lululemon, DSW, b8ta, and Zebra technologies presented on a panel at MIT about the intelligent integrated store their visions and current progress towards integrating the various functions, sensors, and systems in a retail store. The goal is to achieve a higher order of intelligence and detailed, granular, near real-time visibility into what is happening with each shopper, each associate, and each item in each store.
RFID and related technologies (e.g. sensors, software)
In a continued validation of software and solutions as a key factor in a successful RFID business, SMARTRAC has purchased Catalyst.
We describe a roadmap that starts with the high ROI use case of inventory management, using flexible/low-capital infrastructure, and then builds on that investment to implement other use cases to create further value, in areas such as omni-channel, display management, supply chain, and loss prevention.
Retailers have many choices when it comes to RFID reader infrastructure, from handhelds, fixed, POS, overhead, and more. Here we help sort through the choices, to figure out which one might be best for you.
ERP companies continue to broaden their reach and deepen their solutions…
SYSPRO’s road to IoT and Machine Learning.
In this first in a series, we discuss the many potential use cases for retailers implementing RFID, criteria to select the best place to start, and which initial use case is the one overwhelmingly being chosen by retailers as their starting point.
Integration is an evolving field, blending data, things and people across systems, mobile devices and the web. Over thirty systems and some important innovations are included in this article.
At the recent RFID Live conference, once again we saw an enormous range of new technologies, applications, and use cases.
This year’s NRF Big Show illustrated how far we’ve come with RFID in Retail and some exciting developments in IoT.
At this year’s NRF show, we saw some especially innovative new developments from ERP and supply chain vendors, such as behavior-based segmentation, automated allocation and replenishment, new clienteling capabilities, and ground-breaking work on user experience.
We interviewed retailers around the world. Like some many other paths in life, we find we are not so different after all. But there are approaches that differ by culture and geography…
