Howell. “By exploring these use cases, apparel and footwear brands can begin to see the full range of benefits RFID can provide when working to remain competitive in the global market by streamlining the supply chain and continuing to deliver quality, safe, and affordable clothes and shoes to American consumers.”
