Sport Zone Raises Inventory Accuracy With RFID
expanding its use of RFID technology to eight stores, following a two-store pilot that raised inventory accuracy to 99 percent, thereby boosting sales. The company expects to recoup its investment within a year after deploying an RFID solution that helps it track when merchandise leaves its distribution center, arrives at stores and is put out on the sales floor. Sport Zone trialed the technology beginning in April 2015, by tagging and tracking all apparel and footwear sold at two of its stores. The technology includes Avery Dennison and Zebra Technologies hardware, as well as software provided by Tyco Retail Solutions.
