Tyco rolling out RFID-based inventory intelligence across Zara stores worldwide

Neuhausen, Switzerland -- Tyco Retail Solutions announced that fashion retailer Inditex Group, operator of Zara, has awarded Tyco a chain wide contract for RFID-based Inventory Intelligence. The Tyco solution is currently deployed in 700 Zara stores across 22 countries.

The solution has delivered timely, accurate visibility into merchandise styles, colors and sizes for Zara, enabling Inditex to create precise merchandise plans and tailored product assortments, and to deliver an exceptional customer experience across the Zara chain, Tyco said.

With this RFID-based solution, Inditex is achieving operational efficiencies through improved inventory processes and better controls for reducing shrink. The retailer is optimizing its inventory investment and maximizing sales and margins.

According to Pablo Isla, Inditex president, “Implementation of this next-generation technology is the one of the most significant changes ever in how the Group’s stores operate.”
 
Inditex is utilizing Tyco’s Sensormatic dual technology RFID/Acousto-Magnetic (RFID/AM) hard tags and detachers at the point-of-sale.

Tyco is also managing Inditex’s tag recirculation program through a cost effective and environmentally sound approach that allows re-use of RFID/AM tags. With this solution, Inditex is taking advantage of the benefits of RFID-based inventory visibility while controlling shrinkage with robust anti-shoplifting AM technology.
