To help retail organizations improve business performance across the supply chain, Tyco Retail Solutions introduced the TrueVUE v6.0 solution during the 2015 NRF BIG Show.
Working in conjunction with Tyco’s existing portfolio of hardware solutions, the company highlighted the new Sensormatic RFID Antenna and a dual technology AM/RFID pedestal.
One underused area of the store that can benefit from improved visibility with RFID is the fitting room. Fitting rooms furnished with updated RFID technology can more efficiently track merchandise in order to improve customer service and loss prevention.
Updated RFID solutions also can help optimize backend processes. Store associates can locate items easier and move those items to the sales floor quicker to reduce out of stock situations.
RFID solutions also can help reduce shrink by quickly identifying and analyzing issues. In near real time, the Sensormatic solution can provide an analysis of which items were lost, and when and how specific items have been inappropriately removed from the store.
In other news, Tyco Retail Solutions acquired Creativesystems, a Portugal-based RFID solution provider. “Creativesystems’ innovative technology and capabilities will enhance Tyco‘s RFID-based product and services offerings,” said Nancy Chisholm, President of Tyco Retail Solutions. “This strategic investment reinforces our commitment to the European market and store performance solutions to better meet the quickly-evolving needs of our global customers.”
