“Item level RFID in the fashion industry makes dollars and cents”

This presentation will inform the audience about the use of RFID tags on items of clothing in the fashion industry. Citing examples of the use of RFID tags in both the specialty apparel industry and the department store industry, the presentation will demonstrate how these retailers are increasing sales, lowering store level operational costs, and increasing store level productivity.

Using the data from four different North American retailers, 2 specialty retailers and 2 department stores this presentation will cover the savings of dollars and cents that has been proven to reduce out of stocks, improve inventory accuracy, and at the same time increase sales. Additionally these retailers and others are reducing the amount of time to take inventory, complete cycle counts and increasing conversation rates by greater then 90%.

At first the industry believed that RFID could find significant benefits in the supply chains side of retailing but the really bigger savings are being generated at the item level for apparel side of retailing.
