Checkpoint Systems Announces C&A International RFID Roll-Out With Full DC Integration
Having successfully introduced the technology in Germany and recently added RFID source tagging to new product categories, including menswear, children’s clothing and suits, the leading European fashion retailer has completed the RFID roll-out in a third of its stores in France in 2015, with the remaining stores to be ready by mid-2016.
C&A is integrating RFID into its France-based DC to significantly scale up the number of RFID-tagged items and enable full merchandise visibility within the supply chain. This move also means that the retailer has shifted the creation of store advance ship notices from supplier to DC, based on an automated and more accurate process. The reading performance, speed and flexibility of the Checkpoint DC solution, on top of having one single software system for both DC and store, were paramount to C&A in optimizing the use of the RFID solution.
C&A will install Checkpoint’s OAT Foundation Suite software and RFID hardware at its DC, while its software and POS readers will be introduced in-store to improve inventory accuracy and reduce out-of-stock scenarios
