With leading retailers, such as Macy’s and Lord & Taylor, embracing RFID
and realizing the benefits of RFID technology throughout the supply
chain, Truecount Corporation (www.truecount.com)
has developed a fast-deploying, affordable solution suited to the needs
of small to mid-sized retailers: RFID Essentials.
Truecount Corporation, a leading solutions provider, will be introducing
and demonstrating RFID Essentials at Booth C-549 during the National
Retail Federation’s Big Show, January 13 – 16 in NYC.
According to CEO Zander Livingston, Truecount’s new RFID Essentials
enables any size retail operation to capture the advantages of RFID
technology, quickly, easily and cost-effectively. “Essentials is the
first and only solution that retailers can deploy in a single day to get
up and running quickly with item-level RFID,” he says.
The solution is complete and powerful, providing retailers with the same
benefits big name retailers are experiencing, but with less cost.
Features include the most rapid counting of items possible today,
accompanied by an accuracy rate of 99 percent or higher. With RFID’s
counting speed, the time required for full store inventories is reduced
from days to hours, and cycle counts can be performed as frequently as
desired. This enables full visibility into inventory with substantial
savings of time and labor for all inventory processes. Out-of-stocks and
overstocks are substantially reduced, for what Livingston refers to as
“a perfect sales floor” leading to enhanced customer satisfaction.
“Essentials enables every size retailer to achieve maximum operational
efficiencies,” says Livingston. “Because Essentials is uncomplicated,
the training period is short and the ROI is fast.”
Essentials can integrate into many of the most popular Point Of Sale,
ordering and warehouse systems. At the register, an RFID reader can
supplant or replace the retailer’s existing bar code readers, and at the
door, RFID can replace or supplant existing EAS security tag systems.
Flexibility is another key benefit. Essentials can be used in a single
store or in multiple locations. “It’s ideal for pinpointing problems in
specific departments or sites,” says Livingston, adding that Essentials
is affordable. “Retailers can deploy with an upfront investment of less
than $1,000, and low monthly fees of $399,” he says. “Staff training and
technical support are included.
“We are focused on leveling the playing field to give all retailers the
same competitive advantages as major chains.”
