Industry recognition for innovation and technology leadership in RFID solution development

NEUHAUSEN, Switzerland — October 23, 2018 — Tyco Retail Solutions has been recognized for its innovation and technology leadership in developing and delivering a portfolio of RFID-enabled solutions, providing retailers with real-time in-store visibility and predictive analytics to help drive sales, improve operations and deliver a differentiated brand experience. The company is the recipient of the 2018 Case Study Competition from AIM, the trusted worldwide industry association for the automatic identification industry for nearly half a century.

Presented annually by AIM, the Case Study Competition recognizes Tyco Retail for its innovative TrueVUE® Inventory Intelligence solution, offering retailers a “real view” into accurate enterprise-wide inventory availability— throughout the store and across the enterprise — for success in today’s connected always-on, always-open world of unified commerce.

“Leveraging smart technology, such as RFID, is critical to success in this age of retail transformation,” said Subramanian Kunchithapatham, vice president, engineering, Tyco Retail Solutions. “Progressive retailers understand the power of IoT-enabled RFID solutions to connect stores, inventory, shoppers and associates within the digital retail world. By leveraging our real-time data and actionable insights, we enable retailers to create a seamless customer experience in this digitally-driven shopping world. It’s an honor to be recognized by AIM for our commitment to innovation and industry standards.”

To keep pace with today’s 24/7 connected consumers, retailers cannot rely on traditional inventory management methods. Greater automation through RFID in retail is a game changer in driving inventory accuracy and visibility—key to execution and omni-channel fulfillment. RFID-enabled TrueVUE Inventory Intelligence helps retailers trust their inventory availability, reduce markdowns, improve style sell through, and increase sales and margins. Now, retailers can access their full inventory assortment and establish enterprise-wide inventory accuracy in key product categories to fulfill customer demand. Having this level of inventory accuracy and visibility helps drive increased sales to provide a better customer experience and build brand loyalty.
