New York -- Saks Fifth Avenue was able to reach nearly 100% display compliance at its 8th floor shoe department in their flagship New York City store with the TrueVUE Inventory Display Execution application from Tyco Retail Solutions. Using a handheld RFID reader, associates can inventory shoes daily and generate an actionable report of all missing display shoes to replenish.
Previously, this process took several hours per day; up to one week to complete the entire floor; and achieved only 65% compliance. Today, counting display styles takes only 20 minutes for the entire sales floor and enables the store to maintain near perfect display compliance while allowing sales associates to focus on customer service.
“At Saks Fifth Avenue our mission is to provide an exciting selection of high fashion merchandise, and deliver exceptional service and an extraordinary shopping experience that make people look and feel their best,” said Ed Stagman, SVP Store Operations, Saks Fifth Avenue. “Our flagship women’s footwear department in New York City exemplifies this commitment. With Tyco Retail Solutions, we have proven the value of RFID technology for inventory management and merchandising and will continue to leverage the technology to improve sales, optimize merchandise and deliver on our mission.”
