BY Katherine Boccaccio

Atlanta — Retail analytics firm QuantiSense announced Monday that Hibbett Sports has selected the QuantiSense Decision Orchestration Platform for its enterprise business intelligence solution.

Hibbett Sports needed a single foundation for enterprise business intelligence that could satisfy current merchandising and store operations requirements and expand to other departments over time.

“It is our opinion that QuantiSense has the deepest functionality and most comprehensive retail analytics offering available. Their long-term strategic growth plan was also an important factor in our decision,” said Mike McAbee, strategy officer and VP merchandise planning for Hibbett Sports.

Hibbett Sports is constantly updating its broad merchandise assortment at each store to offer the latest in product technology, performance and fashion in order to meet the diverse needs of its customer’s active lifestyles.

“With QuantiSense, our buyers and planners will have an automated scoring machine that analyzes localized assortments and items, store by store, across a number of performance areas,” said Becky Jones, SVP merchandising, marketing and logistics for Hibbett Sports. “These new capabilities will provide the knowledge required to improve pre-season plans and in-season adjustments, ultimately driving higher sales, margins and inventory productivity,” she continued.

SUPPLY CHAIN

Façonnable, TAGSYS roll out RFID inventory management system

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — TAGSYS RFID said Monday it is rolling out a global deployment of its FiTS (Fashion-item Tracking System) integrated RFID system with fashion brand, Façonnable.

The implementation includes more than 70 branded retail stores, distribution centers on two continents, integration with third-party logistics suppliers, and 100% coverage of the millions of items being sold by Façonnable and its retail partners. The result is complete item-level visibility throughout the supply chain through an optimized system for reducing costs and accelerating replenishment cycles.

The TAGSYS system is based on its UHF RFID hardware and e-ConnectWare software to monitor inventory at each step in the supply chain. The FiTS system provides a centralized management dashboard that delivers detailed real-time information on product availability, shipment status and retail inventory levels. It integrates with existing business process systems such as Façonnable’s ERP system, as well as its distribution partners’ WMS solutions. With the system, Façonnable management can quickly adapt product distribution and replenishment strategies to meet specific market and store needs, reducing item handling costs and improving sales opportunities through reduction of out-of-stocks.

“We have a complex global supply chain that requires timely and accurate information on all of our inventory,” said Yonni Mrejen, VP retail and operations, Façonnable. “The TAGSYS system goes beyond typical RFID project-level implementations and gives us, from a single supplier, a true systematic approach to inventory management at each step of the product life cycle. It provides us the type of visibility and real-time data we need to dynamically make critical decisions on distribution and replenishment, both within our operations as well as with our third-party logistics suppliers and retail partners. The net result is time and cost savings that ultimately produces a better overall customer experience at the retail level.”

Beginning a pilot project a year ago, the company tested the TAGSYS system in retail environments and its two main distribution centers. The implementation is now expanding to include all 70 of Façonnable boutiques worldwide as well as its two logistics suppliers. The deployment includes UHF garment hang tags, HHU-400 handheld readers, the SRU-400 point of sale reader, UHF Security Gates for theft prevention and TAGSYS’ e-Connectware software, which manages RFID data and provides an interface to back-office and in-store systems as well as enterprise applications. When items arrive at a distribution center or retail store, the merchandise is read as its passes through UHF portals positioned at a variety of checkpoints. As the events are recorded, the inventory is automatically updated within Façonnable’s management software.

TAGSYS supports the Façonnable deployment with its Total Management Services offering, which provides comprehensive configuration, integration and implementation services.
